You might have read rumours swirling around the internet today that suggest the Wii U will be out on November 18. Multiple gaming websites, such as GameSpot and Eurogamer, have reported on the rumour, which originated at the website Wii U Daily. Wii U Daily says it obtained an email from a Japanese retailer that confirms the release date.
One glance at Wii U Daily should be enough to make you question the website’s veracity. The site claims that Rockstar said it would bring Grand Theft Auto V to Wii U in 2013, citing a “financial report” from the Manhattan-based developer. No other website has reported on this “financial report”, nor is it available on either Rockstar or parent company Take-Two’s websites.
Based on this information, we’re sceptical of this website’s latest report. Although November 18 certainly sounds like a plausible release date for the Wii U, we’re not buying this one without better proof.
We reached out to both Wii U Daily and Nintendo for comment, and will update should either party choose to respond.
