Gibeau: EA to “have a bigger line-up for Wii U” than Wii

A lack of key third-party announcements was one of the biggest disappointments regarding Wii U at E3 this year, yet news is slowly starting to trickle out.

Whilst it was confirmed during Nintendo’s press conference that Electronic Arts would bring Mass Effect 3 to the console, we later learned that FIFA 13 and Madden NFL 13 would also follow suit.

Now, EA Games Label president Frank Gibeau has reiterated the publisher’s support for Nintendo’s new platform, sharing that further games are in development.

“We’ve got a couple of more games in development for Wii U and we’ll have a bigger line-up for Wii U than we did on the Wii,” Gibeau said. “It is the first next-generation platform coming out so we’re really supporting it.

“Just looking at E3 and where we’re at, we wanted to hold our fire a little bit on a couple of the other games that we’re working on. We’ll have more announcements this summer on the rest of the Wii U line-up.”

Gibeau later explained that they will “do some new, unique things with it on the Wii U controller and the second screen that we’re innovating on.”
