Gone Home no longer in the works for Wii U as all console ports are now shelved

Posted on March 3, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

It was revealed last August that Gone Home would be coming to Wii U. Midnight City, Majesco’s indie publishing label, was in charge of handling the port.

The lack of news since then was never an encouraging sign, and designer Steve Gaynor has now confirmed that Gone Home’s console ports have been shelved. The game “is not actively in development any longer” for consoles, Gaynor confirmed during a Kinda Funny Games live stream. Additionally, Fullbright’s “deal with Majesco has sadly come to an end.”

Gaynor’s comments in full:

And, unfortunately, we don’t have exciting, good news about that, I wish I did. Yeah, it’s been quite a while, and as you kind of sensed, there’s been some delays and maybe you have seen some things that have changed with Majesco. At this point, unfortunately, I have to acknowledge that Gone Home for console is not actively in development any longer. That deal with Majesco has sadly come to an end. So, we don’t really know what that means for Gone Home for console for us. In the immediate term, it’s no longer a going thing.

Fullbright does appear to still be interested in bringing Gone Home to consoles. For now though, the team is working on its next game known as Tacoma.
