    Ubisoft have once again delayed the launch of Watch Dogs, this time only for the Wii U, presumably so the target release date can be met for the other consoles.

    Can't say I blame them, though last year when Rayman Legends was ready for the Wii U, Ubisoft intentionally delayed it so that the game could be released simultaneously across all consoles. Oh well, if you're a Nintendo gamer, sucks to be U (and me, darn it!).

    Watch Dogs? More like "Watch this space" Dogs.

    So everybody who has also another console besides the Wii U won`t buy the Wii U version. Then Ubisoft will complain that nobody baught the wii u game and will say that in the future they won`t realease multiplattform titles on the Wii U because of the poor sales of watchdog. It is so ridicilous.
    They already messed up with rayman legengs. I would have bought the game for the wii U but because of the delay I pirated the game for the PS3.

    The sad thing is, when you're the platform with the worst prospects, you're going to be the last priority. Looks like all Wii U owners can do is just watch, dogs.

    Yeah, I don't think that's Ubisoft's fault.

    What they really mean is we are delaying the announcement that we have canceled it on the wii-u because we are trying not to piss off Nintendo and its fan-base. Lets be honest, delayed for 5 months because of black flag i get. However, This delay seems to suggest to me that the wii-u version is either going to be extremely buggy with no fix or the online gameplay wont work or simply (and more likely) that it has been canned.

    That's a relief, I was a bit worried that it was going to come out near mario kart 8's release.

    If they cancel it then screw Ubisoft us Wii U owners will move on and give our money to a more deserving company. If they dont cancel it then hopefully they put more effort into it so it will be the definitive version. (unlikely, but one can hope)

    if you think about it

    the ps3/360 going to be close to the same game (in game play)
    as well as
    xbone/ps4/pc are also going to be close to the same game (in game play)
    but
    the wiiu version will be using the gamepad for many things that the other system do not have (unless ps4 get vita second screen support and Xbox SmartGlass support)

    so they want to make sure it works right and will not be buggy

    After Ubisoft, there aren't many more "deserving companies" left for us to give money to, IMO.

    Well, shit. Wii U is the only console I have with me at university, so I was planning on buying it for that. Oh well, I'll wait until the semester is over and just get it for Xbox 360.

    Rayman is done for Wii U, decides to go multiplat with it and delays it so they all get the same release date. Wii U audience was pissed, Ubisoft were like "Fuck you! It's more important that all consoles get a fair chance".
    Watch_dogs is done (?) for all platforms except Wii U, decides NOT to delay it for anyone except Wii U.... Isn't it important with a fair chance any more? U be soft Ubisoft. *pissed*

    Completely unsurprised, and I won't be surprised if they flat out cancel the game on Wii U. No point in trying to push out a Game that's only gonna sell a few thousand copies on that platform.

    Except it's not going to be unique for the Wii U, since Second Screen/Xbox SmartGlass/a companion app for smartpones for the PC version have all been confirmed by Ubisoft.

    Second Screen is a Sony thing, where you can connect a Vita/Smartphone via the Playstation app to your PS3/PS4 and use that for the extra controls, it's not a physical extra screen.
