Electronic Arts revealed it has no games in development for Wii U, Senior Engineer hammers point home by stating the "WiiU is crap".
Nintendo has not been doing well recently, with sales falling short of goals and a new marketing strategy set to launch, EA dealt them another blow today when they stated they have no developers working on future titles for the console. Though EA was a launch partner for the WiiU, and released versions of Mass Effect 3, Fifa 13 and Need For Speed Most Wanted, they have gone back on their commitment to Nintendo and stated no further games from them are in the works.
Like any good corp-speech though, EA followed up their announcement by saying they have not ruled out working with Nintendo in the future. That was before Bob Summerwill, a senior engineer for EA, responded to an article tweeted out about the issue:
Summerwill has since deleted the tweets, but thanks to IGN we have screen caps of his comments. He has yet to respond to inquiries about the tweets, but we'll update with any official reply if it comes.

Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
