Watch Dogs on Wii U not canned

by on11 February 2014

Ubisoft claims it is still in development

The mystery of whether Watch Dogs will make release on the Wii U has been at least updated by Ubisoft. The publisher says that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is still in development and it will not be released when the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC versions are released. Instead, it will be released at a later date following the release of the other versions.

“The decision to delay the release of the Wii U version was made in order to focus the limited resources of the development team on the release of the versions that have the broadest possible benefit for both the customers and Ubisoft,” said a Ubisoft spokesperson.

The rumors that the Wii U version had been canceled began to gain momentum once it disappeared from Nintendo’s release schedule. It would seem, however, that Ubisoft is committed to a Wii U version of Watch Dogs. It is a question of how long it will wait after the other versions are released. We suspect that it will depend on how many resources Ubisoft can put on the Wii U version after the release on the other platforms as the team transitions to the post-launch DLC that is expected for the game.
