EA Star Wars Titles Won’t Come To Nintendo Wii U


Yesterday we reported that Disney had licensed Star Wars games production to EA. Just last month Disney announced that it was shutting down LucasArts, the game development arm of the studio. At the time, it was said that they were moving from a developing to a licensing model. EA will be putting DICE and Visceral Games on this development job and it has just been learnt that the new Star Wars titles EA will develop won’t be available on Nintendo Wii U console.

DICE technical director Joan Andersson said that their testing of the Frostbite 2 engine on Wii U did not yield promising results so they’re choosing not to go down this path. While adding that DICE does not want to back down from what they consider to be their low-spec machines, Andersson said that at the moment there’s no support for Wii U in Frostbite. Here, low-spec machines mean consoles with current generation technology. To top it all of, he confirmed that Nintendo’s Wii U console isn’t exactly in their focus right now. They’ve not said whether they ever plan on modifying Frosbite enough to make it compatible with Nintendo’s console.
