Project Cars Not Running Well on the Wii U – Slightly Mad Studios

Project Cars a next-gen sim racing game was announced for many platforms including the Wii U. Unsurprisingly the Wii U version isn’t out yet and we may have a reason as to why that is.

The developer Slightly Mad Studios posted on their forums about the true reason why the version hasn’t been released yet.

“I can’t say too much but we’re awaiting E3 with baited breath. Don’t read wrongly into that… OK I’ll come clean. At the moment we’re running at about 23FPS on the WiiU. We’re awaiting/hoping for more of a hardware announcement at E3…

“Honestly, unless we really cut the looks back I think we’re looking to Nintendo’s next console. 720p yes. I suppose if they don’t announce something at E3 or soon after we will have a go at it.

“We could reach a fairly solid 30FPS but it might take a hell of a lot of work. On the other hand, about halfway through us finishing, Nintendo might announce a new console (I have zero knowledge on this BTW but I’ve heard ‘rumours’). Our work might just be the best thing that ever hit that new console in the driving sim genre.

“So we’re playing a waiting game at the moment and yes, economics do come in to it.”

They clearly hint that Nintendo may announce a new console and they have halted development to see if Nintendo does that or not.
