The Wii U console from Nintendo has seen a dramatic decrease in terms of third-party support. Sales for the system aren't great, and this is one of the reasons why third-party developers are quickly abandoning the system without any regrets. Today, Ubisoft confirmed that the upcoming Assassin's Creed Rogue will only be coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles. It was also reported today that the upcoming Resident Evil remake will be hitting every system except the Wii U.

The upcoming title from Ubisoft will be hitting store shelves on November 11 and is the fifth main game in the Assassin's Creed series. Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag in the past for Nintendo's latest home console, but sales weren't anywhere close to expectations. Ubisoft clearly sees that Xbox and Playstation consoles are where their biggest fan base is, and they're willing to take advantage of this even if it means ignoring Nintendo consoles altogether.

Luckily, even though Wii U is being ignored by third-party developers, the system is still relevant when it comes to first-party Nintendo games. Everybody in the gaming industry knows that Nintendo develops some of the greatest video games of all time, and with games like Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. coming out for the system later this year, Wii U has a chance to win back third-party developers if sales for the system exceed their expectations.
