In a series of tweets, Watch Dogs creative director Jonathan Morin tries as best as he can to explain why the Wii U version of Watch Dogs has been delayed until well after other versions of the game are released on May 27. On Monday, Ubisoft confirmed a Watch Dogs release date of May 27 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, with the Wii U version set to "release at a later date."
After several fans asked Morin on Twitter why the Wii U version would take so long, Morin responded by saying that "We needed to focus on the overall experience and some Wii U staff was needed for this. Logistic."
Morin also confirmed that the game will feature multiplayer open world free roaming for up to eight players.
Further details about the game's multiplayer features are expected to be revealed this evening when the Watch Dogs development team hosts a live Q&A on Ubisoft's Twitch.tv channel. Morin, lead game designer Danny Bélanger and animation director Colin Graham will be taking questions from the community.
