Ubisoft gives 'Watch Dogs' release window, Wii U version delayed

See also

We haven't heard much from Ubisoft regarding Watch Dogs, the developer's upcoming open-world title, since the game's delay late last year. One European retailer did list what may be the game's ship date, but no official word from the developer has backed this up. Ubisoft released their quarterly report earlier today, where CEO Yves Guillemot let us know the game's launch window.

Fiscal 2014-15 will see an exceptional games line-up, with the release of five major titles including Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs, which is scheduled for release in the first fiscal quarter.

While this is excellent news for most everyone interested in this title, today's conference call revealed that the Wii U version has been delayed. We don't currently know how much longer it'll take for Watch Dogs to reach Nintendo's console, or any of the circumstances that may have led to this delay. This announcement comes only a few weeks after one Italian retailer had briefly removed the Wii U version's listing from their website. It seems a bit odd, seeing as how Ubisoft has stated that they began working on this version before Sony and Microsoft's new hardware. We'll have more information as it develops.
