Over the past few weeks there has been a flurry of rumors surrounding the Wii U version of Ubisoft’s much anticipated open-world hacking game, Watch Dogs. The rumors started flying when a GameStop in Italy refused to accept pre-orders for the game, which turned out to be a glitch in their system. Then an ill-fated fake USPTO filing showed up, making it seem as if Ubisoft were abandoning the game entirely, leading the internet to wonder if the game was cancelled on all platforms.
Despite the setbacks, it looks like the Wii U version of Watch Dogs is still on track to be released with other platforms, according to a product schedule released by Ubisoft. The schedule shows a launch date of Spring 2014 for the title, which means the earliest we could see the game is April, though several retailers like Amazon and GameStop have listed the title as not releasing until June 30th.
