When "Battlefield 3" for Wii U was cancelled last year, Nintendo fans were extremely upset about the situation. It's believed that the game as cancelled due to the developers making a decision to launch "Battlefield 4" for the Wii U instead. On March 8, a teaser for the 4th game in the series showed up on IGN's website. Will this be EA's first shooter game for Nintendo's Wii U system?
When March 26 hits, everybody will find out which systems the new game will launch on. It's expected that the game will most likely hit the Xbox and PlayStation systems just like the last 3 games did, but nothing has been confirmed about a possible Wii U version. Back in January, John Riccitiello, CEO of Electronic Arts, stated that he believes that the Wii U isn't a next-generation console. Even though he made this statement, it's believed that the system will still receive EA's support even though it may be less than what the PS4 and next Xbox receives.
Earlier this month, EA released "SimCity" which is a relaunch of the 1989 classic. The launch was a failure and EA has received a lot of criticism for it's DRM which requires the gamer to be online at all times. If the internet is disconnected, you can't play the game. Some believe that EA as a company is out of touch with consumers because of this major issue. Back in 2012, EA won the "Worst Company in America" Award. The award was carried out by Consumerist.com which let users choose which company in America is the worst.
Will EA make a rebound with "Battlefield 4" coming this year? It's possible if they don't drop support for PC or Nintendo systems. If EA can make a big return with timeless gameplay, they will no longer be in trouble as a company. On March 26, gamers can decide if EA will be releasing a classic.
