A Measly 5% of Developers Say They're Working on Wii U Games

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

It’s safe to say that the Wii U hasn’t been the roaring success Nintendo hoped it would be, and the Games Developers Conference’s 2016 State of the Industry report shows that the outlook for the console looks very bleak indeed.

A survey of over 2,000 games devs shows that a mere five per cent are working on Wii U titles. In comparison, 27 per cent say they’re working on games for the PS4, and 23 per cent are on board with the Xbox One. That’s not all. Only two per cent of respondents said that they’re involved with 3DS projects, with a measly one per cent currently building Nintendo NX games.

Unsurprisingly, there’s a lot more action on the VR front now than there was last year, with 16 per cent of the devs involved in the survey said to be currently working on a virtual reality game. Last year, this figure stood at seven per cent. The PC is still king, however, with 52 per cent of respondents working on a game for the platform, while 44 per cent say they're working on smartphone and tablet titles. [IGN]
