Watch Dogs Confirmed to Release for Wii U This November
The Wii U port of Watch Dogs has been confirmed by Ubisoft to arrive on November 18 this year in North America, while Europe will receive the game three days later.
The news was originally broken by Ubisoft Mexico who allegedly let slip the announcement a bit too early. A Facebook post announcing the title was soon afterwards taken down but not before the web had gotten a whiff of it. That was followed up by Ubisoft officially making the announcement with a press release.
According to the developer, the Wii U GamePad will allow players to bring up a “detailed and interactive” map of Chicago. Additionally it was noted that the game would support off-TV play.
Watch Dogs was originally planned for a release alongside the rest of the platforms but was then revealed to be delayed to an unannounced date.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained that the extra time would “focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft.”
Even after the release of Watch Dogs in May for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC; there was no suitable information provided by Ubisoft about the Wii U version. It was thought that the port had been scrapped but today it seems like it wasn’t.
This port is being developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, in collaboration with the game’s primary developer, Ubisoft Montreal.
Watch Dogs will soon receive its latest downloadable content pack called Bad Blood. It will arrive on September 23 for Season Pass holders and on September 30 for everyone else.
