Project Cars on the Wii U has officially been cancelled
It’s official, the Wii U version of Project CARS has been cancelled.
Speaking to NintendoLife, Slight Mad Studios’ boss Ian Bell has officially said the game is done for on the current console and the team will be waiting on an announcement on Nintendo. That’s the same line they were talking before E3 where obviously there ended up not being any new hardware.
“As of now pCARS is simply too much for the Wii U.
Project Cars is available on all other current-gen consoles and on the PC, a sequels has already been confirmed. Maybe the next Nintendo console might get that.
Update: Gamespot has a further and extended statement as well as apology from Slightly Mad Studios
“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.”
