No more Worm-ing on the GameCube

Team17, the British-based developer behind the hugely popular Worms franchise have announced that they will no longer be developing titles for Nintendo's GameCube system. The statement was release on the company's own forums. The following was said:

"There's no discrimination, just that there isn't too much retail backing, which is what makes publishers nervous, stops them making agreements to develop GC games etc. I'm certain that W3d is our last GC game since the publishers aren't interested in a cube version of the other game we have in development."

Worrying news indeed, and with EA also canning UEFA Football 2004 and Burnout 3 it isn't looking too rosy on the third party developer front. Abandon ship anyone?
