Ubisoft: No plans to release Far Cry 3 on Wii U

Key shooter not likely to appear on Nintendo's new console

One of Nintendo's closest publishing partners will not be releasing its key upcoming FPS on the Wii U.


A Ubisoft spokesperson, Henri Guay, has told CVG that the company has "no plans to release Far Cry 3 on Wii U".

The publisher is backing Nintendo's system with a string of key titles, from Assassin's Creed 3 to Just Dance 4, ZombiU and Rayman Legends. Each of these will launch on November 30th to coincide with the Wii U release date in the UK.

Far Cry 3, in the final phase of production at several Ubisoft studios, uses an advanced version of the Dunia engine developed by Crytek. It is scheduled for release on November 30th.
