Need For Speed Rivals to Skip Wii U Release

Posted by at 12:10 pm on May 24, 2013

Need For Speed RivalsNeed for Speed Rivals is another title that won’t be coming to the already down and out Wii U. The latest game in the Need for Speed franchise has been slated for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in November, with the PS4 and Xbox One release expected later this year.

Ghost Game’s producer Marcus Nilsson has confirmed with Eurogamer that Need for Speed Rivals will not be developed for the Wii U.

Nilsson says that “[the Frostbite engine] is not really set up for Wii U. I don’t have all the information, so it wouldn’t be right for me to speak about it. Frostbite 3 is a really capable engine, it’s scalable and it gives us a big advantage on the next generation to support the Xbox One and the PS4, but it’s not being developed on the Wii U.”

News of Frostbite 3 not running on Wii U is not new. Earlier this month DICE technical director Johan Andersson stated that “Frostbite 3 has never been running on Wii U.”Last week EA spokesperson Jeff Brown announced that EA has no current games in development for Wii U U, however the company’s CFO Blake Jorgensen later stated that it actually does, but not anywhere near as many as it does for PS and Xbox.

Need for Speed Rivals joins FIFA 14 and Madden NFL 25 on the list of EA titles that will skip Nintendo’s console.
