Peter Moore has publicly apologised for April Fools tweets sent out by the official DICE Frostbite account that mocked the Wii U.
MCV yesterday reported that Frostbite joked that it had added support for Wii U “since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform”.
The tweets have since been removed and now EA COO Peter Moore has said sorry to Nintendo.
“Our apologies to partners @NintendoAmerica & fan @FrostbiteEngine ’s poor attempt at April Fools not condoned by EA : unacceptable/stupid,” he wrote.
In 2011 EA’s then boss John Riccitiello took to the E3 stage to front EA’s commitment to Wii U. However, after poor sales of launch titles such as Mass Effect 3 and Need for Speed, it soon became clear that the relationship was struggling – despite public protestations to the contrary.
In January an EA insider claimed that Nintendo “was dead” to EA shortly after the Wii U’s launch.
