EA revealed some pretty significant news last week, with a spokesperson saying the company currently has no Wii U games in development
. Now, it appears that EA may have some Wii U games in development after all, according to EA CFO Blake Jorgensen. The news comes by way of comments
made by Jorgensen at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference.
"I'll let the consumers ultimately vote on PS versus Xbox," said Jorgensen, weighing in on the major console players. "I think Nintendo's business was more [an] extension of their last console. We are building titles for the Nintendo consoles but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox." Jorgensen's comments would seem to indicate that EA is, in fact, still developing Wii U titles, though it's possible he's referring to the slate of already available games.
If there are Wii U games in development at EA, it's hard to say what they might be. The publisher has definitively stated that many of its biggest 2013 games are not planned for Wii U, including Battlefield 4
, Madden 25
and, most recently, FIFA 14
. We've contacted EA to see if we can clear things up.
