UbiSoft’s upcoming techno thriller Watch Dogs has been delayed on Wii U. The new IP project remains on time for other hardware, including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in addition to current generation consoles, plus PC.
During their earnings call, UbiSoft did not specify the length of the delay. In a statement to VideoGamer.com, a representative stated:
“We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft.”
It’s unclear what this means, whether developers are being shuffled onto the current-gen versions for the crunch or refining other editions. Their statement is also slippery with regards to Wii U consumers, as if they’re not customers (?).
In the past, UbiSoft famously delayed Rayman Legends on Wii U to release it at the same time with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
