The lights are on
Update: Ubisoft has confirmed that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs will come later than the other versions (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC).
“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,” CEO Yves Guillemot said during today's financial call.
Ubisoft has pinned Watch Dogs to a first quarter 2014 release. The news comes from the company’s third quarter earnings announcement.
“Fiscal 2014-15 will see an exceptional games line-up, with the release of five major titles including Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs, which is scheduled for release in the first fiscal quarter,” CEO Yves Guillemot writes. The publisher hasn't spoken since the delay about which platforms on which the game will appear.
Ubisoft will be holding a conference call to discuss sales later today. For more on the company’s down third quarter, read up on our recent coverage.
Our TakeThis puts to bed some of the concern about Watch Dogs, but we’ll be eagerly listening to hear if Ubisoft discusses the platforms for the title. As of now, there have been no announced changes.
