Ubisoft CEO urges Nintendo gamers not to buy Assassin's Creed

Ubisoft isn't interested in the Nintendo Wii U, and wants to move ahead with the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One

Ubisoft doesn't plan to release any more games for the Nintendo Wii U, and Watch Dogs was the last title for the struggling Nintendo game console, according to Ubisoft.

Moving forward, Ubisoft plans to support the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii through the rest of 2014 and next year - but wants to push forward to utilize the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 game consoles.

 

"It's very simple," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot in an interview with Game Informer. "What we see is that Nintendo customers don't buy Assassin's Creed. Last year, we sold in very small numbers. What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360, but next year because they are selling very quickly, we'll move to the new hardware. After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems."

 

Both the Xbox One and PS4 were released last November, and represent 15 percent of total console sales - with the PS4 continually outselling the Xbox One.
