SEGA’s executive vice president of marketing, Alan Pritchard, has seemingly revealed a launch window for Nintendo’s new Wii console. When asked if Sonic Generations would be released for the innovative Wii follow up, Pritchard had the following to say:

“The timing just doesn’t work. Generations releases this November, and the Wii U is coming out next spring/summer. I think one of the things we don’t have to do, or reduce where possible, is we don’t want to port games. I think if there’s going to be a Sonic game for the Wii U, it needs to be built from the ground up.”

So there you go, that’s the Wii U launch window according to SEGA’s Alan Pritchard, although there’s always the possibility that PAL territories could get it later on in the year. It certainly won’t be earlier than America, I’ll tell you that.
