No ‘Madden 25′ for Nintendo’s Wii U

According to NintendoWorldReport, EA does not plan on releasing this year’s Madden installment, Madden 25on the Wii U. This is the first time since 1991 that a Madden title has failed to appear on a console made by Nintendo.

“We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013. However, we have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future.”

The likely cause of all of this was the under-performance of last year’s Madden 2013 on the Wii U. Just a couple months after launch the number of players online was below 50–pretty unprecedented for a series known for good sales.

It’s certainly strange to think about, but many titles seem to be skipping out on the Wii U lately, with the most recent coming from Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts. What do you think of the lack of titles on the Wii U? Share your comments in the below!
