Just the other day we reported that EA has stated that they had no titles planned for the Nintendo Wii U console at the moment, which we have to say is pretty bad news for the Japanese company especially since EA is a pretty big publisher. However while EA might not be throwing their weight and support behind the Wii U, Ubisoft on the other hand has taken a different stance, showing their support for the Wii U instead and expressing their confidence that the console will go on to be a success. Considering that the company has offered titles such as Assassin’s Creed 3 and Watch Dogs on the Wii U, plus the exclusive ZombiU, we guess it’s not surprising that Ubisoft is seeing something in the Wii U that perhaps other publishers and developers aren’t.
Speaking to Games Industry, an Ubisoft spokesperson made a statement saying, “As with any new console, it takes some time to grow an established base. Ubisoft has a varied and high-quality line-up for Wii U, with more big titles on the way including Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Splinter Cell Blacklist. We’re confident that this will help in continuing to attract gamers to the Wii U system and that Nintendo will take steps to ensure that the Wii U is successful in the market.” What do you guys think? Does the Wii U really just need some time to grow into its own, or do you think that the console is a flop?
