Ubisoft to reassess Wii U at the start of 2014


Ubisoft will reassess their commitment to Wii U after Christmas, although remain hopeful that Nintendo’s key first-party releases will drive the ailing console’s install base.

The company’s CEO Yves Guillemot reaffirmed their continued support for the console this year, with scheduled releases including Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Rayman Legends, and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist.

“We like the machine itself, with its possibility to have different types of gameplay on the TV screen and on the tablet. It’s something that’s really new for the industry, and we’ll continue to see more of that on the PS4 and Xbox One,” Guillemot explained to GamesIndustry International.

“We will continue to support the Wii U this Christmas, and we’re expecting it to take off in terms of sales and we’ll review what happened again at the beginning of next year.”
