Electronic Arts didn’t really have much to confirm that was coming for the Wii U, with only Mass Effect 3 as the only title EA announced. Despite whispers suggesting that the company wanted to see what kind of sales to expect from the Wii U before committing to more titles, the company apparently has plans for other titles; we just don’t have anything to announce yet.
This was the message that EA CEO John Riccitiello gave in a conference call with investors. Riccitiello also said they had a number of sports games that were going to be coming to the Wii U platform. No additional details were announced and he provided no timetable when these sports titles might arrive; but the safe bet would likely be 2013, at the earliest.
EA isn’t the only publisher who didn’t announce much for the Wii U. Powerhouse Activision had nothing to announce, either; but Skylanders Giants is confirmed as headed to the Wii U platform. Activision seems to be taking a wait and see attitude, with Ubisoft taking an “all in” approach with the publisher announcing a large number of titles headed for the Wii U.
