EA COO Apologizes for Frostbite Wii U April Fool’s Joke
Peter Moore apologizes for tweets sent out yesterday that cut a little too deep.
Yesterday, several game developers and publishers sent out April Fool’s videos and news to reinforce the light-hearted side gaming. Unfortunately, EA made a royal mess of the whole deal when it hopped on the bandwagon, as the Frostbite Engine Twitter proclaimed the engine to be arriving to the Wii U. It then went on to tweet about Half Life 3 coming to the Wii U as an exclusive and using quantum entanglement to fix its “net code”.
Needless to say, especially given EA’s spotty support for the console in the past year, few were amused which lead to the tweets being deleted. EA COO Peter Moore recently took to Twitter to apologize for the same. “Our apologies to partners Nintendo America and fan[s].
“Frostbite Engine’s poor attempt at April Fools not condoned by EA. Unacceptable/stupid.”
What did you think of the tweets? Too offensive for an important market of gamers or just innocent, albeit overbearing, fun? Let us know what you think in the comments.
