Ghost Recon Still Coming To Wii U

Ubisoft has reconfirmed that Ghost Recon Online is still heading to Wii U, despite it not being shown at Nintendo and Ubisoft’s E3 press conferences and booths this year. Ubisoft says that while the game is still coming to Wii U, it won’t arrive until the PC version is finished.

“Ghost Recon Online is being developed for the PC first. That was always the plan. The team is taking a little bit longer than they thought they would to get Ghost Recon Online to the level and quality that they want and that definitely has had an impact on how much time they’re able to spend on the Wii U version because we want to make sure we get it right.”

“If we start working on the Wii U too soon, we might end up wasting a lot of resources because the PC is a lot easier to test and learn with. Ghost Recon Online on the PC, we can test and learn with that and apply all the best benefits we learn onto the Wii U version to make sure that it’s a great Wii U game. That’s an unusual product for a console and we want to make sure we nail it. It really is because the PC team is a lot of the same guys that will work on the Wii U.”

- Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key

  1. At least there’s STILL hope for Ghost Recon: Online to be released for the Wii U. After the PC game is completed, the devs at Ubisoft will work on Nintendo’s new consoles including adding exclusive features on the Game Pad. Prepare to kick some butt when it’s ready for release after the U’s launch.

  2. I was worried about this game. Glad that it hasn’t fell under the radar. Can’t wait to play it on Wii U. It’s one of my most wanted shooters for the Wii U.
