EA Sports’ Madden NFL 25 will not release on Wii U, a company representative has confirmed with Nintendo World Report. This will mark the first time the series had skipped over Nintendo platforms since 1991.
“We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013,” the spokesperson said. “However, we have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future.”
Last year’s Madden NFL 13 shipped for both Wii U and Wii.
Madden may not be the only EA Sports franchise to not come to Wii U this year. FIFA 14 has been confirmed thus far only for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
