To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed that Project CARS for the Wii U has been cancelled. Really, this shouldn't be too surprising given how talk about the Wii U version has been absent for weeks, even months now, even after it has been released on every other platform.

What happens now? Well, you have to wait for Nintendo's next console if you want to play the game on Nintendo hardware.
Despite much perseverance on the Wii U version of Project CARS we will no longer be actively pursuing development on it as the quality does not meet our own high standards nor our intended vision for the title on this platform.

We eagerly look forward to any announcement of further hardware from Nintendo but right now Project CARS is simply too much for Wii U despite our very best efforts.

Apologies to our Nintendo fans out there that have been waiting for further news on this but have no desire to release a product that isn't at the very least comparable with our highest-rated versions on other platforms. We optimistically look forward therefore to what the future may hold.

The studio had wanted to see if Nintendo was going to show anything NX related at E3. They, of course, did not show anything related to their next hardware release. Hey, maybe the Nintendo NX will be powerful enough that Slightly Mad Studios will just skip the first game and release Project CARS 2 on the NX instead.
