During its investors call last week, Ubisoft provided an update about its financial status regarding Wii U.

CEO Yves Guillemot started out by noting the console's "slow launch". While the company is "satisfied by our market share in the US and Europe", Guillemot said that its "performance was impacted by low-tie ratios."

A slew of new first-party Wii U titles were announced during a Nintendo Direct last month. Guillemot feels that some of these releases will "boost its potential."

"Regarding Wii U, while we are satisfied by our market share in the US and Europe - at respectively 20% and 27% - our performance was impacted by low-tie ratios. Nintendo has recently announced the coming release of some of their great brands on Wii U, and we believe it will boost its potential."

honestly, if they would just release Rayman Legends on time, it would have boosted the sales of the game and the console by a bit or so.

and if they really believe in the Wii U, they should also bring Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell and others to it, if they can delay the release on other consoles that would just be "FAIR".

@Guymelef

Exactly, you can't make comments like this if you're part of the problem. This Rayman bit continues to be salt in our wound when Ubisoft makes these statements. They just need to stop being dumb and release the game for the WiiU owners. I'm sure this title would greatly help sales of the system. How can they not see that???
