Ubisoft working on a "AAA MMORPG"

Could it be a Wii U title?

Ubisoft is currently developing a "AAA MMORPG", according to a recruitment call from the publisher.

As spotted by a NeoGAF poster, Ubisoft communications exec Emile Gauthier Tweeted that the publisher's Quebec studio is currently staffing up for the unnamed game, and called for interested parties to head on over to its recruitment site.

No additional information on the project is given out, though the site also advertises other vacancies for network programmers on a AAA Wii U title. Could the projects be one and the same?

An MMO on a Nintendo platform might sound far-fetched, but Ubisoft has already confirmed Ghost Recon Online for the system, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata promised that the Wii U will boast more "flexible" online features than its predecessor.

Ubisoft Quebec co-developed Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Revelations, and was responsible for Wii and PSP version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
