Watch_Dogs for Wii U Missing from Nintendo's List of Upcoming Games: Another Sign of Cancellation?

There have been rumors of a possible cancellation of the Wii U version of Watch_Dogs, due to the cancellation of preorders at Gamestop, but today Nintendo released the official list of upcoming games for its consoles, and Watch_Dogs is indeed not there.

This list is not final. Some titles are definitely missing on it including Watch_Dogs. Then there are some titles that are given release date that have no chance of actually getting one i.e X in 2014.

Who knows what is true though.

Abriael1635d ago

if you look at Ubisoft Child of Light is there, and is another that doesn't have a firm release date (for now it's just 2014).

So it doesn't make much sense for Child of Light to be there and Watch Dogs not to be there, unless there's something up.

Lon3wolf1634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

Still listed for Wii-U on the Ubisoft site though, hard to say either way until Ninty or Ubi confirm what is happening.

minimur121634d ago

ubi are well known for supporting all platorms, so i doubt they've cancelled it unless they seriously effed up.

DeadMansHand1634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

Well, considering batman AO just had the dlc cancelled and refunds given I'd say it's vapor ware now for wiiu. Very troubling waters ahead for nintendo. I own a wiiu. I'm concerned.

Abriael1635d ago

Also, X has always been confirmed for 2014 AFAIK.

badz1491634d ago

this is the list from Nintendo themselves, remember? leaving out minor or smaller games is permissible but a Major release like Watch Dog? while Child of Light is there nonetheless...let's just hope this is just an error on their part. the Wii U can't take anymore beating like this!

Chrischi19881634d ago

It is funny, how far fanboyism goes. You do all, just so that Wii U owners cannot have Watchdogs, that is what makes you happy, not that you are able to play the game, no, to know others cant play the game, that makes you happy. It is so sad, that people first use sources like Gamestop Italy and now cannot let it go, after it was confirmed of being a bug in the system...

Abriael1634d ago

Are you comparing gamestop italy to nintendo?

Chrischi19881634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

Umm no, I am not, I just think it is funny, how persistent haters are, that watchdogs will not release on Wii U. It is like they search the whole web for it. I would take all that with a pinch of salt. Until Ubi themselves doesnt say otherwise, I dont think this discussion should go on. We get it, you haters got a PS4 and Watchdogs is supposed to be the next gen title and Wii U isnt next gen and so you dont want others to have fun playing the game, at least not if it is not the same plattform that you use.

Bayo2 wasnt on that list neither and I believe it is still coming, so dont use every little thing and make big news out of it, if it werent bad news for nintendo, it wouldnt become as big...

Beastforlifenoob1634d ago

Nobody is actively doing that it was just a series of unlikely coinicdences that scared acouple of folks.

E.g. if gamestop/whatever stopped taking preorders for PS4 and then it wasnt on sony's site a shitstorm would arise.

People arent doing this to hate on nintendo their simply noticing things

ritsuka6661634d ago

Here go again. it's not cancelled.

Jay70sgamer1634d ago

Not a complete list as you can see project cars is not listed either .......

Please don't do this Ubisoft Watch Dogs will be fun on Wii U

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

it will update

DoggyBiscuit1634d ago

The Wii U version is still shown on the official site

PockyKing1635d ago

The Kotaku story said that the game was still coming -

"[UPDATE 2, 2:58PM:] Good news, everyone! GameStop Italy and our U.S.-based source have both said that this was all a glitch in the system and that Watch Dogs is—or will soon be—available for pre-order for Wii U again in Italy and the U.S. Apologies for making everyone nervous about this and for not getting that all sorted prior to publishing the first time."

Abriael1635d ago (Edited 1635d ago )

It says preorders are not canceled. It's doesn't say that it's still coming. Until Ubisoft comments officially, we don't know.

PockyKing1635d ago (Edited 1635d ago )

Huh wha? If it wasn't coming they'd stop pre-orders of the game all together...they wouldn't just keep taking money knowing a product isn't coming anymore.

Edit: Hmm, whole situation just seems odd. Would be nice for Nintendo to just freakin come out and say, yes the game is still coming.

Abriael1635d ago (Edited 1635d ago )

PockyKing: amazon is taking preorders for games that we don't even know if they'll have an actual pay to play release (see Deep Down).

A preorder can be refunded.

The absence of the title in an official nintendo list (in all languages) is worrying, especially considering it includes equally "in the air" ubisoft titles.

badz1491634d ago


many store especially Amazon put up pre-orders for many things even games that are yet to be confirmed or have any release date. they do this all the time so that they can be first to collect as many customers possible when the thing get confirmed!

GTAV for pc is still having nothing official from R* yet there are already places taking pre-orders. and remember the Duke Nukem Forever pre-order story from the time they announced it years ago? it happens all the time.

Chrischi19881634d ago

Ubi doesnt need to say anything, because it is a confirmed bug of gamestop italy. I mean, what are the chances of Watchdogs being bugged out of gamestop italy and the game being really cancelled? You guys just cannot let it go.

-EvoAnubis-1634d ago (Edited 1634d ago )

To be fair, Amazon preorders mean almost nothing because they don't charge you anything until the product ships. So it's no problem for them to make a preorder of something available even if they don't really know when/if it's coming out; if it never sees the light of day, they just cancel the preorder and that's that.

Edit: Note that I'm not making any comment whatsoever on the whole Watch_Dogs on Wii U thing. I fundamentally don't care either way, but I'd prefer if the game came out for it.

Please don't open up this can of worms again. Everyone's really getting tired of it.

wonderfulmonkeyman1634d ago

Christ, it's like people are LOOKING for a reason to say that it's not coming to the Wii U at this point.
Do you all really want the game to skip the system THAT BADLY?
I feel sorry for you if so.

The sad thing is that not only the same few NT haters who you see all the time cycling on every NT article to spew vitriol and wishful thinking do this, it's also some of the Mods and Admins on this site. Good for them if it's a paid enthusiasm, but if not, it just all looks the more sad and pathetic.
