UPDATE: Watch Dogs is currently scheduled to be released between April to June of this year on all platforms except Wii U. Regarding the Wii U version's delay, CEO Yves Guillemot said “We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft."

ORIGINAL STORY: With the Wii U continuing to struggle in the marketplace, there has been buzz about the Wii U version of Watch Dogs being scrapped. Ubisoft today announced that the open-world hacking game will still release on Nintendo's console, but it will not release at the same time as the other versions (PS3, 360, Xbox One, PS4, PC).

Wii U owners get the shaft.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed the news during today's investor call but did not specify a date for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs.  We'll update this story when we receive more information.
