Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs is certainly shaping up to be a very promising game in both gameplay and visuals, at least from what we’ve seen so far. The game is expected to see a release on the 27th of May for a variety of platforms, such as the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, the Xbox One, and the PC. The game will also be released on the Nintendo Wii U although that launched has since been delayed, but not cancelled, thankfully.
Now with the game ready for launch on the platforms mentioned above, it looks like Ubisoft will be turning their attention onto the Wii U version of the game, which as it stands has been pegged for a release in the fall of 2014. This has been confirmed by the game’s creative director, Jonathan Morin, who spoke to the folks at Red Bull.
Morin states that the team had been previously occupied with other matters but will be turning their attention to the Wii U version now. “We wanted to finish all the platforms that we are currently shipping. We needed those guys to get [the shipping versions] finished. The good news now is that they’re all fully focused on the Wii U version, making sure it gets the attention it deserves to make it the best version it can be.”
Unfortunately Morin did not provide a specific date or timeframe in which we can expect the game, but assuming the fall release is still in the cards, perhaps we can look forward to the game around then, assuming that development of the Wii U version goes according to plan.
