THQ rep says "some work" was done on Wii U version of upcoming shooter, but decision to cancel the game was made "fairly early on."
The Wii U version of Metro: Last Light was canceled early on in development, THQ head of global communications and studio representative for 4A Games Huw Benyon told Spong.
"Our look at the Wii U extended to a very early look at some very early kits. We we did some work on it, but we made a decision fairly early on that we werent going to commit further resource to it," Benyon said. "So yeah, we didnt go too far."
Benyon also addressed the rumor that Metro: Last Light was scuttled for Wii U due to the system's "horrible, slow CPU." He said this was not the case.
"Take any of the comments youve seen attributed with a pinch of salt," Benyon said. "Its certainly not been based on any kind of analysis of final hardware."
