EA  is  working on Wii U games after all

EA is working on Wii U games after all

May 22, 2013 | By Mike Rose

"We are building titles for the Nintendo console, but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox."
- Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen says that EA is making games for the Wii U after all.

EA's Jeff Brown said last week, "We have no games in development for the Wii U currently," and the company confirmed that the next installment of Madden will not be released for the Wii U.

However, Jorgensen backtracked on this sentiment during the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference this week, as reported by Polygon.

You know, I think Nintendo's business was more [an] extension of their last console," he said, adding that EA is in fact working on games for the Wii U -- although not as many as for the Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

"I think what the consumer will find is a lot more powerful gameplay with the new boxes that are coming out, and a lot of excitement," he added, "but it'll remain to be seen as to the services associated with those as to how consumers decide which direction they might want to go."
