The Wii U version of Project Cars has been cancelled, Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed.
We recently reported that the studio was struggling to get the game running smoothly on Nintendo's console, hitting around 23fps at the time (60fps on other platforms). The team were hoping that Nintendo might announce some new hardware at E3, but, as those of you who haven't been living under a rock for the last month will know, there was nothing.
Studio head Ian Bell told Nintendo Life that the Wii U just can't handle the game. "The official line is that we're waiting an announcement from Nintendo on new hardware," said Bell. "As of now pCARS is simply too much for the Wii U."
We've contacted Bandai Namco for confirmation.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were also cancelled during development, but we were holding out hope that Slightly Mad would find a way of getting the game working on Wii U. Alas, it was not to be.
