ZombiU was a fantastic Wii U launch title, but one which sold poorly and didn't generate any profit for publisher Ubisoft. Its dismal commercial performance put the brakes on the development of a sequel, but it would appear that the French company is now looking for alternative ways of generating more revenue from the game.

Unseen64 has been told by a reliable source that Ubisoft is working on porting the game to Xbox One and PS4, turning this Wii U exclusive into a multi-format affair. Naturally this would involve changing many elements of the gameplay - you won't be able to scan rooms using the Wii U GamePad on the PS4 and Xbox One, for starters.

While it might be tempting to take this rumour with a pinch of salt, Unseen64's track record on this kind of thing is faultless, and we actually heard rumblings of a very similar variety earlier in the year ourselves. Could ZombiU be revealed in its new guise at E3? Time will tell.
