Project Cars on Wii U Cancelled

 

The Wii U Version of Project Cars has been Cancelled, with Slightly Mad Studio's saying that that game was "simply too much for Wi U" and that the port did not meet the standards of he studio. 

The studio's creative director, Andy Tudor, apologized to Wii U owners that were eagerly awaiting the release of this game on Nintendo's platform.

 

"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."

  Wii U Project Cars Cancelled

 

The Studio has always stated that a Wii U version of the game "was always a maybe" but it is nonetheless disappointing to see the Wii U is being skipped by yet another multiplatform release. Right now it seems that Nintendo have released a console that is a generation too late in terms of hardware, easily beating the PS3 and Xbox 360 in terms of raw power but sorely lacking when compared to other current generation consoles.

I've been reading quite a few peoples comments on Facebook and various forums and most Wii U owners are claiming it's simply down to the devs not being bothered to optimize, Apparently it's a maHOOsive conspiracy XDQuote

I own a Wii U, it could handle this if it was optimised.

Just because it's not as powerful as the other two, don't discount it. The games that are made for it, are as far as I've seen, better polished and all run at 60fps.

It might be more stylised but they are excellent in terms of gameplay. It's a cracking little box for it's size and unobtrusiveness. They make actual, fun to play games, instead of scaling down PC shooters and stuff that should be running on pc hardware to fit onto crap hardware they make more unique platform specific titles and they work extremely well.Quote

It could handle it if the graphics were lowered by quite a bit but the game is about photo realistic driving *Or as close as is possible today* and lowering the eye candy just to get it to run on an under performing system defeats the purpose of the game.

I do hope Nintendo's next system is full of horsepower, Nintendo really **** the bed when it comes to 3rd party dev support with the Wii/U because they put lower end hardware inside their box.Quote
