Ubisoft has held its latest earnings call where it stated it was pleased with the number of pre-orders for the upcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

During the call, the company's CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that just 3% of its total sales in the second quarter of 2013 were from Wii U, IGN reports.

However, the last Ubisoft title to emerge on Nintendo's system was Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, which came out before Christmas last year in North America and early January in Europe, so it's not a complete surprise the company didn't sell so many Wii U games in April through to the end of June.

Ubisoft, and Nintendo of course, will be hoping that figure will see a significant boost in the following few months as some major titles start to emerge. First up there's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, which is released in August, and it will be closely followed by the once-Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends.

At the end of October Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will come out fighting, while Watch_Dogs will sneak out in November. Meanwhile, Just Dance 2014 is down for an October release, and there's also Cloudberry Kingdom, which is heading to the eShop on 1st August - not to mention The Smurfs 2.

While ZombiU was not profitable and won't be getting a sequel the publisher will hope the upcoming titles will boost the number of Wii U copies flying off the shelves.
