It was previously reported that the peripheral manufacturer revealed the gaming system will be released on November 18, but one of its executives has now said that the information was misinterpreted.
"Performance Designed Products is aware of the recent rumours posted alleging that PDP inadvertently 'leaked' the official release date of the upcoming Nintendo Wii U gaming system during a trade presentation," PDP senior vice president of sales and marketing William Otte told Kotaku.
"To be clear, PDP has no knowledge whatsoever of the official Wii U release date, and thus it is not possible for PDP to have 'leaked' this information.
"PDP simply gave a presentation of our fall line of gaming accessories to our customers at a trade event in which we stated that our Wii U accessories would be there at launch.
"Later in the presentation, we stated that our Epic Mickey 2 accessories are currently planned to be in stores by November 18. PDP has no knowledge as to whether this is the official Wii U release date or not, and thus nothing was 'leaked'."
Nintendo is expected to announce an official launch date for the Wii U on September 13 following the distribution of press invites scheduled for that date.
