Watch Dogs (5)

The future of the Wii U version of Watch_Dogs has been in question for a while now, but owners of Nintendo’s console can rest easy knowing the game is still coming.

In an interview with Red Bull Games, Watch_Dogs Creative Director Jonathan Morin had a status update on the Wii U version:

Right now [the Wii U version is] currently being done, but I’m not directly involved. We wanted to finish all the platforms that we are currently shipping. We needed those guys to get [the shipping versions] finished, and the good news now is that they’re all fully focused on the Wii U version, making sure it gets the attention it deserves to make it the best version it can be.

The team hasn’t set a date for this particular edition, but with the other editions of the game complete, the Wii U has become the primary focus. As for the delay that caused all this in the first place?

“What was happening is that the game was doing a good job at encouraging the player to explore the possibilities of hacking, but sometimes they’d go really deep into the manipulation and get really creative about things – it would create a trigger and unexpected results,” Morin said.

“We decided to step back a bit and take the time to define how we could perform very surgical and precise ways to fix the problems.”

Watch_Dogs hits shelves May 27 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One and sometime in the future for Wii U.
