Slightly Mad Studios Cancels Project Cars on Wii U

Jason Clement

If you were looking forward to playing Project Cars someday on the Wii U, well... I have bad news for you. Developer Slightly Mad Studios has announced that they have officially dropped version that was in the works for Nintendo's console.


Andy Tudor, creative director on the project, had this to say about the decision:


"Despite much perseverance on the Wii U version of
Project Cars
we will no longer be actively pursuing development on it as the quality does not meet our own high standards nor our intended vision for the title on this platform. We eagerly look forward to any announcement of further hardware from Nintendo but right now
Project Cars
is simply too much for Wii U despite our very best efforts. Apologies to our Nintendo fans out there that have been waiting for further news on this but have no desire to release a product that isn't at the very least comparable with our highest-rated versions on other platforms. We optimistically look forward therefore to what the future may hold."


While it's a shame that the Wii U won't be receiving what looks to be a quality, third-party racer, the news isn't entirely surprising either. Past reports indicated that they were having trouble getting the game to run up to speed with the other versions (on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), and not wanting to compromise on their vision of the game, the rest is history.


They haven't ruled out a version for Nintendo's next console (codenamed 'NX'), but it's worth noting that they've already begun development on Project Cars 2, so if the NX gets anything from them, it's likely to be that one.
