Earlier this year, EA Sports announced that its all-new Madden 25 is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, leading people to believe the game was skipping Nintendo’s latest console. And today, a representative for the publisher confirmed that the Madden series will not arrive on Wii U in 2013. This may come to a surprise to some, as it will mark the first time the series will skip Nintendo platforms since 1991, and because the last title in the series, Madden NFL 13, was a Wii U launch title.
“We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013. However, we have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future.”
