Wii U version to launch after other platforms but is still in development, Ubisoft confirms.

In a statement provided to VideoGamer.com following the announcement, a Ubisoft spokesperson said:

"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".

I wonder if the PS3/360 versions are delayed too. It would make sense for them to focus on the PS4/XBO/PC versions after the delay since the other versions were probably guaranteed to be awful anyway.

They must be waiting to see what Nintendo is going to do. No reason to release the game if the Wii U is still failing to sell.

Once the launch hype / chatter on the other versions dies down, they'll cancel it.

I'd be shocked. They want to sell 7+ million copies.

To be clear, that's after the PS4/XB1/PS3/360/PC versions.

So basically, after everyone who wants Watch_Dogs will have already bought it. :-P

At this point, I suspect

WD for all the other: April, before MK8
WD WIIU, released after MK8, June

Could this be a reasonable scenario?

I guess that's the end of Ubi on WiiU, unless they decide to continue publishing Just Dance on it.

Doesn't really matter. How many people are going to pick up another version who would have preferred the Wii U version on the same day? I doubt cancelling it would "anger" that many Wii U owners.

That wouldn't make any sense. If anything, they'd want to release before Mario Kart hits the selfs.

I wonder why this is. The WiiU isn't all that hard to develop for, is it? I mean compared to 360/PS3.

Guessing that once they delayed the game they decided to focus their efforts on the other versions so the Wii U version still isn't completed yet.

Yep, it falls in line with Iwata's thinking too: Family friendly first party games will drive the success of mature third party games on Wii U.

Seems strange they wouldn't release the game at the same time as the other platforms.

I'd be really curious what percentage of Wii U owners even have a PS4 or XB1. Is that information available anywhere, or could it be extrapolated? I imagine WD sales will be low on Wii U regardless, but I agree with the above.
