Unconfirmed, but it aint looking so hot...

According to Jason Schreier's reply to his own article on Kotaku:

We heard from a tipster about a month ago that the Wii U version had been "postponed indefinitely." We reached out to Sega, and they denied it. I'll let you guys fill in the blanks there. :)


Also Amazon no longer lists a Wii U version of the game.


:/

Clearly a ploy by Nintendo to inflate the Wii U software Metacritic average!

Everything surrounding this game makes me sad.

Precisely. The images in my mind as to what this game could have been on Wii U are still there, and there they will remain. Untouched, pristine, in all their Aliens glory.

That said a contractor is making the Wii U version.

I wonder whether the Wii U version was ever actually in development or if Pitchford just talked out of his ass when he praised that particular version of the game.

So which should we expect?

Polished version released in a couple of months with more content and much better visuals + design?

Or no release?

And which is better??

I couldn't blame them if they did. I liked Borderlands 1 and their Halo PC port but other then those Gearbox hasn't really made me go wow they're amazing. Even Borderlands 1 I got really freaking bored halfway through.

It just pisses me off to see how this game was pimped and how when released it looked almost nothing like the demos of it.

I see one of two possibilities:

1) The Wii U version wasn't ready and Sega is sufficiently scared at Wii U software performance to not want to throw more money into it.

2) The Wii U version wasn't ready and Sega is sufficiently scared at A:CM performance/quality to not want to throw more money into it.

(or both, really)
