"But Not Anywhere Near As Many" As PlayStation & Xbox
Despite recently stating that they have "no games in development for the Wii U," EA has suggested that they are still "building titles" for Nintendo platforms. Just, erm, not very many.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen recently spoke at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference, describing Nintendo's console as an "extension" of the Wii rather than a true next-gen machine. "I'll let the consumers ultimately vote on PS versus Xbox," he said, commenting on the recent Xbox One reveal. "I think Nintendo's business was more [an] extension of their last console."
However, he also dropped the following intriguing bombshell: "We are building titles for the Nintendo consoles but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox."
This is at odds with earlier comments made my EA's Jeff Brown, who categorically stated that the publisher isn't currently working on any Wii U games. It's entirely possible that EA have some Wii U games in pre-production or on hold, making both statements valid, but we're not entirely sure what EA plans to bring to Nintendo's console since their flagship Frostbite 3 engine isn't compatible with the hardware. We'll probably see some sports titles if nothing else, followed by a stronger show of support if sales pick up. [via Joystiq]
