Ouch! That headline has gotta hurt the big N. Earlier this month, EA DICE’s Johan Andersson said that Frostbite 3 won’t be ported to the Wii U. In other words, the company’s next-gen franchises would be taking a pass on the console.
That’s a big deal. It means no Battlefield 4, no Star Wars games, no Mass Effect spin-off. That really hurts. And now, EA’s Jeff Brown is saying that the same fate applies to all of the company’s titles, and that the company has “no games in development for the Wii U currently.”
It sucks to have a Wii U. EA had made a 2011 promise to support the console. Brown wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the company returning to the platform, but they feel they have fulfilled that promise by releasing games like Mass Effect 3 and Need For Speed Most Wanted already. Nintendo better pull something big out of their plumbers hat this year.
