ZombiU wasn’t that popular, would a move to new consoles really generate interest?
It was bad enough when Nintendo was being told that games offered on both the PS4 and Xbox One wouldn’t be coming to the Wii U. Now the company is losing titles that were once exclusive to the Wii U. The Australian Ratings Board website, long been a place for reliable video game leaks just had a listing pop up for a ZombiU port for Sony and Microsoft’s flagship consoles now simply titled Zombi.
Originally one of the only adult-level launch titles for the Wii U, there have long been rumors that the game was going to get a sequel. It appears that instead of a followup, the title is not going to get a souped up version for more popular consoles. As always, this kind of report needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
We just finished up E3 and there was nary a mention that this game was coming to either console. Ubisoft was the original developer for the game and rumors of a port that started last month have said the company would work on any other version. Perhaps this release is simply not big enough news that it warranted mention at the gaming conference. It’s also possible it’s not far enough along to be talked about yet. It’s inclusion on the Australian Ratings Board would seem to indicate it’s pretty far along though. For it’s part, the only comments Ubisoft has made in the recent past about the game is that ZombiU wasn’t “close to profitable” and there wasn’t any interest in a sequel. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
