Ubisoft Bringing Watch Dogs, Rainbow 6 to Wii U, Axes Beyond Good & Evil 2 For All Platforms

NE:

We already revealed in advance of the previous Nintendo Direct that the Monolith Soft game would be revealed as well as the Wii U VC. The same source is now telling us that while they won't show up in the Nintendo Direct, Watch Dogs and Rainbow 6 are in fact coming to Wii U. Although, a multi-platform release of Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been axed after disappointing sales of Wii U in Europe and the steep price point of one of the upcoming consoles was revealed to Ubisoft. (Beyond Good & Evil 2, PS4, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Patriots, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox One)

He has a brilliant idea... you know how much of a big deal nintendo made about the wiiU having third party support

Yeah, might as well not buy games from the 3rd party that not only made a bigger push than nintendo for its own consoles launch, but is one of the few third party devs still supporting it.

Where is EA, Activision after they promised they would support the system?

How about Team Ninja porting a game... that was PUBLISHED by nintendo to other consoles?

Rayman is coming out of ubisofts pocket... they know that not every wiiU owner is going to buy the game... so of course they made the game multiplat. Ubi delayed Rayman because the install base for wiiU is low... thats no secret.

They delayed the wiiU version because they want a maximum yield from the game... people who think GTAV will ruin this game are delusional. This will appeal to families more than GTA will, much younger audiences with responsible parents will pick the game up

They are a business that wants to capitalize on their investment... sure it sounds dirty and all but think about this carefully

Not supporting them is going to further increase the possibility of third parties abandoning nintendo again... you know that thing nintendo kept making a big deal about for the wiiU.

Brilliant plan he has

If they decide to boycott Ubisoft games, other third parties will notice and will ultimately stop caring about the wiiU, thus resulting in the wii all over again

@Good_Guy_Jamal

Ignore him. He's a troll.

@Nimblest-Assassin

I'm not choosing to boycott Rayman Legends or Ubisoft games in general. However their shady business practices in regards to the Wii U version of RL have certainly deterred my enthusiasm for the game.

I'll be focusing on more exciting endeavors, such as a number of the recently announced 3DS game as well as the likes of Monster Hunter and Pikmin 3 (whenever it comes out). Until then, RL remains lower on my list of games to play.

i'm looking forward to some awesome games from ubisoft, that said the delay of a completed game, for a multiplat release is bogus. ill look forward to either watch dogs or rainbow 6 for wii u.
PirateThom  +   614d ago
That's just what the Wii U needs, people buying less games.
jimbobwahey  +   614d ago
I agree. The sooner Nintendo exits the console business and starts making games for other companies (like Sega) the better. People shouldn't have to buy crappy Nintendo hardware just to buy the one (or two, if you're really lucky) worthwhile Nintendo games that get released each year.
gearchin1  +   610d ago
@jimbobwahey you are daydreaming my friend, the day Nintendo stops, it's the day they stop everything completely.
showtimefolks  +   614d ago
That's why 3rd party publishers barely support Nintendo because people like you only buy Nintendo 1st party exclusives and rest of the time play Nintendo land or some weird exercise are

UBI has been ne of the best publisher for Nintendo, they support wii pretty well now they are doing the same for wiiu. But guess what at the pace wiiu Is selling I don't see a lot of tempting from publishers to push their AAA games on wiiu.

Because of gamers like you who take the fact a game was delayed too damn serious

forget the paragraphs about the Wii U games, this quote right here is dynamite and is very interesting to anyone interested in the next sony or microsoft console. the quote is regarding Ubisoft's reluctensy to further Beyond Good and Evil 2 as an up-port to next gen consoles in the future. --> "2)The publisher heard the pricing of one future console from the console’s maker and got scared that penetration of the console at launch might be too low due to the economy." <-- that quote is very telling that at least one of the next generation consoles is going to launch at a fairly steep price.

both sony and microsoft are selling console bundles and other variations of the playstation 3 and xbox360 right around $399.00. people are clearly buying these aging consoles around the $400.00 mark, so you have to assume Ubisoft isn't thinking $400.00 is high entry when people are willing to still buy older systems at that price. that means one console maker is going to be selling its console at launch at least at $450.00-$500.00, possibly even more. this is very interesting because i am extremely curious what will be in this console that justifies a high launch price like that. regardless im interested to see how this story unfolds for either sony or microsoft.

