Wii gets no online third-party games until 2007

25 August 2006
Posted by:

Nintendo WiiTony Hawk’s Downhill Jam for Wii will feature a four-player mode and Activision is attempting to “make everything that’s available in the single-player mode available in the multiplayer one, too.” All that’s known right now is that the mode will be four-player split-screen in nature.

Gamers hoping for an online component, however, are in for bad news, because one isn’t planned. Activision would not say why, but IGN has separately learned from multiple development sources that Nintendo will not release Wii Wi-Fi Connection libraries to third parties until early 2007, which might mean that no third party launch title aside from maybe Ubisoft’s Red Steel will have an online mode.

  • You might remember the original Xbox didn’t have online ready at launch either. But this way Nintendo probably hopes to test their own first-party games online for about two months and perfect whatever online system they have planned at launch the last quarter of 2006.

    Updated: Third-party games that could’ve been online: Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII, Call of Duty 3, Far Cry, and Madden NFL 07.
