Ubisoft has made an official statement regarding the potential cancellation of “Watch Dogs” on the Wii U. According to a report from GameSpot on Feb. 10, the open-world action-adventure video game is still in development for Nintendo’s high-definition console. However, it won’t be coming out at the same time as the other versions.
Ubisoft restated that “Watch Dogs” is expected to come out in the second quarter of this year (between May and June) for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Wii U players have to wait even longer to get their hands on the software product. The cancellation speculations began to pop up after retailers removed the product listing of “Watch Dogs” on Nintendo’s platform.
The delay is still not a good sign for the console manufacturer. Nintendo has been struggling to sell the Wii U hardware since it launched in 2012. With low software sales, many third-party companies are beginning to abandon support.
“Watch Dogs” encountered some development issues as it was initially set to launch in late 2013. Ubisoft ultimately decide to delay the release of the video game in order to improve on its quality to match the acclaimed “Grand Theft Auto” series.