Did Sony not learn last time when they launched a $600 console? They think the economy is in better shapes this time around to justify another beast price tag? I just shake my head sometimes..
blue_flowers  +   614d ago
i wouldn't go accusing Sony just yet man, Microsoft is the company adding all this supposed media support to its next console where as i really havent heard any rumors to suggest the playstation 4 should be that expensive. it wouldnt surprise me if the tables turned this launch. but we will have to see!
Skate-AK  +   614d ago
Oh wow they might have canceled Aliens:CM. I know it's bombing but I know a lot of people were holding out for that title.
Starfox17  +   614d ago
Not bothered i'll be on LegoCity/Monster hunter and NFS Mostwanted.
Skate-AK  +   614d ago
Lego City looks awesome.
Neonridr  +   614d ago
That would be absolutely ridiculous. The game was basically completed at this point. Why not just take a bunch of money, pile it up and set it on fire instead of wasting all that development time.

Although in this industry, you never know...

Such a disappointment though. The Wii U owners were promised the definitive version, however maybe no game at all is in fact the definitive version. My god they were right!
BanBrother  +   614d ago
Yay Ubosoft, don't make Beyond Good and Evil 2, you can make more money off milking Assassin's Creed dry!!

I stopped liking Ubisoft after they announced Assassin's Creed 10.
RuperttheBear  +   614d ago
Shame about Beyond Good and Evil 2, been looking forward to a sequel for years.

Me too. One of my favorite games of the PS2/GC/Xbox era. It had so much atmosphere and charm. Michel Ancel is one of a kind and he deserves better.

... People should stop believing everything they see on the internet.

The speculation for this started yesterday someone from reddit or 4chan posted a sheet of paper with a gamestop logo on it with hand written release dates. First off. The release dates book at game stop are printed on white and blue lined paper. There is no logo. They are stored in a binder. Not random pieces of computer paper with a logo.
Prodigy-X  +   614d ago
Fake.
Alos88  +   614d ago
If this is true, coupled with his unhappiness over the treatment of the team working on Rayman Legends, I could see
Michel Ancel leaving Ubisoft over this.
Starfox17  +   614d ago
So due to over pricing of 1 nextgen console and wiiu not yet taken off in europe they cancelled it fair enough just give me watch dogs and Rainbow6 wiiu i'll forgive u ubi.
Summons75  +   614d ago
Common in what world did anyone think we were getting beyond good and evil 2? All they've done is avoid the topic and try to tease people with it. Really hope watchdogs and rainbow six end up on wiiu, that will get the wii u some great games and shut the haters up before they find something else to complain about to justify their denial that the wiiu is a great system just like ps3, 360 and pc

If this happens a lot of Trolls are going to get their hate-filled hearts broke.

LOL-
Does anybody else think that since it is Valentines Day,
Mr. Iwata will be stretched out on a Bear Skin Rug holding bananas?

I have been saying this,and some people cant see;now ubisoft comes and confirm my thoughts and comments,the next generation systems will have the same or maybe just a little better out of thE gate sales at release that the the ones the Wii u achive.I have been saying this,with this economy console sales are going to be below the expected at release.Its not just Nintendo that is going to have problems selling Wii u,if people dont get to see new IPs and new game experiencies they will end up waiting to pick a next gen console its the obvious move,not to mention that this year is still full of great games that are coming out on the PS3 and xbox 360.The attach rate of the PS4 and next xbox will be almost the same has the Wii u.People are expecting a $400 next generation machines ,well is not going to happen!

I agree with you. And most business analyst would too-
cause even Apple's sells are down (and that does not happen).

The problem is that most people in this industry and this site don't understand mutual destruction or mutual benefit.

And most people haven't lived through the Video Game Apocalypse -
When Atari (what?) and Intellivision (who?) ruined the Video Game Market Boom.

Later Nintendo Resurrection the Market with the NES but it could happen to CONSOLES again.
hano  +   614d ago
Fuck you Ubisoft, you get worse everyday.

They recently said that Beyond good and Evil 2 was coming, now they axed it

Go and make the same Assasin Creed game every year you pieces of shit.

This is getting rather funny. Now games that people said the Wii U would never get are being announced. Of course that's not going to stop the trolls but it's hilarious nevertheless. I'm looking forward to more stories like this as I want to see all the spin that will be involved.
