Earlier this week, EA – one of the largest video game companies in the world – announced that it has no games in development for Nintendo’s Wii U console. And, of course, this means that the next installments in the popular FIFA and Madden NFL series, which are due to be released this year, will not be coming to Wii U. An EA spokesperson told Eurogamer that the reason FIFA 14 will skip Nintendo’s console is because FIFA 13 sold poorly on Wii U.
“Six months ago FIFA 13 was a launch title on Wii U. Although the game featured FIFA’s award-winning HD gameplay and innovative new ways to play, the commercial results were disappointing. We have decided not to develop FIFA 14 on Wii U.”
