I’d take this with a pinch of salt for the moment a least, but this morning I received a very curious and worrying email from Amazon explaining that my preorder bonus for the WiiU version of Watch_Dogs had changed and that my multiplayer pre-order bonus had been cancelled by Ubisoft, and that now I would be receiving a single player pre-order bonus instead.
Why would Ubisoft axe the multiplayer bonus for the WiiU version unless that was no longer going to be a part of that version of the game?
Normally i wouldn’t have thought to much about this but the removal of online features and multiplayer support seems to be a growing trend on Nintendos platform.
Most recently multiplayer features were omitted from Arkham Origins on WiiU and Ubisoft themselves recently announced that Assassins Creed IV would not be receiving any of the game’s planned DLC on Nintendo’s home console.
We’ve reached out to Ubisoft to hopefully aswage our fears, we’ll keep you updated if and when we hear back.
