While Ubisoft has already made plans to reduce support for the the Wii U until they see Wii U sales starting to pick up, they don’t feel like they took a risk in fully supporting the Wii U.  They also made sure to emphasize that they still remain confident that the Wii U will find its audience, and that increased support would trigger them to put more of their games onto the platform in the future.

Senior Vice President of Sales, Tony Key: “We did not take a big risk with all those launch titles on Wii U. [Wii U game] development isn’t expensive — some Wii U games are versions of games for other platforms, like Assassin’s Creed. And we continue to invest in that system. We have just as many titles coming on Wii U this year as we did after launch, because the system isn’t as resource-intensive to make games for it. We continue to believe that the Wii U will find its audience. We saw some good games [during Nintendo Direct this week]. We’re confident that the Wii U is a good place for us to do business, and we can make money there.”
