EA says no new games being developed for Wii U

EA says no more Wii U game development is taking place, no plans for future titles either

In an interview with Kotaku earlier this week, an EA Spokesman said that the company is not currently developing any games for Nintendo's Wii U console. This comes just two years after both companies announced an "unprecedented partnership" to bring big name titles to the companies flagship consoles.

"We have no games in development for the Wii U currently," company spokesperson Jeff Brown told Kotaku yesterday. Although he did not rule out future development for the Wii U, as things stand right now we will not see ports of the Sims 4, Battlefield 4, or the new FIFA game set to launch soon.

This also means that there will be no NFL games produced for the Wii U console as EA holds exclusive rights on future NFL titles. We want to know how you feel about EA pulling out of Wii U game development. Leave your thoughts in a comment below.
