Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 Is Unlikely To Come To Wii U

tiger_woods_pga_tour_14

It’s looking increasingly unlikely that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 will come to the Wii U. The franchise had done incredibly well on Nintendo’s previous home console, the Wii. Tiger Woods for Wii was the best reviewed version of the game and sold incredibly well thanks to the intuitive Wii remote. Kotaku contacted EA to find out why they’re not bringing the latest instalment to Wii U. Here’s their vague response.

“We’re currently focused on delivering a great Tiger Woods PGA TOUR experience for our fans on the Xbox 360 and PS3, where we have a great opportunity to connect fans to the real world of golf and each other. We don’t have any further platform announcements at this time.”

Thanks, Jamie

    1. Yeah, such a disappointment, oh well I probably you know… PLAY THE ACTUALLY SPORT RATHER THAN ACTUALLY PLAY IT ON A COMPUTER SCREEN!.

      Sports games on future consoles are fucked

    2. Me too!
      Tiger is such an amazing role model, who I would love to play as a character so I can pretend I’m just like this picture of ethics and morality!
      Oh well.

  1. That’s disappointing, and not a good sign for sports on the console in the future. I really believe the controller would be great for sports games: football, golf, soccer, hockey… and had planned to buy all 4 on the system. I did not buy Madden at launch, simply because I believe the first round of sports games on a console are typically awful, and a lot of bugs and issues are worked out by the second year. Very disappointing. Looks like the PS4 will be getting my money.

    1. Just because the console isn’t getting sports games means its bad?… you do know the PS4 and 720 are most likely AREN’T going to be getting sport titles either

      1. Not really because since Microsoft is planning on making their next gen console a tablet device called the X-Surface then its going to suffer the same fate.
        Same goes with Sony’s PS4, they’ll probably get a few titles at best but with the hardware specs it has might turn some developers off, not that it isn’t power its just that the CPU in both the PS4 and 720/Xbox/X-Surface use almost the same CPU which is a bulldozer CPU… which is shit… big time.

        Wii U isn’t getting sports games… from EA. There are other sports games coming to the Wii U that at being made by other developers such as Project CARS to name a few

      2. That makes all 3 next gen systems that won’t be seeing sports games! Ps4 and Xbox will be seeing sports titles, EA have to sell them somewhere. Stop talking bs

      1. Actually no, if its just the sports game side of things its a very same genre meaning the Wii U isn’t going to miss much money, most games now a days are either FPS, TPS and Platformers, with some horror games thrown into the mix.

        So really, a same part of a genre that doesn’t even have much to being with really isn’t that much of a big deal, besides the Wii U will still get Wii Sports U, Wii Fit U and so on. Though those games might be first party they still pretty much count.

  2. I knew this would start happening. Hardly any wii I sections in local supermarkets and game shops. I bought the shocking FIFA wii u just to help towards sales, so that FIFA 14 would hopefully come to wii u on par with other consoles. I’ve had all Nintendo consoles since snes and am convinced this will be the last Nintendo home system. If it wasn’t for lego city and zelda hd I’d sell my wii u while I could still get some money for it.

      oh grow up, we have heard the “its Nintendo’s last console” since the SNES. Its absurd. Nintendo literally was printing money with the Wii for 6 years straight. They have cash reserves, more than enough to survive several flops in a row (How’s Sony holding up lately as a company? the Eye, the Move, the PS3, the Vita, not to mention bleeding money out of EVERY division)

      The Wii U is following the 3DS trajectory at the moment, once the software comes, the hardware will start to move.

  3. EA is only concerned about the PS3 and 360’s installed base :/ . ”We are only putting the game on platforms where we can make a little bit of money” Even though a Good Tiger woods with Wii motion plus would sell quite well.
    They should be supporting Wiiu today and the fans would support them in return in the future. Maybe the Wiiu will get a late version. Which is what happened to Need for speed.

      1. Exactly. The ps4 and 720 aren’t going to sell fast. They’re going to get outsold by PS3 and 360 for at least a year. If they’re a big leap in graphics , they will have to be REALLY expensive or being sold at a loss.

      3. The business/economic scenario was different in 2006/2007. Today we have a plethora of tech devices (mainly tablets and smartphones) – absent by that time – for which games can be developed. Now we are facing a tendency of rearrangement in terms of business strategy. Since the number of platforms today is increased, I would not be surprised if from now on the industry choose distinct ways to make support happen – or – sadly for some – not happen.

