It seems EA is backtracking on developing for the Wii U.
Last week EA spokesman, Jeff Brown shocked with the news that, “no games were in development for the Wii U.”
Now EA’s CFO, Blake Jorgensen is contradicting the early news, claiming that EA is developing games for the Wii U, but that there are bigger plans for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. He explained that consumer demand will ultimately dictate which consoles gets developed for.
At the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference Jorgensen offered the following:
“You know, I think Nintendo’s business was more [an] extension of their last console,” Jorgensen said today. “We are building titles for the Nintendo console, but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox.”
“I think what the consumer will find is a lot more powerful gameplay with the new boxes that are coming out, and a lot of excitement, but it’ll remain to be seen as to the services associated with those as to how consumers decide which direction they might want to go.”
