Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed that the Wii U edition of Project CARS has been officially cancelled, claiming that the port did “not meet our high standards.” Director, Andy Tudor, has provided a statement regarding the cancellation below.
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.
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 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.
Project CARS was released May 12 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A sequel was recently announced.
