ZombiU was a great game; a tense, smart survival tale that didn’t feel too generic. A sequel – Zombi2 – could’ve been even better, perhaps losing the Nintendo exclusivity and releasing on even PS4 and Xbox One as well as the Wii U.
It seems, however, that Ubisoft have no desire to develop a sequel to the GamePad-feature heavy (SmartGlass, Vita?) game due to the first not returning a profit. It’s unfortunate, but mostly down to the Wii U’s poor sales – perhaps it’ll make some money in the future?
There were rumours of a sequel but nothing concrete, so now we know. It’s unfortunate to see a new IP such as this thrown away, wasting a lot of its potential.
It also seems that the poor sales might’ve been the reason for Rayman Legends losing its exclusivity, now releasing on PS3, Xbox 360 and PS Vita. Will Bayonetta 2 suffer the same fate?
