Watch Dogs listed for Wii U at GameStop

Ubisoft's new IP might really be on "all home consoles."

GameStop is listing Watch Dogs, Ubisoft’s upcoming hack-the-city open-world adventure, for Wii U alongside PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions.

The listing would certainly support the “all home consoles” GameStop poster that leaked online last week. Officially, however, Ubisoft has only confirmed the game for a 2013 release on consoles and PC.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Cool. Shame that it couldn’t get in on the Wii Ubi exclusivity goodness like its forebears. The concept only perfectly lends itself to Wii U…

  • Catachthonian

    i thought it supposed to be on the next gen consoles but oh well, let me have it now.

  • Milyc

    So we can assume Assassin’s Creed is over and done for this gen and will be getting no new entry this year?

    • Raiyu

      They already announced a new Assassin’s Creed for this year.

    • Prodigy-X

      They already confirmed AC IV for this year.

      • Milyc

        Was it really confirmed for this year? For next-gen? Won’t it clash with this game?

        • Prodigy-X

          That’s what I was thinking but I guess they don’t care but both could be next and current gen.

          • Milyc

            Wasn’t the new AC confirmed for this fiscal year, meaning it can launch anytime before March 2014?

            • Raiyu

              Yes, but lets be real here. Ubisoft isn’t going to miss those Christmas sales.

              Especially with the launch of two new systems to capitalize on.

              • Milyc

                I still don’t quite get how they are gonna clash this and ACIV in the next holidays. Maybe Watch Dogs for this gen and ACIV for next gen? Could they have prepared a massive AC game for next gen this early? If Watch Dogs is current gen, maybe the footage at E3 was running on PCs?

                • BigDix

                  They haven’t said that it’s ACIV, nor is it likely that it ultimately ends up being such. It’s almost definitely going to be a more derivative release like Brotherhood or Revelations. In light of that, one may still consider Watch Dogs to be Ubi’s heavy-hitter.

                  • Raiyu

                    They’ve said its a new story, new protagonist, new era. It’s not going to be like Brotherhood and Revelations.

                    I think its safe to assume it’ll be AC IV

                    • BigDix

                      So you think those trappings necessitate a numbered entry? We’ll just have to see. It would be bucking the trend if the main games became annualized.

                • Raiyu

                  They’ll most likely be cross-gen. But we can’t exactly nail down possible dates or possibilities without new information on the new systems.
