Gamebryo engine coming to the Wii

OblivionIs the power of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 coming to the Wii? Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but at least the engine these games are built on is getting a makeover for Nintendo’s console.

Emergent Game Technologies, the makers of the Gamebryo engine have been hard at work creating an optimized version, so developers wishing to capitalize on the success of the Wii can do so with some of the same tools as on other consoles.

Said Geoffrey Selzer, CEO of Emergent:

“We are delighted to announce the Wii port of our Gamebryo engine. With the success of Nintendo’s Wii console catching much of the industry off guard and offering fresh interactive features, developers need new tools to be able to develop for multiple platforms that offer vastly different capabilities and require different programming techniques

We are committed to making multiplatform development as painless as possible while still delivering industry leading performance. Gamebryo for Wii simply sets a new standard for middleware designed for this top selling platform. We are very proud to be part of Nintendo’s Third Party Tools program."

The new version of the engine will of course be adapted to a certain degree, but gamers can still expect good things to come of this announcement.

Fallout 3 for the Wii?! Probably not.
