CEO Yves Guillemot says Nintendo customers just aren't interested in mature games like Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs.

Ubisoft done making mature games for Wii U

Apparently owners of Nintendo's troubled Wii U console don't play Assassin's Creed games. So it doesn't appear to be getting any more of them.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that, following the release of Watch Dogs later this year, the company won't release any more mature-themed games for Nintendo's system, instead opting for more casual affairs.

Talking with Game Informer, Guillemot explained his decision. "It's very simple," he stated. "What we see is that Nintendo customers don't buy Assassin's Creed. Last year, we sold in very small numbers. What we see is that they are very interested in Just Dance, very interested by other kinds of games. So what we are trying to do is to focus more on the types of games they are interested in."

And apparently none of those games are mature. "(Watch Dogs) is coming to Wii U…it will be the only mature game we publish on it."

Wii U game sales only calculated for three percent of the company's total for the last fiscal year, which is a stark number considering the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 generated six and nine percent in just a month and a half of release. Watch Dogs will release sometime this fall for Wii U.
