Ubisoft CEO Admits ZombiU Sales Were Disappointing, No Plans For Sequel

Staying dead

Despite rumours that a sequel is in the works, it would appear that ZombiU won't be turning into a franchise — at least not solely on the Wii U.

Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that the game was "not profitable" and that there are "no plans" — or even the desire — to make a follow-up.

It is even suggested that ZombiU's poor commercial showing was one of the reasons that Ubisoft took Rayman Legends multi-platform.

ZombiU was one of the Wii U's most unique launch titles, and gained a very positive reaction from players. It would be a massive, massive shame if the series ended here — perhaps Ubisoft will make the sequel if and when Wii U sales pick up, or maybe the company will make it multi-platform to lessen the chance of sales not covering development costs? Let us know what you think by posting a comment below.
