While Ubisoft’s receptionist won’t confirm or deny a release of Watch Dogs on Wii U, the firm’s product release list does. According to the list, Watch Dogs is set to come to the Wii U in “Spring 2014.” This is alongside the PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of the game. See the list below.
There has been concern over Watch Dogs being cancelled because of an apparent dismissal of the trademark, but that is not the case. The game is currently being polished, while Ubisoft gears up for its Spring release. Ubisoft Montreal discussed the matter on Twitter.
Hey guys, I know the a lot of you have heard the resurfacing of the Watch Dogs on Wii U cancellation rumors. People continue to press Ubisoft about it and they won’t comment. Watch Dogs on Wii U is available for pre-order on Ubisoft’s website, as well as various retailers. The Limited Edition of Watch Dogs is not coming to Wii U, that we know for sure. Hopefully you guys can understand my stance on not posting this rumor anymore. Until Ubisoft actually, officially cancels the Wii U version, I’m going to take it as if it’s still coming. AntiActivity has discussed the matter a bit below.
After the whole Watch Dogs debacle from Kotaku. Stephen Totilo, editor in chief of Kotaku said “Anonymous sources are, I believe, an essential part of reporting.” As an editor myself, I feel this is completely BS, as what Mr. Totilo forgot to mention to his loyal readers is ‘anonymous sources’ are a way for Kotaku to gain more revenue by beating other news outlets to the punch. Fate of the game has written a nice article discussing the practice of journalism, and how Kotaku is breaking many rules for their own selfish gain. Read the article here, then come back to PE to discuss.
Noam Jenkins, the voice of Aiden Piece in Watch Dogs, has confirmed on Twitter that we shouldn’t expect the game to be released any sooner than May or June of this year.
After the big rumor/scare that Watch Dogs on Wii U was cancelled, Wii U owners seem to have responded. On Amazon, Watch Dogs on Wii U has vaulted up 703% in sales. This sudden jump in pre-orders was not coincidence, I think a lot of Wii U owners are looking forward to the game. Maybe this jump in pre-orders will convince Ubisoft to port other games to the Wii U if Watch Dogs is successful. I’ve said this once, I’ll say it again, go pre-order Watch Dogs on Wii U. Thanks darkgamer001 for the tip!
Renegade Kid finally showed off their new first person shooter Moon Chronicles today, and it looks great. The game is confirmed to support Circle Pad Pro, runs in 60 FPS, and features vastly improved graphics over the DS release in 2009. The firm’s Jools Watsham has shown off a few more screenshots comparing the 3DS release, to the DS release.
As you guys saw with my video, Watch Dogs on Wii U is indeed not cancelled on Wii U for the time being. GameStop has confirmed there was an error in the system, and the game is coming. Ubisoft declined to comment on the Wii U version, but reps usually decline to comment on rumors. Add that most reps work nowhere near the people actually calling the shots, its easy to see why a rep would not comment. They have no clue whether its cancelled or not. Anyways……go out and pre-order the game.
Just wanted to let you guys know that I called my local GameStop and they are still taking pre-orders for Watch Dogs in my area (Central Valley/Los Angeles). I have video proof as well, but YouTube is acting weird, it won’t finish processing the video. When YouTube works again, you’ll see the video I made. I encourage ALL of you guys to go pre-order Watch Dogs on Wii U. If Ubisoft sees a large amount of pre-orders for the game, we can assure a Wii U release.

A rumor has been going around that Watch Dogs on Wii U is cancelled. The source says that an “unnamed” user said GameStop’s in Italy are no longer taking pre-orders for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs. However, it seems like there is no real evidence to back that up, as Amazon is still taking pre-orders in Italy, American GameStop’s are still taking pre-orders, and Canadian EB Games are still taking pre-orders. Thanks to darkgamer001 and AntiActivity for the tips!

So, Ubisoft has delayed Watch Dogs into Spring of 2014, a move that’s quite wise given the sheer amount of games releasing in the “Holiday 2013″ window and the fact that the game itself will be better for it.
