One of Ubisoft’s many upcoming Wii U games is Ghost Recon Online. It was one of the first Wii U games ever to be showcased, with a rather interesting trailer shown at E3 2011 (you can find that trailer below). We’ve previously known that Ubisoft was working on a PC version of the game as well, which will be free to play, and that the Ghost Recon Online Wii U version took a backseat in terms of development.
Now it appears that the Wii U version has been put “on hold”, according to producer Theo Sanders, who put it bluntly by saying:
“As of right now, the entire Ghost Recon team is focused on the PC version only. The Wii U version is on hold”.
Sanders added that the Wii U was a “cool platform to develop for”, and that they’ll explore the idea of continuing development of Ghost Recon Online for the new console. But as it is now, they’re 100% focused on the PC version in order to “get it right”, as Sanders put it. The game has been in development for the past two years at Ubisoft Shangai. Right it’s in the open beta stage on the PC.
