Nintendo seems to keep taking hits lately and a recent announcement from game developers stated that Wii U is not ready for Project CARS. It mounted on the number of punches the platform has been receiving while the strikes are famously missing both its competitors PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Slightly Mad Studios, publishers of the Project CARS franchise, have just released a statement to the public in which they disappointingly claim that their game will not be supported on Wii U, simply because the console does not have the proper power to handle the hardcore racing simulator.
According to studio president, Ian Bell, the game developer has been hard at work for the past two months in order to find a way to incorporate Project CARS into proper optimization for Wii U, but have waved the white flag and given up. In spite of their best efforts, the Nintendo console is not equipped for a version of the game that might do the title justice.
However, things might not be over yet between Slightly Mad Studios and Nintendo, with the former looking forward to future hardware that might bring them back together. As reported earlier this month, the game console maker will be developing Nintendo NX, set to take a new approach to gaming and hopefully be able to compete with other last-gen consoles.
Slightly Mad Studios hoped that some news or small presentation would have been provided at E3, but sadly, Nintendo did not deliver any new information, so are now forced to take this bit of loss and run with it.
The hardcore driving simulator will only be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, still waiting for Nintendo to provide proper hardware that will be able to handle the game.
The only piece of news received about the upcoming Nintendo NX has been speculations about their partnership with AMD, which could hint at a high-end performing processor chip that might just compete with other consoles.
However, Nintendo is keeping silent on the matter, with the only statement released informing the public that news will only become available sometime next year, in 2016.
