Do they still make new games for the Wii or are they focusing on the next one?

I know that what usually happens to a console is that when the next console is announced, companies stop making games for the old one and start to focus their development on the upcoming console. The only times that doesn't happen is for consoles that won their gens, ie: PS2, DS, etc. but that obviously doesn't apply here. So is it true for the Wii, and if so, why do you think that is?

I honestly don't know the answer, I've been out of the country for a few months and haven't really been keeping up with things. IMO it would be a shame to just give up at this point but I really don't know how the landscape has changed in the last few months so I might just be crazy.

There are still games being made for the Wii; Dragon Quest X and Mario Party 9 for example.
But yeah, a lot of focus has shifted to the Wii U.

That's two games though. Two sequels.

Okay, three.

I don't understand why you would take a question about video games so personally.
