Rumour: Watch Dogs and Rainbow Six coming to Wii U; Update: Aliens Wii U NOT cancelled



A new rumour is suggesting that Ubisoft is bringing both Rainbow Six: Patriots and Watchdogs to Wii U.

Nintendo Enthusiast has the news, although no source, however this news was hinted at yesterday by a GameStop listing, slating the release for the same day on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. So perhaps it's not beyond reason.

One of the sites other rumours is that Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U has been cancelled. Apparently EB Games in Canada has confirmed this to the site, while a few other retailers including Amazon.com have also delisted it. At this time the game still seems to be listed everywhere in the UK.

We contacted SEGA for comment, but we've been told that they are not aware of this and will get back to us if there was anything else to say.

Update

SEGA has told ShopTo that Aliens on Wii U has not been cancelled.

Wii U's Aliens: CM getting cancelled? Damn shame there. It could have been a better experience on this platform, there was always hope (Hadley had it!). Watch Dogs on the Wii U is intriguing - would be nice to hear positives for the Wii U rather than damnation at its door every day! ;) Rainbow Six game? Move on, Soldier!

Watch Dogs could be good on the Wii U and on the PS4 'touchpad' that is rumoured, and if used on XBOX Smartglass. As a gadget for certain things that seem available in the world.

After all the bad stuff I've heard about it, that's probably for the best as far as Wii U owners are concerned. It's apparently nothing like the demo.

Hmmm. I know Aliens CM had bad reviews on PS3/Xbox 360 but I've still got the Wii U version preordered on here...if it's cancelled, I'll just have to buy something else. On one hand it's a shame but on the other, it's probably no great loss if it's as bad as I've heard. I paid full price for Alien vs Predator on the Xbox 360 a couple of years back and I was gutted, it was absolutely awful, one of the crappiest FPS games I'd played in years.

I had completely forgot about Patriots. Has anything been released in terms of gameplay footage and game info since the E3 trailer?

The reason I'm looking forward to the Wii U version of Aliens: CM - the motion-sensor has to be incorporated into the gamepad - surely? Would add a sense of being there!

That's true, would definitely make you feel like you are there

Rainbow Six isn't out of the question for Wii U but god knows when it'll actually come out. Watch Dogs I would not bet on though. As to Aliens, even if the Wii U version isn't officially cancelled, it is officially postponed "indefinitely", and given how badly relations between Sega and Gearbox have soured the past few days, I honestly would not bet on it seeing the light of day at this point... I know it's probably not going to be much of a loss, but the Wii U is starving for games of any kind right now, so it's probably not good news.

So not cancelled after all? Looks like Shopto will be sending me a copy after all then. :) Just hope it's not as bad as what I've been hearing. I went for the Wii U version because I thought it would be better played with the Gamepad, bit worried that Gearbox don't seem to have had much of a hand in developing the single player campaign though if rumours are to be believed.

Watchdogs has been the 1 game i've been really excited about since E3 be interested to see how much of the content shown back then actually makes it into the final version as it did seem really ambitious

Desperate attempt to win back Wii U owners by Ubisoft.

Not really desperate, like.

Between Ubisoft and Wii U owners right now I don't think it's Ubisoft who are the desperate ones. Wii U needs Ubi more than Ubi needs Wii U.

Even if they say not cancelled, we shall wait and see. Maybe a lot of work is still left to port, and based on reviews of the game on other consoles, might not be worth there time.

How exciting yet more games that will be released elsewhere before the Wii U, pah!!!!

You're forgetting Ubisofts multiplatform release policy, the one that has held Rayman back, it'll be interesting to see how strictly they stick to it when the boot is on the other foot.
