X-bit Labs writes EA Montreal will reduce its focus on the Nintendo Wii platform, instead game studio will focus more on creating HD blockbuster titles. EA Montreal has several popular Wii games in its repertoire, including SSX Blur, Boogie, Boogie Superstar, Skate It, Need for Speed: Nitro and Spore Hero.
“The Wii market is a little bit unpredictable these days. We are going to see how Christmas is going to do and while with the Wii we have had very successful titles, we are going to focus on big, blockbuster-type titles. It doesn't mean that we are going to abandon the Wii, but as a studio we want to be ready for new challenges. […] [We plan to refocus the studio on] action titles and HD-quality products,” said Alain Tascan, the general manager of EA Montreal, in an interview with Edge Online web-site.
