Ubisoft has been supporting the Wii U nicely ever since the release of the latest Nintendo console back in November with both ports like Assassin’s Creed III and all new, original productions. One of the most anticipated titles was Rayman Legends: the game was supposed to be released together with the console but it’s been delayed twice. With the announcement of the second delay also came the news that the game was going to be released on Ps3 and Xbox 360: the reason behind the decision was to be able to give the game to a wider audience.
It’s pretty obvious that Ubisoft is probably not too happy about the Wii U games sales due to the fact that the current install base is pretty low, especially compared to consoles on the market for over 6 years: for this reason Ubisoft is really looking forward to a Wii U price drop.
Alain Corre of Ubisoft Europe stated in a recent interview with Edge that the Wii U will eventually find its public but dropping the price will make everything a bit faster: Nintendo has stated that the console has sold below expectations and a price drop would definitely improve the situation. With less machine sold the software obviously doesn’t sell well: given the Rayman Legends situation, we shouldn’t be expecting more Wii U third party exclusive as long as this low sales situation persists.
