According to EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen, the company is still developing for Wii U—just not nearly as much as for Sony and Microsoft’s systems.
Speaking at the the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media, and Communications Conference, Jorgensen’s statement contradicts EA spokesman Jeff Brown’s comments about EA having “no games in development for Wii U currently.”
“You know, I think NIntendo’s business was more [an] extension of their last console,” Jorgensen said. “We are building titles for the Nintendo console, but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox.”
“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, 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,” Jorgensen said about the PS4 and Xbox One.
