Writing on Twitter this weekend, Microsoft confirmed it has nothing to announce regarding any of its games outside of Minecraft coming to Wii U.

This comes after a tweet from the Microsoft Studios account suggested that the company might be open to the idea of bringing Xbox One's Rare Replay to Nintendo's console.

"We appreciate all your suggestions!" Microsoft said. "However, we have no information of any games coming to the Wii U other than Minecraft at this time."

As for the initial tweet that started all of this, here's what happened. On December 7, someone asked if, in addition to Minecraft, Microsoft might bring Rare Replay to Wii U. Microsoft responded by saying anyone who's interested in that should take it up with the Microsoft-owned UK developer Rare.

This led some to believe Microsoft was open to the idea of Rare Replay one day coming to Wii U. Interestingly, Microsoft's statement ends by saying it has nothing to announce "at this time," which leaves open the possibility of some announcement being made down the road.

Minecraft for Wii U launches on December 17. Microsoft acquired the Minecraft franchise and developer Mojang in 2014 for the price of $2.5 billion.
