UK retailer GAME has confirmed that Ubisoft is no longer planning to offer Dedsec or Vigilante editions of Watch Dogs for Wii U. Both special editions contain a number of bonus items, including a collector’s box, official soundtrack, Investigation Bonus and ATM Hack Boost. Ubisoft recently revealed that the upcoming Wii U version of the game won’t include DLC or a season pass. Watch Dogs arrives November 20th on Wii U.
“It is with great disappointment that we can confirm that unfortunately on this occasion Ubisoft will not be producing either the Dedsec or Vigilante editions on Wii U,” GAME said in an email to customers.
The creators behind the well-received Child of Light in the Wii U eShop have revealed that they are now part of a new core team at Ubisoft. The team will be tasked with tackling a brand new project that will no doubt be equally as exciting. Hopefully it will be released on the Wii U eShop once it’s been completed.
“The group behind Ubisoft Montreal’s Child of Light has been installed as a core development team at the studio and will explore a new project, CVG can reveal.”
“We are super happy with Child of Light. The team did a good job and the game had a great reception. We were proud to deliver something new and unique – a lot of people were surprised that Montreal was delivering this kind of game.”
The official Ubisoft Twitter account has confirmed that the forthcoming Watch Dogs on Wii U won’t be getting downloadable content or a season pass. The company pulled the aforementioned tweet, but that didn’t stop a Reddit user from posting it. Ubisoft announced that the Watch Dogs Bad Blood DLC is being released today for all the platforms that the game is currently released on.
Ubisoft Montreal’s vice president of creative, Lionel Raynaud, has assured online gaming publication CVG that the next Watch Dogs game will be an improvement on the mixed original which came out in May. However, Raynaud was quick to point out that they need to be careful about changing things that players of the game actually liked. The Wii U version is schedule for release November 18th.
“We had a lot of flaws in the replayability of gameplay loops and you could feel that the game was a first iteration. At the time, there was clear potential but it was not easy to know it was going to become the franchise that it is today.”
“For the case of Assassin’s Creed 1, the reception was critically not perfect but the commercial reception was good. Also it felt like something that was fresh and appropriate for a new generation. The feeling was good for the future of the franchise, because the concept was smart in the way that it had infinite possibilities in terms of time travelling.”
