Lamenting the loss of third party support

I know quite a few Nintendo console owners who only play first and second party titles, but consoles live or die by their third party support and the lack of support is a major problem which has afflicted Nintendo since the days of the N64 and there won’t be more support from third parties until the install base is high enough to take a chance and come out financially secure.

The latest to go is Assassin’s Creed, despite Ubisoft being heavily invested in Wii U it seems things are not as smooth as they could be, as there are two entries in Ubisoft’s flagship series one for PS4/XBone in development and one rumored for PS3/XB360 and neither are hinted to be coming for Nintendo’s latest console. No matter how you feel about the long running series it is hugely successful and not having the franchise on your system is another reason to not purchase your console.

Will this be the last of the series on Wii U?

Hopefully with Mario Kart 8 being released in a few months and E3 not far after that Nintendo will announce something that will give the Wii U the shot of life it needs, but how do you feel about the current situation with third party support?
