During E3 2013, EA was continually asked about its stance towards Wii U. The publisher originally committed to the console at E3 2011, where it announced an "unprecedented partnership" with Nintendo.
That ended rather quickly. EA put out a couple of so-so sports games, the outdated Mass Effect 3, and the admittedly high-quality Need for Speed: Most Wanted U before calling it a day.
But EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has once again given assurance that it hasn't abandoned Wii U. Gibeau told IGN that EA is "not writing it off" and is "not not developing for Wii U." EA will be watching the console as it focuses on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“it’s been 60 days since we launched Need for Speed Most Wanted on the Wii U. We’ve launched four games. We’re proud of them. They’re in the marketplace and they’re selling. The guys inside the studio are looking at the Wii U tech and they’re looking at the platform. They understand it. As it develops, if there’s an opportunity to publish more games on the Wii U, we’ll do that. We’re not writing it off. We’re not not developing for the Wii U. We’re just watching it, and we’re really focused right now on PS4 and Xbox One, to really nail that transition.”
