Ubisoft have apparently confirmed that its highly anticipated action adventure title Watch Dogs is still scheduled to be released on the Wii U. Earlier today Ubisoft commented on the state of Watch Dogs on Twitter and reconfirmed the game is still in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is currently being polished by the development team.
Last month, reports began circling of GameStop stores in Italy and the U.S. canceling pre-orders for Watch Dogs on Wii U. Ubisoft confirmed with Polygon at the time that the Wii U version had not been canceled, but Nintendo’s third quarter financial report published on Jan. 30 did not list Watch Dogs as a Wii U title coming this fiscal year. Ubisoft again confirmed that the game was slated to launch in the first quarter of Ubisoft and Nintendo’s fiscal year 2014-2015, which begins in April.
Update: It should be noted that the original source which Polygon linked to, Reuters, doesn’t mention the Wii U version.
Now I’m just getting confused. Is it coming or not…Is it possible it was never actually coming to Wii U and when people started pre-ordering it Ubisoft realized oh…we better actually make it for Wii U to cause people actually want it on the Wii U…
