I'm not that convinced about that leak from MyNintendoNews. One of the claims is Crytek working on Wii U. Now, that could mean they either work on a game, or they work on optimizing the Cry Engine for Wii U. Judging from how the site mentions it, it seems like they claim Crytek is working on a game, but in an interview with the German news website Golem.de
, Cevat Yerli of Crytek mentions:
IGM: Sonys Playstation Vita ist seit Februar auf dem Markt, Nintendos Wii U soll Ende des Jahres folgen. Was plant Crytek für diese Konsolen?
Yerli: Weder zur einen noch zur anderen Konsole haben wir aktuell etwas geplant. Für die Wii U wird es Spiele geben, die mit der Cry Engine laufen, allerdings stammen die dann von Lizenznehmern.
This translates to (nope, not Google Translator):
IGM: Sony's Playstation Vita has launched in February, Nintendo's Wii U is supposed to follow towards the end of the year. What does Crytek plan for those consoles?
Yerli: We have no plans for either console yet. There will be games using the Cry Engine for Wii U, but these will be made by license holders.
So, I'm not fully convinced of the site's credibility, but I honestly don't know.
Concerning the GPU: Even though it supports up to 5 devices, depending on the game, the problem could be that the GPU's just not fast enough to render all these images.
EDIT: Just noticed that confirms games using the Cry Engine coming to Wii U? He doesn't mention the time frame, though.
