Ubisoft today announced their quarter one results for 2014. The report was dominated by news that the companyís recently released Watch Dogs has shipped eight million copies worldwide.
Sales for the first quarter of 2014-15 came to Ä360 million, up 374% (or 386% at constant exchange rates) compared with the Ä76 million recorded for first-quarter 2013-14. The first quarter sales figure was higher than the target of approximately Ä310 million announced when Ubisoft released its full-year 2013-14 results. The company also provided a breakdown of sales via platform and as you can see the Wii U didnít generate very many. However, Ubisoft is still bringing out Watch Dogs to the platform later this year.

Edit: I put together a spreadsheet of all Ubisoft games released from the start of Wii U's life (2012) to 2014, including release year and platform(s)

whats the point of buying a subpar no DLC version of a game for the wii u when you can get it on ps3/ps4/360/x1?

Well if they released games on the system the numbers would go up.

Oh, I know! The gamepad! It's ok to sacrifice framerate, graphical fidelity, AI, and online features, we have a gamepad~!

The interesting thing here is they did make those games for the Wii U that were released on the other consoles during this time (except Watch Dogs). In addition, there were even an exclusive that was only on the Wii U (ZombiU), but even pre-Watch Dogs sales show poor Wii U sales

"You guys realize that this chart includes ALL of Ubisoftís games including the ones that are not released on Nintendo platforms right? They should breakdown the sales of individual games on individual consoles." - comment on mynintendonews.com

Things tend to go that way when you don't release anything worthwhile on the platform

Got too many games on my PS3, and don't have the other systems. Plus I'm curious as to how the Wii U version implements the GamePad; I hope it will add a new dimension to the gameplay as well as be 100% optional since I have a Pro Controller.
