Metro: Last Light dev: Wii U CPU "horrible, slow"

According to Metro: Last Light developer and 4A Games‘ CTO Oles Shishkovtsov, the Wii U “has a horrible, slow CPU,” explaining why Metro: Last Light won’t be making it onto the console.

In an interview with NowGamer, Shishkovtsov explained that the team couldn’t justify the amount of effort porting the game to the Wii U would take:

We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game – potentially to its detriment – we just figured it wasn’t worth pursuing at this time. It’s something we might return to. I really couldn’t make any promises, though.

Though the developers had previously confirmed that Metro: Last Light would not be making it to the console, this is the first we’ve heard of the reasons behind the decision.
