‘ZombiU’ Not Profitable For Ubisoft, Sequel Scrapped

ZombiU2

The innovative — if uneven — Wii U launch title ZombiU was a brutal and unforgiving survival horror game that actually managed to find a novel way to use the console’s GamePad controller. Unfortunately, it seems creative new IPs that show a lot of promise aren’t enough to get Ubisoft to green-light a sequel, despite a report back in May that they had an early sequel prototype in development. It looks like those plans have been scrapped.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed an interesting fact about the game earlier today. Apparently, it made no money. It didn’t even come close to profitable. It looks like ZombiU is destined to become a cult hit, instead of the start of a new series. That’s disappointing.

    The WiiU is such garbage. It’s barely an improvement over the Wii. Had this been on another console, this IP might have had a chance.
