Wii U Owners Don’t Want to Buy Assassin’s Creed, According to Ubisoft

By   /   Aug 19, 2014

Early on Ubisoft supported Wii U with Exclusive game ZombiU which didn’t perform as well as Ubisoft hoped and since then the company hasn’t shown much interest in releasing franchises like Assassin’s Creed on Nintendo’s Wii U.

Recently announced Assassin’s Creed Rogue will launch on PS3, Xbox 360 and Assassin’s Creed Unity will be made available for PS4, Xbox One and PC with no mention of a Wii U version whatsoever.

Ubisoft CEO Ac explained in a recent interview, why the Wii U won’t be getting the next Assassin’s Creed game.

In addition he also went on to say what they think Wii U owners are more interested in Just Dance:

“It’s very simple. What we see is that Nintendo customers don’t buy Assassin’s Creed. Last year, we sold in very small numbers.”
“What we see is that they are very interested in Just Dance, very interested by other kinds of games. So what we are trying to do is to focus more on the types of games they are interested in.”

When questioned about the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U he added:

“[Watch Dogs] is coming to Wii U. It will be the only mature game we publish on it.”

From his comments it is obvious that the company does not see themselves making a profit by releasing games like Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell on Wii U and are planning to shift their focus for the platform to games like Just Dance.

The console has struggled to find some solid ground since it was released and things are not looking up so far as strong third party developer support is lacking.
