Stealth Inc. 2 will be an exclusive for Nintendo’s Wii U. It’s a surprising announcement from indie developer Curve Studios. They have been vocal about their preference for Sony’s PlayStation platform over Microsoft’s Xbox console. Back in 2013, Curve even publicly expressed their disappointment in Microsoft’s seeming lack of interest in indie games, while offering their assistance to other developers that wanted to get their games on Sony’s network. Curve went on to develop Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor and Proteus for the PlayStation 3 and Vita. So why shift their Stealth Inc. sequel to the Wii U? Jason Perkins, managing director at Curve, explained their reasoning CVG.
“There isn’t much competition on Nintendo’s store, so we thought that commercially it’s a really good opportunity for us. Nintendo has sold a few million Wii Us too, so the audience is there. We want to see what the market is like. We want to test it.”
As for how “exclusive” the deal is, Curve refuses to say if it’s for a timed period of exclusivity or a permanent arrangement. Stealth Inc. 2 will include will include co-op gameplay using the Wii U Gamepad. No release date has been announced.
