With the recent news that Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy for the 3DS has been scrapped, we were left wondering if the Wii U instalment of the popular stealth, action series might follow the same route.

In an interview with Swedish website Aftonbladet (as translated by the Swedish branch of Eurogamer), Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot remained tight-lipped on specific Assassin's Creed Wii U details but did confirm that the Wii U game is still on its way:

Our next edition of Assassin's [Creed] will be in a Wii U version...

When asked if that meant Assassin's Creed: Revelations ― scheduled to be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC later this year ― Guillemot's response was:

No, not Revelations. For the future.

And that's about all the boss at Ubisoft was prepared to say on the matter. When asked whether "for the future" meant Assassin's Creed III, Guillemot refused to say.

Which would you prefer? A unique Wii U version that's a spin-off from the main series, or would you hope that the release of Assassin's Creed III will also make it to Nintendo's next home console?
