Poor sales on Most Wanted cited
If you want to play Need for Speed: Rivals, you’re going to need something other than a PS Vita or a Wii U, as the game will not be coming to those platforms.
Rivals Creative Director, Craig Sullivan, told The Sixth Axis that despite the extra work they put into the Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, it didn’t sell that well. The same was the case for the Vita version, he added.
“[Rivals] is going onto new hardware, and you have to work out where you focus your efforts. The 200 people working on this game are only capable of making so much, and doing so many different versions of the game, so we had to go with where we think the biggest audience will be for the game, and that’s where we are,” said Sullivan.
So, if you’re wanting in on Rivals, it’s coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 19, 2013. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow days after.
