Electronic Arts, who recently stopped developing for Wii U due to poor system sales, seems to be eager to bury the hatchet with Nintendo. Vice President of EA’s Sports division, Andrew Wilson, has stated that his company has a “tremendous relationship” with Nintendo, and assured gamers that Wii U games may very well be developed by EA in the not-too-distant future.
EA recently announced that FIFA 14, which is conspicuously missing from Wii U in its console lineup, would be free with Xbox One preorders. This move has left many wondering if EA now favors Microsoft, however, another EA executive, Frank Gibeau, laid that theory to rest, saying there is “no strategic tilt”.
Wilson’s comment about Nintendo appears below.
“We’re not building for Nintendo right now, but we have a tremendous relationship with them and have had a long relationship with them, and should it make sense for us to do so in the future we’ll absolutely roll that into the plan.”
