I wonder if the game didn't sell as anticipated on the other platforms and they don't feel like they can make any sort of profit on Wii U either so they're just giving up.

Or they just don't give a shit either way. Whichever one.

I´m on the forum where the head of the team is talking, and he said that the game is"already profitable", also he said VGChartz is a joke where people just take the data out of their asses, that with better words, but I guess that is another story.

So are Wii U owners gonna get a refund considering they funded the game for PS4/XB1 lol

It was not a Kickastarter but another way of crowfunding, there is no way to know how much of those people were wiiu owners, but the fact is Nintendo fans were the comunity that support them the most, tired with PC. And on its web they had a chartz showing the ratio of interest in every console, and WiiU has been the first all the time. So it has to be tons of WiiU owners that funded the project along with other (mostly PC), and now they have nothing :D

nope, because companies aren't that cool/respectful/whatever, sucks but those people got screwed over

 

"...WiiU isn't your only platform then you wouldn't be buying it for that console anyway."

actually I have a PS4 but I've been waiting for Project Cars on Wii U, not PS4

 

though I admit I'm probably an extreme minority, I was still looking forward to the Wii U version from the start, and with this, it's just one piece of bad news after another. It should have just released with no problems, no drama, but instead people get this crap. It's a reaaaalll bummer, I hate when companies make promises and talk up a big game but don't follow through with them. It's your choice on what platforms you release it on, but do things better from the start and/or figure a way to right things if some catastrophe happened and you absolutely can't keep your promises or whatever. It's a really simple concept IMO *shrug*

It's been riding high in the charts. Consecutive No1s in the UK and I believe the PC version has done well too.

I think it's more, they don't feel at this stage there is any point devoting lots of additional manpower to a Wii U version that'd likely sell tens of thousands.

For all the people saying Lawsuit. Nobody paid ANY money towards a Wii U version of the game. Anybody investing money in this was investing to GET MONEY BACK.

And what do you think you're doing?

Not one comment you made was remotely on topic.

Nope i didnt forget about him. I didnt see Hynad continuing down that discussion so i left him out. The back and fourth was mostly between you and Arctutus, i felt like that was enough to get the discussion back on track. That is the last I will post on that. Please get back to the topic at hand.
