One of the highly anticipated franchise games by Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has recently come under spotlight regarding the teasers of its upcoming DLCs. However, the latest development tells that the DLCs will be missing on the Nintendo Wii U console.

Gamereactor, one of the Europe's leading game magazines, revealed the news after speaking to Ubisoft and has confirmed the absence of new single-player story, the Kraken ship pack or the new multiplayer characters on the  Wii U console.

It is still not confirmed whether all the DLCs or just one of the DLCs will be skipping the struggling Japanese console, reports Ubergizmo.

Either way, the step will add to the ongoing woes of the Nintendo, who was running in losses a couple of months ago. It has been also noted recently that Batman: Arkham Origins' being available for Wii U, skipped its multiplayer mode for the console offering half support.

Gamers can now only hope that Activision, who will be releasing the popular Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U will not take a similar step.

Along with Nintendo, Ubisoft is also dipped in its own share of worries, as the developer has revealed that the Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is expected to sell about 10 million units, which is about 20 percent lesser than its previous iteration, Assassin's Creed 3 that sold 12.5 million units during the first six months.

Despite the low sales expectations, Ubisoft believes that AC4 will be "among the highest performers of the year."

It has also been understood that Ubisoft has advanced the release date of the game for Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in UK from Nov. 1 to Oct. 29 (three days).

The next-gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One), Wii U and PC versions will follow on Nov. 22, reports Videogamer.
