Project Cars is one highly anticipated racing title that was launched earlier this year for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developer had promised that it will release the title on Nintendo Wii U as well but that version didn’t arrive with the rest and since then it has more or less been in limbo. There’s confirmation now on the status of Project Cars for Wii U: it has been cancelled.
Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed that Project Cars won’t be coming to the Nintendo console because the game is “simply too much for the Wii U.”
Bandai Namco, the publisher for Project Cars, also weighed in on this with a statement and reiterated that the title won’t be coming to the Wii U.
It said that active development will no longer be pursued since the quality doesn’t meet Bandai Namco’s standards nor its intended vision for this title on the platform.
All eyes are now on Nintendo to launch new hardware that might be able to better support Project Cars, “but right now Project CARS is simply too much for Wii U despite our very best efforts.”
Slightly Mad Studios is now looking towards the future, it has already started a crowdfunding campaign for a sequel to Project Cars and seeks $10.7 million to bring it to life.
