Ubisoft Now "Fully Focused" On Making The Wii U Version Of Watch_Dogs "The Best It Can Be"

Posted by Damien McFerran

Still no word on when it's actually coming, though

As we all know, Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs is shipping on May 27th — but not on the Wii U. Following the widespread delay of the game last year, the French publisher held back the Nintendo version in order to ensure that the other editions are as good as they can be — much to the chagrin of Wii U owners everywhere.

However, creative director Jonathan Morin has revealed to Red Bull that with the other versions now finished and ready for launch this month, Ubisoft's team are hard at work making sure the Wii U offering is "the best version it can be":

right now [the Wii U version is] currently being done, but I'm not directly involved. We wanted to finish all the platforms that we are currently shipping. We needed those guys to get [the shipping versions] finished, and the good news now is that they're all fully focused on the Wii U version, making sure it gets the attention it deserves to make it the best version it can be.

Ubisoft has previously stated that its Bucharest studio is handling the Wii U version, so presumably the company has now diverted talent from the other versions in order to get the Nintendo one ready for launch.

There's still no word on when the Wii U edition will actually arrive, but a 2014 launch is a "possibility". Will you be waiting for the Nintendo version or will you be picking it up for another system? Let us know with a comment.

Im just snagging this for PC, I wanted to get it for Wii U since Ubisoft keeps talking second screens and the Wii U has one but such a large delay for such a minor possible improvement in the game is simply not worth it. By the time it comes out for Wii U it will be $30 on steam.

I hope they are being honest. I am pretty much committed to buying this version unless the reviews indicate they really did a bad job on the port.

In one of the recent trailers it did say "Wii U to be released 2014" or something similar.
Either way, I'm getting the PS4 bundle. If they make enough differences, I'd certainly double-dip. Sounds good so far.

That's good to hear. While it sucks that the game is delayed I well not get a chance to plays it if it wasn't.

Also, why is red bull reporting on games, that's surprising.

Yeah i'm just gonna wait. I'm not exactly dying for this game and these days unfortunately being a Nintendo fan teaches you patience (and frustration), but i have such a huge backlog anyway, i shouldn't complain too much.

This is why 3rd party games don't sell well on Nintendo consoles. They come out on time for Sony and Microsoft, so obviously more people want to buy it on time, rather than wait for the delayed Wii U version :/

I only own Nintendo consoles though, so I'll be getting this when it eventually gets released on Wii U!

Kroisos said:

If I get this at all it will be Wii U, because I'm in no hurry to play this game or get any other system, and I'm certainly not getting a system just for this game. My enthusiasm has waned so much I'll need stellar reviews before I get this. Even solid reviews won't be enough; there are enough solid games that look more interesting.

I'm a bit unsure on this as the Wii U port of AC4 had made it with the rest of the pack and still held up well on its own. Looking better than the PS3 and 360 as it should have.

I am disappointed that the Wii U owners got the bag over the head this time around with no solid release date and no idea what to expect from the delay.

If DLC is released before the Wii U gets the game, I expect at least some extras such as extra content added in game and on the disc.

I can wait while I catch up on some backlog but perhaps it's also a wise decision not to release so close to Mario Kart 8 where Watch Dogs would be overlooked. Hopefully it's not too long of a wait or I may go the Steam route as well.

I'm very much looking forward to the Wii U version since U is currently my only console. If the delay gets massive it might be a different story since I plan to buy a PS4 sometime later this year or early 2015. I also want to read a couple of reviews before I make my mind. August-september would be ideal and even quite realistic I think.

@audiobrainiac funny how everyone wants to have things when they first come out or miss the boat sort of speak. Haven't played last of us but will get this summer for ps4 and I'm looking forward to it. As for this I'm getting wii u version. I love the game pad (I know many don't) in my family it "just makes sense" on how we use the tv and media in our house and it a god send. Obviously would like to play with game pad features in mind but admit I use off TV play quite a bit now that my wife knows she doesn't have to fight for TV.

I'm sure I'm beginning to sound like a broken record by now, but with being a parent I will definitely be getting this on Wi U vs. PS4 simply for Off-TV play. I will probably never by a VITA so . . .

