Are you sure Ubisoft? It’s an M rated title an might not sell a bazillion copies on the Wii U. I guess you can always forget about it after it launches and neglect to support it with DLC.

it’s understandable that they won’t support it after it releases if it doesn’t sell well… I’m sorry I want the Wii U to get developer support as much as anyone but if I was running a business I wouldn’t waste money on something that’s just not gonna sell.
all we can do is buy the game, and if Ubisoft sees it’s sold well enough they will get us the dlc.

My issue is that rather than make it more appealing to buy M rated games on the WiiU, Ubi has made it less appealing; in turn it has become a self fulfilling prophesy of sorts.

Watch Dogs for the Wii U has been pushed back again for December 12, 2014. I went down today to buy this game, I had it Preordered. And the clerk said it has been pushed back again.
