For the last week or so there has been a lot of discussion and rumors that we may see some Wii U games before the launch of the system on November 18th. Activison has assured us that their games will be out on launch.
Activision PR says the dates are wrong and that Black Ops II is available on November 18th
Ubisoft has taken a little different angle on Wii U games release.
“We have communicated November 18; and we also know that our launch titles may be available prior to that date. But in case something changed, we thought it best to stick with communicating the launch date date. So, on November 13, indeed, Ubisoft titles may be on store shelves.”
I think releasing some games before the Wii U actual launch is a great way for some to budget and afford more games.