Have been playing MH3U since I got it for 20 at gamestop. Never played before now I'm 120 hours in and don't know if I can stop lol, so yeah a delay on this will be perefetct as I try to armor up in MH and jump into MK8 at end of month. My summer is set so it worked out for me with delay.
As for DLC last I ever bought was cod Bo for zombie maps, skipped bo2 on Xbox to support wii u when it came out and although I felt a little left out when the new zombie maps came out for others during BO2 I actually got over it quickly. Saved myself some loot in the process. I think I have hit a corner on content on my games now that I'm older and realize that if a company can't add the stuff in the first place for 60 bux (while it may be worth it) I just will skip it and get the next game on the horizon.
Some may jump in with joke about Nintendo not releasing stuff on a continuous basis or loss of 3 rd party, for them I just say I got life to deal with and the few hours I get during week to play are taken by the games that are there. So I'm set. Hopefully I see everyone in MK8 lobbies soon that's gonna be a great summer

Guess what Ubi? You can keep the game. I would've played it this month, but it's almost impossible for me to play anything starting july/august and I doubt it'll be done till then. And once I will have enough time again, there'll be most likely a lot other (probably better) games, I'm way more interested in.
It's Rayman Legends all over again.

@Nntndo_1986 Yeah i STILL think off-TV play was a genius idea. Works well for my kids, especially with Virtual Console stuff. I've been gaming since Circa NES and now all i own is a Wii U. Its all we need. Just don't have interest in (or time for) other systems.

If it's coming out I'll get it. ZombiU and Assassin's Creed are the only Ubisoft games on my Wii U and all three are great quality. I can't even imagine playing Assassin's Creed without a second screen anymore and ZombiU is still the best use of the Wii U hardware.

If Watch_Dogs is as good as those two combined, I'll be a happy camper.

@audiobrainiac I've always had a Nintendo console and will continue to in the future for their ip's no getting around that.... And I'm fine with that. Now of course seeing how the markets change I did have Xbox 360 last gen, got rid of those and got ps4 this time around to get some of their 1st party gems. I'm kind of Lucky that I can do that, but I do have games on Wii u that keep me and my kids busy and while some have felt abandoned I have had nothing but fun with the console, don't get me wrong I would have loved for all/most 3rd parties to make it over making the ps4 purchases mute. But alas that's how it rolls, I try to deal with it as best as possible.

I'm in no hurry to play Watch Dogs. Assuming they actually do a good job porting it to the Wii U, I'm still getting it. I guess that means the Wii U will probably have a nice line-up this year. Bayonetta, Mario Kart, Smash, the Zelda spin-off, Watch Dogs and whatever Nintendo has up their sleeves for E3.
Though Nintendo should focus on localizing X as soon as possible. I don't care if the game is not finished. They can start doing it right now.

Hmmm ports are improving,just bought amazing spiderman 2 and its clearly better than ps360 version,with crisper textures and a smooth 30-45 fps and most important not a hint of the screen tearing that plagued the first game on wiiu. My point here is that I have a feeling the wiiu version of watchdogs will get similar treatment.

I feel this is third parties giving wiiu a chance to see how things sell. Giving the wiiu this chance though has consequences. Most hurtful is in order to make use of the wiiu's special abilities then a delay may become a common accurance,and most fans wont want to wait. Me? Il be buying the ps4 version. BUT!!! I will happily double dip if the extra dev time makes the wiiu version the best,like deus ex directors cut was. Whether other fans will deem it worth double dipping,well that depends on them. And that is the double edged sword of the wiiu

I'll wait for it, though it still annoys me that they treat Wii U owners this way. It better have all the DLC out at the time of its release on disc.

I'm expecting a September-August release date confirmed at E3.

rjejr

rjejr said:

How this sells is going to be a combination of timing, pricing and DLC much more than whether this looks like a PS3/360 game vs PS4/X1.

Sony versions already have an exclusive hour, and there will be DLC before this releases, and it's Ubi and it's May so $30 on all other systems by Black Friday.

The Wii U release has everything against it, except maybe a doubly large install base looking for something to play this holiday if SSB releases in Jan/Feb.

If they can't get it done in 2014 they shouldn't bother, just include it free on the Wii U version of W_D 2 next year at the same time as the other versions, pobabaly holiday.

SilverArrow said:

I know I'm speaking common sense but hear me out:

1) Wouldn't it had made sense to put more people on the Wii U dev team and delayed the other versions?

2) Wouldn't delaying the Wii U version undoubtedly ensure its failure due to people already owning it on other consoles and killing hype?

