Ghost Recon Online Still Planning Wii U Assault

Posted by Damien McFerran

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.

The Wii U could make games like this cater to a slightly wider audience without making it sacrifice too much of its depth. I don't know if i'd buy it but i certainly would love to see it.

I hope that Ghost Recon for the Wii U takes the HUD and puts it on the Touchscreen while there is a constant map on the Touchscreen. That would be absolutely perfect for Ghost Recon.

Personally, I prefer the games stay in the oven till cooked through and complete in design and vision.
"the PC team is a lot of the same guys that will work on the Wii U."
Tells me the game is either not started yet or is very young, but taking their time in the dev dept. I also like the fact much of the PC team is handling production. Wii U needs quality, not shovelware, in its first year of life.




One of the potential offerings being hyped by the mags. I think this I'd one of the few hardcore Wii U games I'd go for

I don't understand, it was playable at E3 2011, yet it won't be playable for a while? Hmm. Maybe they've done a complete overhaul of the visuals or gameplay aspects. Anyway, getting this as soon as it's out, along with Trine 2, Rayman Legends, NSMBU, AC3, Darksiders 2, NintendoLand, NG3, Pikmin 3, TTT2 & Scribblenauts. My wallet is gonna be shot!
