Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said the company "doesn't have a huge investment" in Wii U as it's relatively cheap to develop new games for the console and ports cost "less than a million euros".
Asked how much of Ubisoft's R&D budget has been allocated to Nintendo's new console, Guillemot told investors (via NeoGAF): "Out of seven games we are planning to launch five games are ports, so those are games for which there is a quite small reinvestment to do."
Ubisoft's two original Wii U titles are the most expensive to develop, but the monetary investment is still significantly less than that required for some of its other big multiplatform franchises.
"The two games that are original are ZombiU and Rayman Legends, so those ones of course are more expensive but we are not talking about games today, like we were spending on Ghost Recon or Assassin's Creed. So they are much smaller of cost.
"Because as we've always said when there is such an innovation the need is not to have big production value but to concentrate on the innovation This is what we are trying on Rayman and ZombiU."
