Watch Dogs delayed on Wii U

Watch Dogs will be delayed on Wii U after all, Ubisoft announced today. During an earnings call, the company recommitted to its spring release target for the vast majority of systems, but said the Wii U version will come "at a later date."
Rumors began swirling when fans noticed that Wii U pre-orders from GameStop were being cancelled, which the company subsequently chalked up to a "glitch." Today's announcement (via Kotaku) sheds a little more light on the subject, as it sounds like the Wii U version isn't outright nixed, but definitely isn't a top priority. It's notably the only one to be outsourced, but Ubisoft had promised its quality would be better than the PS3 and 360 versions.
The PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One editions--everything but the Wii U version--are still due in spring as scheduled.
