Watch Dogs Wii U Still in Development, Set to Launch in November


Wii U gamers missed out on Watch Dogs when the game originally launched on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One back in May, but even though Ubisoft has cooled off on its third-party support of the platform of late, the open-world hacking game is still on for a release on Nintendo’s console.

In fact, Watch Dogs for Wii U has an official street date, with the game now confirmed for a November 18th launch.

Ubisoft Bucharest is in charge of Wii U development, with help from Ubisoft Montreal. Regarding features specific to the Wii U hardware, the game will display an interactive map of Chicago on the GamePad during gameplay, while the GamePad will also allow for Off-TV Play. No other details have been announced at this time.
