Rumour: Gearbox Working on Next Gen Nintendo Wii U First Person Shooter? on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Rumours have started circulating, suggesting that Gearbox is creating a new multiplatform IP that's also heading to Nintendo Wii U.

As posted in the IGN forums, an unconfirmed report suggests that the studio is in the early stages of a crafting together a new first person shooter for next-generation systems that also includes Nintendo's Wii U. Gearbox Software are known for the Borderlands, Brothers in Arms and more recently Aliens: Colonial Marines. Unreal Engine 4 was mentioned and that there is a Wii U version in the works also.

Although strongly rumour at the moment, the prospect of a "next-generation" FPS from Gearbox that includes Nintendo Wii U is an intriguing one.

Hope so. Just so people stop saying wii u not next gen

It wouldn't surprise me, considering all the praise Gearbox has been giving Wii U with Aliens: Colonial Marines.

That's because Wii U IS NEXT GEN!!! When will people learn!!

I thought Epic said Wii U couldn't run Real Engine 4.

Then again, Epic says lots of things that make no sense, so who knows.

They also said that the engine can be downgraded to fit Wii U, so it's not entirely out of question

I thought Epic has also said that Unreal Engine 4 is scalable so that even cell phones can run it.

From what I remember, Epic said they wouldn't produce a Wii U version of UE4 specifically - but someone else could scale it/adapt the engine for Wii U.

All I saw was the one where they said they had no interest in putting it on there, my bad.

Good news in any case, Gearbox is awesome.
