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.
