WWE officially confirms lack of WWE 14 on Wii, Wii U


Well that's it, the final nail in the coffin. No WWE games on any Nintendo platforms this year really bums me out. Thanks to Emily for the heads up.

Why is everyone abandoning Nintendo??? Nintendo needs to have a Killer E3. Make these guys regret abandoning them...

^Eh, my guess is Nintendo will gain back some faith from 3rd parties when they show them how it's done with their 1st party titles after E3, and besides, Nintendo can survive on their 1st party titles alone anyway. They've been doing it basically since the N64 days. Nintendo hasn't had truly good significant 3rd party support since the SNES days.

I would care about this if WWE games were worth playing anymore.

^ That's the thing though. Even if the support was bad back then, at least it was still there.

Third party support for Wii U is pretty much non-existent now. I'd be lying if I claimed I was going to buy most of the games that have been confirmed as 360/PS3 only lately, but even so...what gives? I can't imagine a lot of them requiring a huge investment to get running on the console.

So to repeat the question in the first post; just why IS everyone abandoning Nintendo? I could understand it if it was some AAA title that had millions upon millions of dollars invested to them, but I can't really think of a logical reason as to why this isn't heading our way.

I'm not really a financial expert on this topic, but would the profit really be so low here? Or is there some other reason?

THEY ARE A!HOLES,

They are not hurting Nintendo instead they are pissing off us, why should I be mad at Nintendo they did not do anything wrong!

By the way if you want to know who might be doing this I smell MICROSOFT all over this!
They bribed developers when the 360 came out with free large lcd tvs, the guy who was vp at Microsoft is now ceo of EA sports!
They stopped rayman to come out on wii u with their unfair contact that no one else can come out before they have their game out too, (It wasn't a xbox game in the first place!!! It was supposed to be a Wii u launch exclusive title!)

And remember when they failed to buy off Nintendo they bought off Rare!

Microsoft is making a monopoly and they are first trying to Finnish Nintendo first before the go after sony

Get ready Sony fans!

This is nothing new, they did this to apple!

So everyone in here still think there is no console wars here and its only fans!
THINK AGAIN!!!!

Sorry RMC, I know you are a huge WWE fan, but the WWE games haven't been good for a LONG time now. It's a shame too, because when I see the more recent series of televised 'pushes' to happen, they have yielded results that harken me back to a better day.

Perhaps someone will design and execute a Wrestling game for Wii U - I can think of tonnes of things that the screen could add or make better.

Anyone else realize that it's not coming to the PS4 or Xbox Next either? I mean what will become the current gen is being skipped over.

And it's not like either system will be backwards compatible. Just think about that. It's not Wii U that is the problem - it's the next/current gen!

I noticed that too. And 2K is skipping E3 completely. I wonder if there are some financial issues.

If they made a business decision based upon sales and such, I can accept that. And while it is a series, an annual sports game is a stand-alone purchase. So my guess is that 2K is looking at this like a cash cow, knowing where it can make good coin with minimum effort.

Man, if this is happening already, I can't imagine how worse are going to be things when the ps4 and the next xbox reach maturity.

LOL Good One :)

@Dax
This is why devs are justified in abandoning support for NIntendo consoles.

@Mario1234567 Not enough. First the console has to begin printing money, then they "might" consider releasing games on Nintendo hardware.
