Watch Dogs could possibly be cancelled for Wii U, according to a report by Wiitalia.
The Italian Nintendo based website says that according to one of their readers the highly anticipated hacker-thriller is cancelled after their pre-ordered copy of the game on Wii U was no longer offered.
The reader was informed by a GameStop employee that the Wii U version was no longer available as Ubisoft decided against publishing it on that console. The reader tried pre-ordering the game on Wii U with another GameStop store but was unable to do so as the Wii U version wasn’t on the store’s database.
According to research conducted by Wiitalia, they contacted multiple GameStop stores and were told that the Wii U version was indeed cancelled.
Ubisoft has not released a statement regarding the rumours. We’ve reached out to Ubisoft Montreal, the developers of Watch Dogs, for comment – so far, no word back.
Originally intended for release in November 2013, Watch Dogs, available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 & PS3, was delayed until spring 2014.