  5. Should ea, still, not putting their shitty games on the Wii U surprise you?! They won’t put their games on the Wii u because of nintendo’s unwillingness to cave to their demands! Who cares about their GD sports games?! Not me. EA does not drive this market on its own there are plenty of great devs out there that do much better work than EA… And they have one of the worst development environments in the industry! Can’t wait for them to fail… Probably wont see that in the near future, but still want it to happen.

    1. I care about them. As do many gamers. And if you want a lot of quality content on your system, you should care too. If EA doesn’t see the support to bring their massively popular titles to the system, than other games will forgo it as well. Software and hardware have a delicate balance. A system needs software to sell. Software wants a system to have sold a lot before they bring out their games. It’s like someone new to the job market, and having all the positions require “Work experience.” People aren’t going to buy a console if it won’t play some of their favorite games.

  6. Is Nintendo doomed? No. But they may need some extreme changes in the front office. Someone has got to come in and get these key relationships back. Whether we like sports games or not shouldn’t matter. Software sells hardware (in gaming). The Wii U needs all the support from third parties as they can get. I fear 1st party titles and the few exclusives that remain will not be enough.

    1. Sure, they need to have deals but they also dont need to go making them at every game thats is going to be released. Very few titles are realy wort it, look at metal gear raising it looks great but it feals alot like bayonneta so why whould Nintendo bring a game thats going to be competition whit them?

      1. Because in the end if I didn’t get into Bayonetta but loved MGS, Nintendo still has an opportunity to make money off of me.

        Hardcore Nintendo fans will buy/already have bought the Wii U. But they need to make it an OBVIOUS choice for those people on the fence. I personally think more software of all types can help with that. If a unique version of Tiger Woods can end up selling a machine, (which I think it could) then it becomes worth it to maintain some of these 3rd party relationships.

Nintendo is a better games developer than them, and secondly it’s a Japanese company that has outclassed and has smarter developers than western companies.

  10. I used to really enjoy EA games since the original Madden. I “used” to. I was thinking I might buy some of their titles when they released real efforts on the Wii U. Doesn’t look like that will happen and all that means is I won’t be spending any money on their games. It’s getting to the point where I’m’ even feeling I won’t buy their games if they did release they, because they’re acting so greedy with their recent ports and disrespectful of Nintendo and it’s customers. Once MH3, X and Wii Fit U are released, EA will have lost their chance to get me re-interested in their franchises.

    1. I used to buy the annual releases of Madden, FIFA, and NHL, but as I got older, I didn’t have to play as much, so I kept them on a 3 year rotation. One year I get Madden, the next NHL, then Fifa, then Madden, etc. Was really looking forward to sports titles on the Wii U. It’s a shame.

The only reason i would want the new sony and ms systems to fail is so ea can fail because they suck so bad. I hope they just fade away…

Speaking of Mario Golf, DAMN I WISH NINTENDO WOULD HURRY UP AND BRING A NEW ONE TO THE Wii U. It’s been too long since Toadstool Tour. Can’t believe they skipped the Wii altogether. But if a new one DOES come out, it better have the mini-golf mode back. I’ll never understand why they took that out of Toadstool Tour?

  16. As a huge sports fan this is concerning. While I’m fairly positive that Tiger will make his Wii U debut next year, when the base is there to profit, I really don’t want to see this turn into the Wii again where NCAA never shows up on the game list. Playing Madden on Wii U is a lot of fun, addictive almost with the gamepad play calling and route drawing and thats with a “sup-par” development. If they put some thought and effort into the games they made for the Wii U, they could set a new standard for sports games not seen since motion control.

  17. The problem is that EA is mad at Nintendo for some unknown reason amd releases this half-arsed ports with less features than the other platforms even though the Wii U is more than capable of having all that.

  18. Newsflash people, the game gets released next month, meaning that because of the different WiiU structure there’s no way they can just port it over and slap something on the gamepad in that short of a timeframe. Plus the game was already in the development stage long before the finalized WiiU developer kit came out. This explains why they said that they did not have any further announcements regarding other consoles, they also didn’t mention anything regarding PC or handhelds. This title is misleading and is only used to gain views and become troll bait.

I most no doubt will make sure to do not fail to remember this web site and give it a glance regularly.
