Although Ghost Recon Online was noticeably absent from this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, there’s no need for prospective Wii U owners to worry.

During an interview with IGN, Tony Key, Ubisoft‘s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated that the competitive shooter will make its console debut after its PC launch has occurred.

“Ghost Recon Online is being developed for the PC first. That was always the plan,” he said. “The team is taking a little bit longer than they thought they would to get Ghost Recon Online to the level and quality that they want and that definitely has had an impact on how much time they’re able to spend on the Wii U version because we want to make sure we get it right.

“If we start working on the Wii U too soon, we might end up wasting a lot of resources because the PC is a lot easier to test and learn with. On the PC, we can test and learn with that and apply all the best benefits we learn onto the Wii U version to make sure that it’s a great Wii U game. That’s an unusual product for a console and we want to make sure we nail it. It really is because the PC team is a lot of the same guys that will work on the Wii U.”
