EA is keeping a close eye on the Wii U, won’t fully commit yet
EA has been saying good things about the Wii U here and there, and they got some games in development for the system as well. But unlike its competitor Ubisoft, EA isn’t full on board the Wii U train yet. Speaking to IGN, EA’s Cheif Financial Officer Peter Moore acknowledged the “lackluster response” Nintendo got at E3 2012, and said that the company is keeping a “very close eye on the platform”. However, Moore did confirm that EA will be bringing some of their franchises to the Wii U. So far EA has announced Mass Effect 3 and a couple of EA Sports titles for Nintendo’s new console. Moore wrapped up by saying EA learned an important lesson with last generation consoles, which was to “never underestimate Nintendo”.
In a press release today, EA confirmed that it’s upcoming “Summer Showcase” will include some Wii U titles. It’s unknown if those titles are games that have already been announced, or whether it’s something new. It’s been rumored that Battlefield 3 would be coming to the Wii U ever since we saw the game in a Wii U trailer at E3 2011. For more, check out the full list of EA Wii U games.
