Rumours of Watch Dogs' Wii U cancellation have resurfaced after the game failed to appear on Nintendo's official 2014 release schedule.

The platform holder published a revised list of first and third-party titles headed to Wii U last night, following its Q3 2014 briefing – but Watch Dogs remained mysteriously absent.

Nintendo states that the software included in the schedule is "based on the information as of January 30, 2014".

Other Ubisoft titles, including Child of Light and 3DS releases Petz Sea Side and Petz Country Side all appear on the list, suggesting that the publisher's line-up has been taken into consideration.

Ubisoft chose not to confirm whether Watch Dogs was still heading to Wii U when contacted by this afternoon.

Rumours of the Wii U version's cancellation first surfaced last week after it was reported that GameStop Italy had begun cancelling pre-orders and had removed the title from its website.

The retailer is later reported to have said that the cancellations were caused by a "glitch".

This is either a troll/clickbait article or the author is ignorant and didn't research at all, in which case he shouldn't have written this. This rumor was debunked the moment it started when people realized that the Nintendo Release Schedule only had games listed with a solid release date. Watchdogs didn't have one at the time, so it wasn't listed. Good job, author, you've perpetuated a troll rumor.

I can't say I wouldn't have seen things like this coming, the Wii U has been doing very bad financially and it's just not in third party developers best interests to develop on it. It's a shame though, whilst I don't own a Wii U I would've loved to have owned one a little in the future once the game library had expanded, doesn't seem like that's going to happen all that much anymore!

I am actually looking forward for Watch Dogs on Wii U. If they really just cancelled it like that, without warning, I'm going to be pretty pissed off. I could buy it for PS3 instead, but screw it, I'll just skip on the game entirely. It's not like I won't have any games to play if I miss this one.
