Over the past few weeks, we’ve told you about EA dropping support for various titles for Wii U, including Madden and other games such as Crysis 3, Fuse, and Battlefield 4. EA initially stated that this was due to all games using the Frostbite 3 engine, and that EA would continue to have an “unprecedented partnership” with Nintendo. Today, the company confirms that is has no Wii U games in active development. EA’s Jeff Brown is quoted as saying:
“We have no games in development for the Wii U currently.”
Brown did not further elaborate on whether or not EA would resume development of Wii U games at a later time. Only four EA games have been released for the Wii U to date, with three of them being launch titles. Those titles included Mass Effect 3, Madden NFL 13, and FIFA Soccer 13. Need for Speed Most Wanted is the fourth title, which hit shelves in March.
Nintendo fans should remember Nintendo’s 2011 E3 media conference, when John Riccitiello promised that EA would support Nintendo’s new system.
