Assassin’s Creed 3 On The Wii U?
Excellent news for gamers earlier today with Ubisoft announcing the release of Assassin’s Creed 3 scheduled for the 30th of October 2012. “We will push the title a lot because it’s a fantastic product that the team has been working for three years what we have seen is just fabulous”, said Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot during an investor call.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations was the fourth highest selling game of November 2011 with an estimated 1.26 million sales, as of this month the game has sold 7 million copies worldwide.
The million dollar question is; Will it be on the Nintendo Wii U?
Nintendo should really being pushing for it. Assassin’s Creed is one of the best franchises in gaming at the moment, securing a release on the Wii U would show gamers Nintendo are serious about the Wii U being a viable option to the next Playstation and Microsoft consoles.
Ubisoft haven’t been the most straight forward with regards to their support of the Wii U, upon the Wii U release Yves Guillemot had the following to say:
“I love that you have a screen very close to you,you can get information and send it as well. But you don’t have to learn too many things.I think it’s sending the message that the new transition is going to happen – and we’re going to have new machines coming soon”.
“Our teams are excited to take advantage of this new console. This controller is so revolutionary we think it will bring a lot of new gamers into the industry, I think social gaming is the next step in our industry, and I think the screen is going to make it easy for everybody”.
Unfortunately those words haven’t translated into confirmation of many Ubisoft-developed Wii U games other than Ghost Recon, titles such as Far Cry 3 look as if they will be snubbed.
However, we believe Assassin’s Creed 3 will find its’ way on to the Wii U, as mentioned earlier Ubisoft have planned for a release on the 30th of October. We have narrowed the Wii U release date down to around November which would coincide nicely with the release of Assassin’s Creed 3. The dates of the Wii U release and Assassin’s Creed 3 release doesn’t really provide enough evidence of a Wii U title but Guillemot has labelled the game “the biggest launch in Ubisoft history”. Surely the ‘biggest launch’ in Ubisoft’s history will mean releases on all major consoles? After all , Ubisoft are supporting the PS Vita launch with 5 titles!
Do you think we will see Assassin’s Creed 3 on the Wii U?
