According to creative director Jonathan Morin, the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is visually in between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. According to Morin, the graphics are slightly tweaked but it’s closer to current-gen systems than next-gen.
“If you pump the PC to its maximum there are things in the filtering and rendering that I think are possible on high-end PCs that are pretty amazing. Wii U is pretty much in-between – it’s neither of them, not current-gen, maybe closer to current-gen than next-gen.”
What do you think of this revelation? Does this change your opinion of the game at all? Will you still be getting it on Wii U, or perhaps a different console? Let us know in the comments.
Watch Dogs will be released on November 19th in North America and November 22nd for Europe.
