Ubisoft on its declining Wii U support, has a game done but frozen for the console, more
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken about the company’s declining support for Wii U as part of an interview with Polygon. You’ll find his comments below.
“We did adapt the number of products to the level of quantities that the machine did. So we will have Just Dance again which is well suited for the machine. We’ll have Watch Dogs. We have another couple of products that we are waiting to launch, specifically we have one game that we wait for the machine to be more mass market to launch.”
“We don’t have a number. We need the sales to increase so it becomes more and more mass market then we will have the volume that will justify massive marketing and TV marketing.”
“I hope so. We have a game that has been done for six months. It’s on the shelf, waiting for more families to have the console.”
“I think it (ZombiU) was so adapted to the Wii U so (bringing it to another platform) would be difficult to do. Maybe it will come to other platforms, but not as a full game. It was really developed for that type of machine.”
“Nintendo is really coming up with fantastic games,” he said. “They could, with the right price and very good games, help the machine start selling.”
“It could never come out. It could come out on another format… ”
“I think we have to wait for Smash Bros. to come. Smash Bros has always been a big, big property for Nintendo and for gamers. And we all know that there are lots of Nintendo fans that are waiting for big games to come. We know they are coming. We don’t know if they will still be there. I think when I speak with the fans that come to E3 90 percent of them are crazy Nintendo fans. They really love Nintendo and the games they do.”
On another note, Guillemot officially confirmed that Watch Dogs is coming to Wii U in November.
