Slightly Mad Studios has finally officially announced that it has cancelled all plans to bring Project CARS to the Wii U.
Creative director Andy Tudor explained to following to GameSpot, while apologizing for betraying the expectation of Nintendo fans:
“Despite much perseverance on the Wii U version of Project Cars, we will no longer be actively pursuing development on it as the quality does not meet our own high standards nor our intended vision for the title on this platform.”
“We eagerly look forward to any announcement of further hardware from Nintendo but right now Project Cars is simply too much for Wii U despite our very best efforts. Apologies to our Nintendo fans out there that have been waiting for further news on this but we have no desire to release a product that isn’t at the very least comparable with our highest-rated versions on other platforms. We optimistically look forward therefore to what the future may hold.”
NOTE: And it’s over… the Wii U version of Project CARS has finally crashed and burned! Pretty much what I expected to hear since several months ago. Let’s hope they might still bring it to the NX if it’s easy enough to port the game over… o.0′
