Ghost Recon Online Still Planning Wii U Assault

PC first, then Wii U
Last year Ubisoft announced Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online for Wii U, but with no mention of it at this year's E3 we wondered if it had slipped off the publisher's plate. Ubi's senior vice president of sales and marketing, Tony Key, has put such speculation to bed by saying a Wii U version is still planned.
Key told IGN the plan is to get the PC version up and out first, then use that experience to feed into development of the Wii U version.
Ghost Recon Online on the PC, we can test and learn with that and apply all the best benefits we learn onto the Wii U version to make sure that it’s a great Wii U game. That’s an unusual product for a console and we want to make sure we nail it. It really is because the PC team is a lot of the same guys that will work on the Wii U.
So if the PC version works out well, the Wii U release should be just as good, which might take some of the sting out of waiting.
