It took EA awhile, but the company has finally confirmed that Need for Speed: Most Wanted is heading to Wii U. The game won’t be ready for some time, however: it’s expected sometime next year.
An EA representative said:
“We are very excited to deliver Need for Speed: Most Wanted on more platforms and to more gamers. Starting Oct. 30, Most Wanted will be available on X360, PS3, PS Vita, Android and iOS. Then in 2013, Nintendo fans will be able to experience what it means to be Most Wanted amongst their friends on the Wii U.”
It’s currently unclear if the Wii U version will be cross-platform compatible. So we don’t know if it will make use of the Cloudcompete feature, nor do we know if players will be able to complete against users on other platforms.
