Gone Home No Longer in Development for Wii U

In fact, The Fullbright Company isn't working on console ports at all.

The hit PC indie game Gone Home is no longer in development for Wii U or any other consoles, The Fulbright Company has confirmed.

In a livestream hosted by Kinda Funny Games, The Fulbright Company co-founder Steve Gaynor explained: "At this point, unfortunately, I have to acknowledge that Gone Home for console is not actively in development any longer.

"That deal with Majesco has sadly come to an end. So, we don’t really know what that means for Gone Home for console for us. In the immediate term, it’s no longer a going thing."

Whether or not it will ever come to Wii U remains up in the air, but right now, it doesn't look like Nintendo fans will get a chance to play the story-heavy adventure game anytime soon.

That blows. I was really looking forward to that.

Sad. The game goes on sale regularly on Steam so not all is lost, and I'm definitely looking forward to Tacoma.

I understand why this game isn't going to be on the Wii U anymore (especially after the recent sales charts posted on Twitter by Emily Rogers), but I don't understand why they're waiving off console support at all for the time being. Maybe they don't think a $20 hour-long walking simulator can sell on consoles these days. *shrugs*

Majesco, the company that was going to do all the ports, is having...let's say some serious money issues.

Yep. As far as I know, Fullbright wasn't involved with the porting to consoles. It was all Majesco and their (I think now defunct?) Midnight City label.

Majesco is sad. The Zumba and Cooking Mama well has run dry.

On the bright side, at least the reason it's not coming to Wii u isn't because of, you know, the wii u. This go around, it's not going to ANY home console.
