Watch Dogs still on track for Spring release… except on the Wii U


Good news! Ubisoft has reconfirmed that Watch Dogs is stil on track for a Spring release. The game will be available in stores during the first quarter of Ubisoft’s 2015 fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014.

But the bad news is that this release date doesn’t apply to the Wii U version of the game. According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, the Wii U version was delayed to provide more development resources for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One versions: “We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft.”

As terrible as this news is for Wii U owners, I suppose we should consider ourselves lucky that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs wasn’t outright canceled.
