Despite the Wii U being on technical parity with the Xbox 360 and PS3, Visceral Games' vice president and general manager Steve Papoutsis has told NintendoWorldReport that a Wii U version of Dead Space 3 is "not currently in the plan."
Dead Space 3 has been given an official release window of February 2013, which fits in nicely with the Wii U which is expected to be released this Christmas period.
EA has already confirmed that they have two unannounced Wii U titles in the works, but by the sounds of it, Dead Space 3 is not one of them.
We'll be surprised if a Wii U version doesn't arrive at some point however, survival horror seems to suit the Gamepad controls perfectly.
