Ubisoft Announces 5 games for E3 2014 But Nintendo Platforms Won’t Be Getting Any

By on

Ubisoft has announced that they will be bringing at least 5 games to E3 2014. Nintendo fans will be disappointed though, as none of the games are to be released for the Nintendo platform.

According to Ubisoft, they will be showcasing the games as well as some other surprises at their booth. E3 is scheduled for June 9 at 6pm ET.

Assassin?s Creed Unity ? the next installment to the open world franchise, is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Windows PC.

Far Cry 4 ? coming to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Windows PC.

The Crew ? the driving game by Ivory Tower is headed to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Windows PC. Android and iOS companion apps will be coming as well.

Tom Clancy?s The Division ? the massively multiplayer third person shooter by Massive Entertainment is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Windows PC.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War ? the World War 1 puzzle adventure game by Ubisoft Montpellier is coming to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the Windows PC. The expected release date is on June 25.

The reason for Nintendo not getting any love is most likely due to the Nintendo Wii U?s struggling sales. Since the Wii U launched, Ubisoft has released several games for the console. Ubisoft?s E3 2013 lineup included Just Dance 2014, Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, and Tom Clancy?s Splinter Cell: Blacklist and all of these games had Wii U versions.

Ubisoft seems to also be affected by Nintendo?s sales slump. Rayman Legends, for example, was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive, but Ubisoft delayed the game in order to port it to multiple consoles.

As much as this may disappoint Nintendo fans, it is an understandable move by Ubisoft because if the console sales suffer, so do their games. Ubisoft is supportive and positive though that ‘Nintendo can stage a comeback’. They stated that: ?Nintendo is a company that has proven in the last 30 years that they are able to fascinate tens of millions of gamers?.
