Fans of smashing undead bobbies with cricket bats won’t be doing it again on the Wii U anytime soon. Ubisoft’s ZombiU was not profitable enough to warrant a sequel according to CEO Yves Guillemot. Speaking to GamesIndustry International about the Wii U console, Guillemot revealed that the innovative title featuring a zombie apocalypse set in London performed below expectations.
ZombiU, one of the most popular launch titles for the system with players, was not profitable, he says. Not even close. As such, he says, there are no plans (or even desire) for a sequel.
It was, in fact, because of that game’s performance that Ubisoft decided to make Rayman Legends a multiplatform game.
ZombiU was favorably reviewed on Quarter to Three.
