Following in the footsteps of games like Metro: Last Light, Ghost Recon Online for the Wii U has ceased development.
Theo Sanders, a producer on Ghost Recon Online, confirmed the decision earlier today.
As of right now, the entire Ghost Recon team is focused on the PC version only. The Wii U version is on hold. If in the future we have an opportunity to address it again, we’ll make future announcements. But as of right now we’re focused completely on the PC version.
Although it won’t be heading to Nintendo’s new console anytime soon, Sanders didn’t rule out the possibility of the game reaching other consoles.
It’s hard to say how the future will go for Ghost Recon Online, I think in the future as different platforms evolve towards service models and towards being really online-driven, community-driven platforms, then we’ll definitely be looking at what our options are.
Ghost Recon Online was one of the first games shown for the Wii U, back at E3 2011.
What do you think this means for Nintendo, are they losing third-party support before the system has even launched?
