Tiger Woods 14 not likely for Wii U

It’s looking increasingly unlikely that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 will come to the Wii U. The franchise had done incredibly well on Nintendo’s previous home console, the Wii. Tiger Woods for Wii was the best reviewed version of the game and sold incredibly well thanks to the intuitive Wii remote. Kotaku contacted EA to find out why they’re not bringing the latest instalment to Wii U. Here’s their vague response.

“We’re currently focused on delivering a great Tiger Woods PGA TOUR experience for our fans on the Xbox 360 and PS3, where we have a great opportunity to connect fans to the real world of golf and each other. We don’t have any further platform announcements at this time.”

games are budgeted and prepped years in advance. it's not surprising Wii U is missing out on some games this year

Golf fans who are also swingers do not own WiiUs.

Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

Shocking it's struggling to even get games that's on every platform under the sun.

Personally I don't care.

So uh, is Need for Speed EA's last Wii U title?

Very possibly.

FIFA is the big question and if that doesn't come that will be a huge news.

People who want FIFA already buy it on their wanted systems and will be the people to move to powerful hardware if their to move at all.
WiiU will sell by Nintendo games; thats just how it is. Everything else is just bonuses for the userbase; if they want those games that is.

Dreamcast'd.


Sounds like Nintendo needs to do their own realistic sport sim lineup like Sega did.

Does NoA even talk with third-parties?

Can one courageous journalist go to NoA and ask what the fuck is going on with third-parties and Wii U?

I dont like EA games, but this announcement on top of multiple others is becoming increasingly concerning.

Isn't EA Fitness a big game for EA? I don't think you should write them off just yet.

Maybe Mario Golf can fill the void. Peter Moore really digging that knife in deep.

e. How about Sonic Golfing All Stars?
So, the big question mark now is FIFA 14. That would be a nail in the European Wii U coffin.
You mean FIFA 13, right?

Funny, I thought they pulled his name off and changed it to some tournament name.

EDIT: I used to have that Stella avatar, it's great.

How does this stand out over FIFA? I mean really.
Bring out Mario Soccer; embrace what they are whilst meeting the sport.

You can't beat the competition by trying to copy them at their best. Its impossible.
Nintendo has to embrace its best.

If Tiger Woods isn't releasing on the WiiU I don't have high hopes for any other 3rd party games.

While I love Next Level Games' Mario Strikers Charged more than most people, it would not fill the hole left by a lack of FIFA (for example).

Nintendo mumbles, but no one is listening cuz those crickets are chirping mighty loud in the Wii-U sales corner
