SEGA has now confirmed that this rumour is not true and that the game will be released in the Wii U launch window as planned. That means it'll be on shelves anytime between now and 31st March.
Aliens: Colonial Marines came out this week on other systems, but SEGA had always insisted it would come out later on Wii U due to the extra features needing implementing.
Demiurge Studios has been developing the Wii U version of the game, while Gearbox Software was responsible for the other platforms.
This is indeed welcome news for Wii U owners. Are you interested in picking this one up? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
