Activision Publishing chief executive Eric Hirshberg has reassured Nintendo fans that the company will continue to support the Wii U despite the consoles disappointing sales figures. Hirshberg acknowledges that the system is under performing, but says the company will do everything it can do to assure that consumers see the appeal in the platform. However, the company hasn’t announced its big hitters such as Destiny or Diablo 3 for Nintendo’s latest home console, Wii U.
“That’s exactly right, Nintendo has been a great partner for us. It’s a very successful company but obviously having a rough go with the Wii U launch thus far. I’m sure Nintendo and the rest of the industry wanted a different result for the Wii U, but if we can add to the appeal of the platform then we absolutely will. Nintendo is a company that’s had hardware hits and misses in the past, but it has always found ways to remain completely relevant. It has some of the best game-makers in the world, and I wouldn’t count them out.”
