Warner Bros. ‘committed’ to the Nintendo NX

To be fair they support the Wii U with LEGO

Speaking to VentureBeat, WB Interactive Entertainment’s David Haddad seems initially supportive of the NX, stating, “We have great relationships with all the console platforms. We believe we play a role in each of them. What I saw with the announcements that were made at the show – I’m fairly bullish about the console cycle, about gamers spending time on them and finding great content, about publishers being able to find returns on increasing investments in that space. We’re constantly deciding how to navigate that, but supporting them is not a question for us.”

Unlike Ubisoft and EA who will probably turn and run at the first sign of trouble on the NX (if there’s trouble), WB has a decent track record of still putting out games on the Wii U. Sure it’s mostly LEGO related (LEGO Force Awakens is even set to arrive next week on the platform), but that’s better than nearly every other third-party, where support has basically been non-existent for years.

Haddad also touches on other facets of the company in the full interview, yet as great as WB sounds in the interview, they have a long way to go in terms of building trust with their audience. Between outright dropping support of their games on multiple platforms, and filling their titles to the brim with Season Passes, DLCs, and microtransactions on top of premium priced purchases, they’ve overtaken the likes of Activision and EA in many people’s minds.
