EA CFO: EA Is Developing Wii U Games

May 22, 2013 -

Last week EA's Jeff Brown said that the company had "no games in development for the Wii U currently," but a statement from EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen noting that EA "is developing games for the Wii U," but not as many as the company is developing for Sony and Microsoft's consoles seems to contradict Brown's comments.

Jorgensen made the comments in response to a question by an attendee of the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference about who would win the impending consoles wars.

"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."

Was Jorgensen simply misquoted? Did he have a moment of confusion, or did Jeff Brown make an erroneous statement last week when he said EA currently has no Wii U games in development?

We don't know but we have reached out to EA to get some clarification.

Heh.  Keeping stories strait even within a small company can sometimes be difficult.  It would not surprise me if this was simply a case of people who think they know everything that is happening simply not having the full picture.

You can only attend so many meeting and read so many memos....

Im going to guess its the Star Wars games, Disney wont let them make them without releasing them on Nintendo platforms (Disney are quite chummy with Nintendo afterall)
