EA producing Wii U games, but 'not anywhere near as many' as for PS and Xbox

So is EA making Wii U games, or isn’t it? Last week, company spokesman Jeff Brown said that the company has "no games in development for the Wii U currently," but according to CFO Blake Jorgensen, there actually are plans to make games for the new console, reports Polygon. Responding to a question at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media, and Communications Conference, Jorgensen stated that "we are building titles for the Nintendo console, but not anywhere near as many as we are for PS or Xbox." He also contrasted the power of the next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft with Nintendo’s Wii U, which he described as "more an extension of their last console."

Earlier today, at the unveiling of Microsoft's heavily-anticipated new console, the Xbox One, EA showed previews of four new games for the platform, including FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, NBA Live 2014, and EA Sports UFC. Given its scaled-back stable of only 11 core titles for 2014, and neither Madden NFL 2013, EA’s new Star Wars games, nor other Frostbite 3 games like Battlefield 4 headed to the Wii U, "not anywhere near as many" sounds about right.
