Has Ubisoft cancelled the Wii U version of Watch Dogs?

Ubisoft has no comment for the moment

GameStop has stopped taking pre-orders for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs prompting rumours that Ubisoft has cancelled the game on Nintendo's struggling home machine.

To make matters worse, they are telling customers that the reason they are not taking pre-orders and cancelling existing ones because Ubisoft has canned the Wii U version completely.

All Ubisoft would say to VG247 on the subject was, “We have nothing to comment at this stage.” Retailers here in the UK are still taking pre-orders for the Wii U version of Watch Dogs. Has Ubisoft cancelled the Wii U version of Watch Dogs?

GameStop has done this before refunding pre-orders for The Last Guardian stating that Sony had cancelled the game only for Sony to turn round and say that they had done nothing of the sort. It's certainly not arrived as yet but both the game's creator Fumito Ueda and Sony have confirmed that the game is still in development.

Thanks The Escapist.
