So Assassins Creed 4 DLC skipping wii u

#1wugeezyPosted 10/8/2013 9:14:12 AM
According to ign, Assassins Creed 4 DLC is skipping Wii u. I don't know why companies keep skipping dlc. Is Nintendo the problem? Nintendo needs to reach out to 3rd parties to help get those dlc packs on the eshop.

Perhaps it's because 3rd parties can't rely that everyone has enough space to download them? Or are they afraid it won't sell?

Didn't Ass Creed 3 get DLC for Wii U? Then why not this one?

Indeed, also like Injustice, there is no season pass, but eventually they release the DLC

This. All the DLC came out on-time for Wii U with AC3, but no season pass. Lack of a season pass for AC4 is no reason to assume DLC is axed altogether.

This is about AC 4. How is this topic a fail?

In theory there might be a chance that individual dlc might come as opposed to a season pass but the article didn't say that.

You don't logic good, do you? the article you linked did not say " NO DLC FOR WII U!", it does not serve as proof of your unlikely hypothesis. Now the presence of DLC for AC 3 sets a precedent, one that any logical person would assume they will follow unless they state otherwise. There was not a season pass for AC 3, yet they got all the DLC, what logical reason makes you assume AC 4 will be any different?

I "logic" just fine. If you look at the heading, it says "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag DLC and Season Pass Announced
Available on all platforms, except for Wii U"

It doesn't just say season pass. Granted it could just be a misleading header or just poorly written by ign. All I was saying is that if it is not coming to Wii u Nintendo should try to get it to come to their platform. And I agree that precedent has been set and am hoping they continue it, though nothing is confirmed that it will.
