Ubisoft Says They Will Support Wii U This Christmas


Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says that the company will continue to support the Wii U this Christmas.ย Guillemot says that they expect sales to begin to take off this Christmas due to a number of high-profile Nintendo titles. He then said that the company will review things at the beginning of next year, which supposedly means that if Wii U sales don’t take off then they will reassess the situation.

“We will continue to support the Wii U this Christmas, and we’re expecting it to take off in terms of sales. And we’ll review what happened again at the beginning of next year.”

Thanks, Jamie M


  1. the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division the crew the division!!!

    1. Wait… They’re developing The Division? Fucking assholes! Bring that to the Wii U!

  2. That means that if Wii U sales don’t increase, forget about Ubi titles on Wii U 2014 on.

    Nice outlook.

    1. Well can you blame Ubisoft? They supported Wii U from day one and haven’t been very successful. If Wii U isn’t making them money than they simply won’t make games for it anymore. It is pretty easy to understand actually. ๐Ÿ’‹

      1. I did not say that they are guilty of something, or whatever. But I do see 3rd parties leaving Wii U to its own luck, which is pretty sad. Nintendo EAD and their 2nd parties haven’t been doing very well lately.

      2. Honestly why should Nintendo fans support them after that whole Rayman Legends deal.

  3. One game in the second half of the year?
    So Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed IV and Just Dance 2014 is one game?

    1. Yeah, my bad. I had Just Dance 2014 on the brain for some reason. Probably because it was the only game announced by Ubisoft at E3 2013 for Wii U.

  4. The reason they want to wait for sales to go up is so they can… I dunno, make money? If you brought a new flavor of lemonade to two lemonade stands, one with a huge line, and the other with nobody at it, which are you going to offer your great new flavor to and make a deal with?

  5. If Watch Dogs isn’t some stupid port it has my money. Also any other good Ubi game coming out will be in my Wii U all night long.

    1. Rayman Legends? -That game is going to be really good despite all the hate surrounding it. ๐Ÿ’‹

  6. yeah you hear that??? ubisoft says that they will support wii u this christmas. oh wait…. my heart. YOU BETRAYED US UBISOFT!!!!! rayman legends, oh my heart!!!!!! even if they are the only 3rd party pretty much supporting the wii u im not going to buy because im a retarded nintengeek to prove a point!!!!! (yeah have fun with showing them exactly what they thought, that 3rd parties cant sell on nintendo and that they are cutting support on the wii u.)

    1. We shall both destroy anyone who does this. Unless, you don’t want Ubisoft to support the Wii U.

  7. I think its a bit worrying that there is no ea support even if its only for sports and racing titles, unless Nintendo are going to rework super soccer from the snes I think they should be talking to ea and sorting something out, the Wii u seems to be going down the GameCube way but the GameCube seemed to have much more support than the Wii u has, which is surprising considering whe wii’s sales and popularity, its probably a result of nintendo’s arrogance.

  8. …im really doubting that ubi will continue to make games for the wii u next year. Please, everyone, help prove me wrong and actually buy the GOOD 3rd party games, not the crappy party/dance ones…

    1. Just Dance is an amazing franchise. I am still playing Just Dance 4 on my Wii U since it’s release. I love the workout routines they have. I can do 25 minutes of hardcore dancing and I really break a sweat!! :D ๐Ÿ’‹

      1. …ok @mammajynx , maybe there are a few exceptions (just dance), but most of those party and dance games are crap

    2. Shut up you dramatic twat. Industry talked rubbish about DAT U and you got sucked into it GROW SOME BALLS


    wii fit u. Mario. Donky kong. Zelda. Sonic. Mario and sonic winter games. 2d mario and luigi. Wii play u. Wonderful 101. Pikmin3.

    Shit is going to go thermal LOL ToTle DESTRUCTION OF PS4 RELEASE followed by mario kart and smash and bayaneta

  10. I am afraid with neither Super Smas Bros U or Mario Kart 8 coming out this Christmas, Wii U sales will not increase without a price cut. Also Nintendo needs a new Wii U Sports, everyone puts down those games but I had tons of fun playing Wii Sports Resort and Wii Sports. Nintendo needs to buy more developers.

  11. NOOOOOO! I don’t even want to THINK about Christmas. I hate it SO much!

  12. Well, unless Nintendo goes all out on advertising and promotion, as well as significant price drop, I think it’s obvious that Wii U is going to tank this Christmas. So I guess we’ll be saying goodbye to Ubisoft’s support then.

  13. That’s what they said with Rayman legends for launch day until they delay it twice. I hope the they don’t do the same shit with Watch Dogs or I’ll never forgive them
