Rumors had it that the Wii version of The Grinder had been scrapped after the title saw a major redesign. Thankfully that is not the case. And according to High Voltage Software’s Chief Creative Officer, Eric Nofsinger , The Grinder is indeed still in development for Wii and will be remaining a first person shooter.
“The expansion of Grinder to 360 and PS3 and its subsequent change in gameplay and perspective has been somewhat misinterpreted as a universal change across all platforms. We still genuinely love the Wii and would ideally like to see a publishing partner pick up both a FPS Wii version and a third-person action version specific to the 360 and PS3.”
Currently, The Grinder has no publisher on any of platforms. High Voltage Software has a good relationship with SEGA, but SEGA is a bit skepticle releasing another M rated game on Wii. Your guess on what publisher might pick it up is as good as mine.
The Grinder is set for Halloween 2011, so they still have plenty of time to find themselves a publisher.
