Need For Speed Is Most Wanted On Wii U, But Is It Coming?

Posted by Damien McFerran

Criterion refuse to confirm or deny existence of Wii U version

Need for Speed: Most Wanted is shaping up pretty nicely at the moment, following on neatly from Criterion's previous effort, the critically acclaimed Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. We've been crossing our fingers (and toes) that this new law-breaking installment is Wii U-bound, but there's been no solid confirmation as yet.

However, Criterion is refusing to deny rumours completely, which could be taken as a positive thing if you're an optimisitic person.

Speaking to, producer Leanne Loombe had this to say when asked about a possible Wii U version:

We're not talking about Wii U at the moment.

Interesting use of words, there. "At the moment" could well mean that a Wii U edition is in development. Keep those limbs crossed, people.

I really hope so. If it comes, I will buyt it, If it does not, no money from me EA. Make it happen, I miss Criterion and still consider "Burnout Paradise" the definitive arcade racing game of all time. With wheeled cars, I mean, "F-Zero GX" wins in the best arcade racer without wheels category.

Make it happen please. I don't want to get the PC version only to find out that I'm forced to use a goddamned browser just to launch a freaking game. Single player no less.

Please Criterion, make it happen! I actually expect this to be announced very soon but I really want this game so a confirmation would be nice!

@Koto Nice to see another brethren in the refusal to buy stupidly-adopted PC ports!

Yeah, make it happen Criterion. Despite appearing to have fallen into the middle of EA's cycle of destroying once-great video game creators, Criterion is still making some of the best racing games of all time. It would be nice to have a version of the game that does not use EA's stupid DRM policies and one that I can play alone.

Wait, we are talking about a remake? Most Wanted exists and Hot Pursuit was out years ago.

I have seen a full presentation last week. They transformed Need for Speed in Burnout.
I was ready for this from Criterion that's way if this game isn't on Wii U i think it's still a shame it would be released for any other console.
