GameStop Italy Telling Customers Watch Dogs Wii U Canceled?

Italian Nintendo blog Wii Italia is reporting that GameStop stores across Italy are telling customers that the Wii U version has been cancelled by Ubisoft. The rumour originally came from one of their readers who tried to pre-order the game at multiple GameStop stores in Italy, so the site decided to ring the stores and place pre-orders but were told that Ubisoft has cancelled the game on the platform. Hopefully Ubisoft should be able to clarify what’s going on with the Wii U version of Watch Dogs over the next few days.

    1. IKR!
      This game will be epic on WiiU! We must pray for this not to be true!
      All Though i’d be pissed if it happened i wouldnt be too surprised that it would skip WiiU. (but it musnt be true!… this game will be the one of my first WiiU games!)

      1. You haven’t bought a game for the system? Shows how much you support the Wii U & developers wasting their money porting games that nobodies going to buy.

      2. “One of my first games”
        Considering this comment infers that he may have 1 or 2 other games, I’m sure his Wii U isn’t collecting dust.

    2. i hope it’s not true, but my friend working at gamestop told me that several third party games that were going to come out for wii u are no longer in gamestop’s records, watch dogs being one of them. when my friend asked his manager what happened to those games, the manager said that gamestop had to take them off the list by order of the publishers, and no other explanation was given to gamestop by these publishers. they presume the games have been delayed or canceled. i have a bad feeling that they are canceled due to wii u’s low sales.

      6. You’re pretty much right as a generalisation. Maybe if third party games weren’t so shit that would change, but why would you buy a third party game for Wii U. The best 5 games at least are all developed by Nintendo. Hell, it’s even worse on 3DS, where probably the best 20 games are all developed by Nintendo. Luckily for them, they don’t have to compete with Nintendo on the other consoles.

  5. The Wii U is for babies so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it actually true that it was cancelled. And if this game does get released on the baby Wii U, to get an online game going on this all 5 people who will buy it on Wii U will have to get online at the same time lolololol.
    Anyways, Ubisoft already has stated that this game on Wii U looks closer to last gen systems (ps3 and xbox360). https://mynintendonews.com/2013/10/08/ubisoft-talks-watch-dogs-for-wii-u-explains-its-closer-to-current-gen/ That statement was said before the real next gen systems were launched.

  7. Might as well. Everyone else craps on Nintendo for no good reason. I knew it wouldn’t be long for Ubisoft did.

    Stuff like this doesn’t bother me anymore because these companies couldn’t be anymore transparent with their agenda’s. What bother’s me is Nintendo not do anything about it like buying 3rd parties that WANT to be bought by Nintendo to become 2nd parties and thus rendering 3rd party support null and void. If they really want to go at it alone (and at this point it seems like they don’t have a choice) their are very easy ways to go about it.

    1. Unfortunately Ubisoft forgot to ‘LAUNCH’ the Wii U with the game that gave everyone their first Wii U experience to start with.

      Postponing a finished game for nearly a year certainly cannot be glossed over. They have no room to point fingers. They are just as greedy as every other company.

      And Nintendo didn’t bring the cavalry “too late.” The people who are buying Wii Us now are the people that would have bought Wii U has the games that are available now been available then. People that aren’t buying Wii U’s now (that know about it) still won’t buy Wii U’s later when all the bombs have been dropped. The Wii U has twice as many games and better quality games than the PS4 and yet the PS4 outsells the Wii U week after week.

      Society has degraded to the level of people having being successful trained to value hype over substance.

  24. Not true. After checking their website I am not sure that they can be trusted as it seems like they won’t be selling every version of the game in all platforms. I believe that they have decided not to sell a version of the game in wii U (D1 to be concrete) there is the link http://www.gamestop.it/WiiU# If you put it in your basket and you review your order it will appear the word “cancelled” in Italian beside it. But the “Vigilante” version can be preorder as normal. see link http://www.gamestop.it/WiiU/Games/32021/watch-dogs-vigilante-edition I noticed absences in PS3 and Xbox 360 version so again, not to be trusted.

    This site should only publish “serious” news about Games and Consoles and stop contributing to this nonsense against Nintendo. No more patchers, no more anonymous sources… it should be more about real news and no gossips. How cool would have been if instead of posting this “thing” you would have posted your investigation about it (ie requesting information to Ubisoft directly, Gamestop, etc) and then write us back real findings, real news.

  25. The thing is… first this looks like another nonsense from media (nintendo haters? Yeah probably most of it)

    Second and even more importantly. Why? Why when I have just read a nice interview of ANOTHER indie developer who is bringing 2 games to Nintendo eShop in the future (one of them look really nice, see “master reboot”) again, why are we contributing to this Nintendo doom nonsense from here? See, this indie developer clearly stated that are trully happy with Nintendo, the Wii U console and its unique features offered by the gamepad. They also confirmed that they will continue working with Nintendo in the future.

    Nintendo and wii U, for so many reasons (some are bad, some are good) it is little by little becoming an indie paradise for the looks of it. Are this type of news avoided here on purpose?

    I guess they are eh…
