EA Sports' Madden NFL 25 will not be released on the Wii U, a company representative has confirmed with Nintendo World Report. This will mark the first time the series has skipped over Nintendo platforms since 1991.
"We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013," the spokesperson said. "However, we have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future."
Last year's Madden NFL 13 shipped for both the Wii U and Wii.
Madden may not be the only EA Sports franchise to not come to the Wii U this year. FIFA 14 has been confirmed thus far only for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata acknowledged to investors recently that some third-party studios believe the Wii U is not powerful enough and thus are not supporting it. He explained that Nintendo must do more to dispel this "misconception."
The Wii U has underperformed, selling 3.45 million units worldwide since launch, and only 400,000 systems so far in 2013.
