In May, the Project Cars game was released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and was expected to be launched for Wii U later this year. Project Cars for Wii U cancelled because the game was too much for Wii U, confirms the UK based Slightly Mad Studios.
Project Cars for Wii U cancelled because Slightly Mad Studios believe that the hardware of Wii U cannot handle the graphics of the game. But they also hinted that they may release Project Cars on Nintendo’s upcoming NX console, provided the new hardware can handle the game.
Project Cars for Wii U cancelled and the Slightly Mad Studios released the following statement:
“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.”
Earlier this year, Studio head of Project Cars, Ian Bell admitted that it was a big challenge to launch the game on the Wii U, as there were some issues related to the game’s frame rate on Wii U. Now Bell has officially confirmed that Project Cars for Wii U cancelled because the game was too much for Wii U. Nintendo’s next console will be releasing most probably by next year and Nintendo fans can expect that the game will be supported on that device.
