Wii U accounted for 2% of Ubisoft’s sales last quarter
Easily demonstrating why third-party publishers aren’t warming to Wii U as much as competitor consoles, Ubisoft have revealed that it only accounted for 2 percent of their overall sales during the last fiscal quarter.
That quarter, ending December 31st, saw the publisher launch Just Dance 2014, Just Dance Kids 2014 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, whilst titles released earlier in the year such as Rayman Legends and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist were discounted in the run up to Christmas.
In comparison, Sony’s PlayStation 4 was attributed to 12 percent of sales whereas Microsoft’s Xbox One drew 9 percent. Even the Wii was calculated as being 11 percent of sales, with Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance Kids 2014 being the only Ubisoft titles to hit the console.
This can largely be seen to have led to the publisher’s decision to delay the Wii U version of Watch_Dogs to place more resources behind releasing it on competitor consoles sooner.
