The creative director of "Watch Dogs," Jonathan Morin, has recently told Eurogamer that the Wii U version of the game has been put on "pause." He clarified that the game has not been canceled, but it has been put on hold while the team focuses on building the game for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. Once the development is done for these games, which are due out May 27th, they will start again on the Wii U build. He did say that there is still a possibility that the Wii U version will be out this year.
Here is what he said during the interview with Eurogamer:
"It's been paused, which means delayed. There were some very talented programers working on it and, when we started to point at the things we needed to fix, we needed those guys and their experience. It was a logical choice to say - let's get those people, let's pause the Wii U thing, let's make sure the experience is where we wanted to be."
It sounds like the Wii U version is still coming out. It is odd that they stopped developing the game for the Wii U to focus on the other versions. In turn, they are just further hurting the sales for the Wii U version of the game ... which is something that Ubisoft complains about a lot. So instead of trying to give it a boost, they have determined it would be better to further hurt it ... I guess so they can continue complaining about the poor sales. Way to go Ubisoft ...
