April Fools jokes are widely accepted in gaming industry, but the official Frostbite Twitter account has taken it too far and forced EA COO Peter Moore to apologize.
Early on Tuesday, the official Frostbite Twitter account posted a series of tweets making fun of Nintendo's Wii U.
"Frostbite will power #HalfLife3, coming out summer 2014! #WiiU exclusive," read one Tweet.
"Frostbite now runs on the #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform, our renderer is now optimized for Mario and Zelda," the account added, making fun of the power difference between Wii U and its contenders: Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The tweets were removed shortly after and Peter Moore tweeted an apology to Nintendo and fans. "Our apologies to partners @NintendoAmerica & fan," he said. "@FrostbiteEngine's poor attempt at April Fools not condoned by EA: unacceptable/stupid."
