Bethesda has so far decided not to support Nintendo's Wii U and has now gone on record as saying they won't start supporting it any time soon.

Upcoming games for Bethesda include Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Evil Within and The Elder Scrolls Online and when speaking to Joystiq, Peter Hines said: "None of the games we've announced are being developed for the Wii U, so it's guaranteed that none of those games are coming to Wii U."

Hines, who is the VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda then went on to say that "It's largely a hardware thing. We] make the games that we want to make, on whatever platforms will support them as developed."

Despite this, Hines did say that beyond their current crop of games, this might not be the case. "Will any future ones come out? I can't say for sure. In our near-term focus it's not on our radar."

This will be seen as a missed opportunity for Nintendo, with the Elder Scrolls franchise a core game in the Western market.
