A release date has finally been revealed for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs. Ubisoft made the announcement that on November 18th the game will launch in North America and November 21st in the U.K.Watch Dogs originally launched back in May of this year, setting Ubisoft records for first day sales and moving over 4 million copies in a week. The delays the game suffered did not appear to impact sales when it finally arrived on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
While Wii U owners have had to wait even longer for Watch Dogs, Ubisoft has been using that time to polish the game. The Wii U version will feature an interactive map and Off-Tv Play via the Wii U gamepad.
While I am sure the delay of Watch Dogs sucked for Wii U owners, it is good that Ubisoft is still releasing the game and didn’t cancel it completely. With comments made by Ubisoft representatives, it appears this could be the last mature title that the Wii U receives. Hopefully some of the features implemented with the gamepad will offer unique gameplay mechanics for the Wii U compared to other versions of the title.