3) Shouldn't they have canned the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions due to the game coming out on their successors?

4) Shouldn't development have started on the Wii U version first seeing as its architecture is different from the two?

5) Do they really think Wii U owners will stand for this backhanded treatment?

Yeeeah boyyeee! The best that it can be will hopefully be better than the rest, as far as gameplay and overall experience is concerned. We already know that it'll be the lesser version graphically, but I couldn't care less about that. Arkham City Armored Edition was the best version of that title because of the gamepad elements. Watchdogs could be another case of the same.

cusman said:

I switched my pre-order from Wii U version to PS4 after it missed the launch in 2013. It makes no difference what platform you play the game on, if the core of the game is good, its good.

On console preference I like the idea of better graphics, online with party-chat, exclusive content, and faster system in general. I don't value gimmick Gamepad screen features as much, sometimes they good, other times kind of detrimental.

The only way the Wii U version will be even remotely successful is if A) it's a solid (and I mean SOLID) port job and B) if it's essentially a GOTY edition, dubbed the 'Wii U Edition' or something, that includes ALL that other bullpoopoodoodoocacapoopledoopledoggiepoopledoodoopoopsiedoodles DLC and "second single player campaign" nonsense they are going to sell seperately on the other systems.

We already know releasing the game day and date with the other consoles doesn't mean anything (see Blacklist and AC4 Wii U sales numbers for reference), so my guess is they saw that MK8 release date and "shifted priorities" away from the Wii U version until later.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

@KennyPowers nice ;)

I'll be getting this on Wii u for sure as I only buy Nintendo console's. I've lost all of enthusiasm now but I've got a major game backlog to clear so I can't say the delay bothers me. The big thing that will pull me back in are well used gamepad features, the game is perfect for the hardware so I'm still optimistic it will come together well.....just late ;)

@DimetriWarrior

#1 LOL. No.

#2 Yes.

#3 Canning the PS360 versions means canning the Wii U version. The Wii U version is built from the PS360 versions.

#4 You're asking a lot from 3rd party developers on that one. Nintendo's relations with them aren't exactly stellar. It's pretty much "Here's our new console. Make games for it. Or not. Whatevs."

#5 Wii U owners have been backhanding 3rd party devs for generations. 3rd parties like Ubisoft are simply reacting here. Just look at the sales numbers for any Ubisoft game on Wii U.

Kaeobais

Kaeobais said:

They're full of crap. They obviously don't care about the Wii U. Having the Wii U version come out later will completely destroy its sales, and if they really cared, they'd delay all versions. And don't tell me they can't, because it certainly didn't stop them when Rayman Legends was delayed.

@Kaeobais

"They obviously don't care about the Wii U."

Have you ever stopped and thought that maybe Wii U owners don't care about them? I keep saying it; I'll say it again: check out the sales numbers for any Ubisoft game on Wii U. And before people throw Rayman Legends at me, even that game undersold expectations.

RennanNT

RennanNT said:

@DimetriWarrior
1) No. Delaying once again would reduce their sales a lot.
2) Yes. But they still are losing much less sales than delaying everything. Most Wii U owner hyped by this have another console anyway.
3) PS3+360's install base >>>>>>>>> WiiU+PS4+XB1's
4) Ubi is a business, sales come first.
5) You're kidding right? 3rd party on Wii U has been "indie", "delayed port" or "nothing" for a year now, save rare exception. They have plenty experience to know what will happen, and we too..

Ubisoft are very notorious in pulling these stunts with Nintendo hardware, and exposing their flaws in the process

Their first stunt was with a certain hand-drawn platformer that released two years ago...
It was stated as coming to 3DS and Vita along with other platforms. There was absolutely no media surrounding the 3DS release (all the shots they released were doctored). We we're promised the SAME CORE EXPERIENCE and that was it.

It was delayed to concide with the PS Vita release, then it was delayed March 18th 2012. Then it got delayed again due to technical issues....

A demo was made available in May...and I was EXCITED! Until I saw it running for myself. The demo was so unpolished I though it was alpha code. Until the retail release dropped.

I think that was Ubisoft's last game on the system....

Meh, watchdogs is another Ubi open world game, so lets hope it is good. Ubi open world games are never great and i'm sure this won't be game of the year by any stretch of the imagination.

