  • It's no big secret that Electronic Arts all but abandoned the Wii U a few months ago - a decision that went very public when an EA programmer went on a mult-tweet rant about Nintendo via Twitter.  While the game developer/publisher has no current plans to work on anything for Nintendo's 8-month-old gaming console, they say there's not looking to end support for those who play its previously-released games (Madden NFL 13 in specific) on it.

    "We don't have any plans on turning off the off switch," states Thomas Singleton, a Producer at EA Sports.

    Still, he says that those dedicated to playing games on the Wii U will be missing out.

    "I think the Nintendo fans will probably miss out a little bit, but the Wii U version that we created last year was a great product and you can continue playing that product because it's not going anywhere - it's still there," commented Singleton.  "Whether or not we're shipping a new version?  We're not."

    Madden NFL 13 for Wii U, which was a launch title for the console, sold more than 32,000 copies globally as of June 8, 2013, according to vgchartz.com.  The game was also released for Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita.

    Madden NFL 25, the next edition of the franchise, is due for release onto Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this August and as a launch title for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
