At one point, of all the major AAA publishers, Ubisoft was the most vocal supporter of he Wii U. It had published Zombi U as an exclusive for the console's launch, and it even had Rayman Legends secured as an exclusive for a while before that partnership fell apart in the worst possibly fashion.
Nowadays, Ubisoft treats Nintendo like the same moldy piece of bread everyone does, arms length and nose pinched. Watch_Dogs may or may not ever be coming out for the console. Ubisoft says it will in November, but don't count us totally convinced. And now, CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed with Polygon that the company actually has a Wii U game finished and ready to release whenever it wants.
The only problem is that it doesn't want to. What's Ubisoft's beef? Well, not enough people own a Wii U to make releasing this game economically viable.
"We did adapt the number of products to the level of quantities that the machine did. So we will have Just Dance again which is well suited for the machine. We'll have Watch Dogs."
"We have another couple of products that we are waiting to launch, specifically we have one game that we wait for the machine to be more mass market to launch."
When pressed how many consoles must be sold to see this mystery game, Guillemot would not comment further.
"We don't have a number," he says. "We need the sales to increase so it becomes more and more mass market then we will have the volume that will justify massive marketing and TV marketing."
"We have a game that has been done for six months. It's on the shelf, waiting for more families to have the console."
Geez, way to just rub salt on the wounds you've been causing Nintendo fans. What did they ever do to you besides call you out something fierce on your scandalous Rayman Legends day.
How about it Wii U owners. Do you want that new game from Ubisoft? Well, you'll have to convince a friend and about five other people to pick up Nintendo's console for it to be worth Ubisoft's much too busy schedule.