But if i do buy this i'll get it for PC. The graphics will be better and it'll be cheaper on steam. One thing i don't understand is why people feel they have a 'duty' to support Nintendo. I love Nintendo but that doesn't mean i should settle with a second class experience

Sugar_Crunch_BD

#64

Sugar_Crunch_BD said:

Oh and on the 'Ubi don't care for Nintendo fans' thing, Ubisoft are a business and the install base is lowest on WiiU than any other console, bar the XBONE. And Ubi games sell badly on Nintendo systems, rayman legends is an exception because it's a platformer, watch dogs is an open world game, and those do more well on Sony,PC and Xbox

Had Watch Dogs pre ordered for Wii U since last fall.

Admittedly, I thought about buying it for PS4 since Best Buy has $10 reward bonus for pre ordering, and when coupled with GCU, takes the price down to $37.99. Which is a fine deal any way you slice it. But... I want this game on Wii U with the gamepad integration and free online. I'm not gonna pay a subscription fee just to have online hacking invasions. THAT'S what turns me off the PS4 version.

I was committed to buying this as it looked uniquely interesting, but due to the delay punishing WiiU owner alone, theyve lost my $60 permanently and yeah I could have snapped it up for PS3 or PC but I will not. If this gets played anymore, used game where they dont see a penny as its the right thing to do not supporting these tactics.

@Nntndo_1986 Thing is if you wait on any other platform you get the GOTY version with all the DLC for 50% of the price. Whereas especially if you are mainly interested in downloads with Nintendo it costs the same price. (The inferior disk versions might be cheaper but still not complete for the most part).

I am fine with them holding it back. Optimize it for the WiiU's GPU. Look at how good ME3 and DEUS EX turned out . . . And Ubisoft should not be worried about sales as WATCH_DOGS will be the only adult open-world GTA-style offering on the system.

SCAR392 said:

@gatorboi352
That's a pretty brave assumption to say that Wii U owners have been backhanding 3rd parties for generations. You're assuming everyone had a GCN or Wii, one of which didn't even support the "big" games via hardware.

It's ridiculous to assume everybody that owns a Nintendo console doesn't buy 3rd party, especially in situations where 3rd parties didn't even care much for Nintendo, anyway.

You're ignoring why people didn't buy those games that launched on the same day. People expected Ubisoft to create graphically enhanced versions on Wii U, when the market's situation isn't like that, and the reason it isn't like that, is because of the Xbox One and PS4 being ×86.

People expected more, but have had no choice but to settle for the minimum, which is what Ubisoft and other 3rd parties have been offering.

CrabGats

SCAR392 said:

On another note, I'm completely fine with this. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out, even if it takes a bit longer.

Also, people are forgetting that not everyone has a Wii U. When the game launches this fall, it won't matter to anyone who gets a Wii U, AFTER that. Another thing, if PS4 sells 3 million copies, and Wii U sells 1 million copies, that equals 4 million copies.

QBertFarnsworth said:

They'll delay releasing it, I'll delay buying it. I hope the delay results in a polished game that makes unique use of the Wii U's capabilities. But it's a 3rd party game being releases several months to a year after the other systems. It will be full price, few will buy it, and the price will come down. If I have to wait 7 months for the game, what's another 3 months for the price to drop $30?

Nntndo_1986 said:

@unrandomsam you do have a point. Assuming the game comes out 6 months after ps4 and goty comes out for far less, as someone pointed out the port for Wii u will need to be beyond spectacular for me not to bite. You go to the store and see a burger and fries for buck fifty and and just a burger (same as first without fries) for 3 bud, it's an obvious choice, considering the burger are similar.
At this time I don't know when Wii u will come out, when Ps4 goty will come out so I can only speak to what I can or can't wait for and that's the Wii u version. Obviously when all the dust settles and I'm presented with the same game and highly different prices I may just bite on ps4 version. But again they will need to be out at same time otherwise I am fine getting Wii u version as it is out at the time I am willing to get it.
I may not be explaining myself as some may just say wait for goty, but I've read reviews on dlc on many games and to be honest , yeah it doesn't bother me in the least to not have it. To each their own

PJR0cks

PJR0cks said:

Honestly for me it's interesting that people complain about how Ubisoft is delaying this game on Wii U, just the fact that they are willing to put the time to develop this game for Wii U, everyone should be grateful, seriously black flag was released on Wii U with other platforms, the last gen consoles out sold it to about 15 to 1 and the current generation out sold it to about 8 to 1, so just the fact that Ubisoft is releasing this title is probably because of the loyalty they have to Nintendo for all the Just dance / Rayman titles sold on the Wii, and unfortunately I'm guessing if MK8 and SSB don't pick up the pace on Wii U sales this will probably be the last big 3rd party franchise moving to the Wii U.

