They have to announce them before cancelling. Can only think of Aliens (yay!) and Metro that this happened with.

The only ones that were announced and canceled was Alien and Metro. Crysis 3 was said to be running on Wii U but was never officially announced.

Not to mention Aliens got cancelled because of issues inherent to the game itself and its development.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

ITT: Two = many.


In the broader context of the WiiU's nano-scale extant library, yes, two is a lot.

When a game was never intended to come to a console, it doesn't count as a cancellation. I don't think the Wii U has had very many games that were axed, but there have just been a lot of multiplatform games that skipped the Wii U altogether.

Actually, you can bet plenty of games were "planned" to be released on the Wii U, with devs getting ports mostly working on dev kits. EA especially will have done this with a bunch of games. The final decision on finishing them up will have been made on the basis of Wii U sales...which have been terrible.

From a business standpoint, companies really want to release IPs (new and old) early in each consoles life in order to establish the brand. The Wii U has been selling so poorly, month over month, and lost so much momentum, that publishers and developers are not even treating the console as if it has FUTURE promise. That's bad news.

At this point, only indie devs and kickstarter projects seems to be favouring the Wii U -- which is understandable with the lower reqs, less competition and heavy reliance on VC/old titles. Of course, so few low budget games ever pan out, but at least it's something.
