At least one developer has decided to abandon friend codes. Ubisoft, known for titles such as the upcoming WiiU Ghost Recon Online, has confirmed that they will be introducing their own social networking platform to keep players connected inside of their WiiU games.
Nintendo, on the other hand, has kept quiet on the topic. Is Ubisoft the rebel here, or did they passively leak information on Nintendo finally accepting that the friend code system is clumsy?
At the moment Ubisoft is developing 5 titles for the WiiU, one of them being Killer Freaks From Outerspace, which is a FPS that plays like it sounds.
