After basically confirming the cancellation of racing sim Project are on Wii U, developer Slightly Mad Studios officially confirmed the cancellation for the Wii U port.

Creative director of the studio, Andy Tudor said that the port “did not meet our high standards” but he did apologize to Wii U owners.

“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,” Tudor explained.

“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 we 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.”

So there you have it, the reasoning the port is pulled. This is just another third-party bust for Nintendo due to hardware limitations. Stay tuned to Gamespresso for all your Project Cars and Wii U information.
