“We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft”.

Explains a lot of things.

Best thing is it confirms the port is still happening!

Well, I guess a late version is still better than no version.

I feel that Ubisoft doesn't have confidence in the game overall. Multiple delays are generally a bad thing.

Will sell horribly for sure now. It was already going to underperform on Wii U and delaying it and making it a late port seals the deal. Sales will be awful.

I think its a good thing, better than releasing unfinished games like EA!!!

Why? Is the Wii U, which has been out over a year, significantly harder to develop on than X1 and PS4 which have just been released? If the last gen versions are fine then why is the Wii U proving so difficult?

It also shows Ubi were full of crap when they delayed Rayman Legends last year because they wanted a simultaneous release, now they've done the exact opposite.

Late release = poor sales. It's really a chicken and egg situation with Wii U 3rd party support.

They may as well cancel it, this makes no sense this ensures it will be a sales disaster.

3rd party companies  showing their love for the Wii U as usual.
