Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs for the Nintendo Wii U was delayed. Some people thought that it had been cancelled due to the Wii U’s unpopularity, but Ubisoft denies this. Anyway, the game’s release date is May 27th, with the Wii U version coming at some later date. Despite the delay Ubisoft has come forward and stated that the game was not been killed off for the Wii U.
The game’s senior producer, Dominic Guay says that the game is still alive, but they don’t have a ship date for it yet. Guay said, ”We don’t have a specific ship date for it yet so it’s considered within the year. So we’re going to look at that and we’re going to let people know as soon as we figure out an exact date for it.”
Apparently the delay is because the game is not being developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Ubisoft’s studio in Bucharest is working on it and they want to make sure the GamePad is used to its full advantage. “The Wii U came along at some point in our production, so it planned through for it, and now to a certain extent we wanted to be ambitious with it, be able to go full-on and make full use of the platform. That’s why we’re taking more time, but it’s being worked on so that’s good.”
At least you know they are focused on quality. It will be here before you know it.
