After a series of ongoing release promises and the eventual confirmation that Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was indeed on its way to Nintendo’s latest home console, new information has surfaced that the Wii U entry will not include any downloadable content.
The announcement was delivered via the official Watch Dogs Twitter account when a Nintendo fan queried Ubisoft about the upcoming Wii U release. This discovery is somewhat unsurprising news considering just how long Watch Dogs has been in the pipeline for Wii U now, and has still not arrived.
Of course, this is not the first time Nintendo fans have been given the cold shoulder when it comes to additional download content. A number of other big-hit titles previously released on the Wii U have also failed to include DLC after very quiet – and occasionally delayed – releases.
Watch Dogs is due out in North America on the 18th of November and Europe on the 21st of November. Let us know in the comments how you feel about this latest news regarding the dismissal of downloadable content, and if it has deterred you from picking up the Wii U iteration of Watch Dogs on release.
