In a recent interview, Alex Amancio, the creative director at Ubisoft, commented about why there was no Wii U version of Assassin’s Creed Unity for the Wii U. In short, rather than blame the decision on poor sales of previous Wii U iterations, Amancio stated that the reason that Unity will not be coming to the Wii U is due to the fact that it is not able to run on the console.

\’\’It couldn’t, it really couldn’t. I mean this is why we from the beginning, this was going to be a new-gen-only title, because the crowds aren’t aesthetic, they actually have impact. If we did anything to hinder that or to reduce that it would have a detrimental impact, it wouldn’t be the same experience. I don’t think that would be fair to fans, to sell the same game but with different levels of experience. Even the seamless nature of the series and the scale of the game right, we couldn\’t do that. We never load Paris. It wouldn\’t be possible, in our minds we’d be cheating fans by providing a lesser version of the same game.\’\’

Do you think that Amancio is being truthful in his answers regarding the newest Assassin’s Creed entry, or do you think that the game could truly run on the Wii U? Make sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
