Ubisoft CEO backs away from Nintendo exclusives after Wii U game flops

Ubisoft CEO Wii U

Things are still not looking very good for Nintendo’s Wii U video game console. Recent numbers show that even Sony’s PS Vita is now crushing Wii U sales, and game makers are starting to distance themselves from the new console. Electronic Arts said it doesn’t plan to make any of its next-generation games available on the Wii U for the time being, and now Ubisoft is the latest company to begin to distance itself from the struggling console.

In a recent interview with GamesIndustry, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that “ZombiU,” one of the Wii U exclusive titles that was featured alongside the console when it debuted last November, is “not even close” to making a profit because sales have been so low. As a result, Ubisoft has decided not to make a sequel. Beyond that, however, Guillemot said that its upcoming game “Rayman Legends,” which was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive as well, will launch for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PS Vita later this year.

“We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience,” Guillemot said. “We hope it will take off. At the moment, we’ve said ‘let’s do through Christmas and see where we are from there.'”