Hortencio said:

I'll wait for the U specific review of this game, and even then, it'll have to be under a 7 to keep me from buying it. This game looks very deep, original, and challenging, never mind Ubisoft's historical lack of direct support or Nintendo faithful's poor 3rd party support; I mean, how many people can say they bought the excellent BG&E new? And yes, the Wii U is the only current console I (will) own (Ah! THE PRIDE! Dark-Link73, ya woman...), so that will be the version I get.

I generally don't like games developed by Ubisoft. They have great ideas and all, but there's something that I can't put my finger on. Just not my cup of tea I guess.

So I'm not hyped up at all, but maybe it will surprise me.

It is nice to see they actually care to make a Wii U version, and I hope they make a good one.

I'll wait and see the reviews. Hopefully this game isnt just pure hype. People really need to start supporting Ubisoft more. They at least put games out on Nintendo consoles.

But I'll tell you what. Give me ZombiU2 and I'll let it slide.

Putting it on PS360 will be their saving grace as the install base on those two machines is incredibly larger than that of its succesors. I TRULY admire Ubi for their support of Ninty. It is REALLY remarkable and honestly I feel that their relationship couldn't be better. Ubisoft is intentionally loosing a massive amount of money to show the world and Nintendo it is a supporter.

I'm honestly not all that interested in the game, but I still hope to get it on Wii U because of reasons. Same thing with Project CARS - not at all my type of game, but there needs to be some representation that Nintendo gamers aren't just in the market for Nintendo-produced games.

The Wii U's going to be the definitive edition of Watch_Dogs. I won't settle for this sub-par, pseudo-innovative "next-gen" experience on other platforms.

@midnafanboy Agreed; I love ZombiU and was really disappointed to hear they weren't planning on a sequel.

As far as Watchdogs goes, I wonder if this is related to Child of Light's success, since it comes only a day after its release? The critic reviews of the game thus far have been overwhelmingly positive.

JUST A THOUGHT: I am amazed of the fact that so many people have more than one console!

Of course the Wii U version is delayed. Nobody wants to release their ginormous investment on a Nintendo system the DAY BEFORE MARIO KART.

There will be an announcement on the date shortly after the other versions have released, is my bet. Possibly at E3.

@jakysnakydx I agree, Ubisoft didn't decide to drop the Wii U after their massive loss of money that was Zombie U. Even their ports won't really make them much ifanything. While it will be a while before they chance their hand at another Wii U exclusive, there is a good chance they will when the console sales pick up.

" There's still no word on when the Wii U edition will actually arrive, but a 2014 launch is a "possibility". "

i don't think there's any other chance than 2014 launch.

I'll wait for the WiiU version, there's no hurry. Word from playthroughs of the other versions will tell me if it's even worth picking up.

I'll wait for this version. I took Rayman Legends and Child of Light on Wii U instead of PS3, because I think these versions are just better (and it killed me not to grab those awesome collector's goodies for the PS3 version of Child of Light!).
Like many of us, I have this curious feeling that Ubisoft is like "this girl" who is claiming to love us but is secretly planning to broke with us.
I don't feel loved by Ubisoft. I can sense it : when Ubi is looking at Wii U players, there is some pity in his eye...
BUT... I have to prove him wrong. To show him that I can be loved. So yeah, I'll take this version, even if Ubi is treating me like a hobo.

@Warruz Same here. These type of games I rather have on consoles then PC. I am just going to connect my pc to my TV with my 360 controller and it will do.

I got tons of games on my Xbox one and wii U and 3DS XL to play still. I can wait and see if the wii U version is worth it over the x1. Maybe cheaper even? That's a win! I usually see Ubi games on wii U half off after a couple months. Its nice. I bought AC4 on wii U instead of X1 cuz it was 40 dollars cheaper!!!!!

If I have not played it by then, I will definitely buy it on WiiU. I don't have a PS4 or Xbox One yet and I don't want to buy it on my Xbox 360 or PS3.... I would get it for PC, but my PC does not have a desk atm. So yeah, the game looks amazing, but I'm not obsessing over it. I'll get it eventually!
