Ubisoft is (probably) working on a Wii U MMORPG

A set of job listings for Ubisoft Quebec would certainly lead you to believe so. The set was tweeted by Emile Gauthier, a “communication guy” at the company, as a public call for talent to work on an upcoming “AAA MMORPG game”.

Sounds like we’ve got an announcement from Ubisoft to look forward to in the future. The fact that it’s supposedly a triple-A title could mean that it will be a particularly important entry in one of Ubisoft’s flagship franchises. A well-made MMO could also serve as the ultimate demonstration of the Wii U’s online capabilities.

    From what I’ve heard of the Wii U’s online it sounds perfect for MMORPGs, the more restrictive PSN and XBL aren’t too friendly for them. It’s good to know that big developers like Ubisoft are having such confidence in the Wii U, even though I’ve not been too happy with some of their other decisions over the years.

    I don’t see the point in publishing such extrapolations. Ubisoft is working on an MMORPG…. where is there the slightest indication that this is for the Wii U. Reminder: Ubisoft puts out 2 dozen games a year and there’s several consoles out there (including some we know nothing about just yet)…

      The link in the tweet is for job listing for the MMO, and some of those jobs listed are talking about working with the Wii U.
