Unprofitable ZombieU Prompts Ubisoft To Reconsider Wii U Support

Ubisoft is one of Wii U’s launch partners and it can be safely said that it is the largest supporter of Nintendo’s console till now, but it seems its patience is running out on the underperforming platform.

Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft Chairman and CEO, admitted that the ompany is not interested in developing a sequel to ZombieU. Despite being a highly acclaimed launch title, ZombieU was not even close to being profitable, he noted.

"We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience," said Guillemot. "We hope it will take off. At the moment, we've said 'let's do through Christmas and see where we are from there.'"

Guillemot also confirmed that ZombieU’s poor performance was what enticed Ubisoft to make Rayman Legends a multiplatform game.

Wat....?

"ZombieU was not even close to being profitable" Could it possibly be the result of... wait for it... the game being crap, and not the result of the Wii U? I mean, it had stunning reviews across the board...... lol Food for thought.

Just spitballing here

But I think the whole zombie survival genre is fairly tapped out. With games like L4D, The Walking Dead and Dead Island it's pretty hard to capitalize on that... Maybe gamers are just to demanding?

My motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

"Unprofitable ZombieU Prompts Ubisoft To Reconsider Wii U Support" it's like saying a swimming athlete says "i'm cancelling my trip to the olympics cos the water is to clod"...pussies.

Being a 3rd party dev for

Being a 3rd party dev for Nintendo since the Wii has been a financially uphill battle, but that doesn't mean it's Nintendo's fault that Ubisoft made a mediocre Wii U exclusive title and lost money. I don't think 3rd party devs will be 100% on board until Nintendo have a console with current gen specs. Until then, it's pretty much a Nintendo console that plays Nintendo games. (which isn't a bad thing!!)

Epic failure

Who did not see the Wii U's epic failure coming? How far up their own asses can Nintendo executives... they must have a special machine where they go to work every morning, step inside, say hello, and then step into the machine. While they smile at the strange somewhat taboo yet enjoyable experience, the machine forcibly contorts them until their head has been fully inserted into their own ass. It is at this point that they wander up into the boardroom and draw up new ideas together from within their ass-cavity camera/display HUD, the idea for which was previously developed at one of these very meetings.

So from that statement you

So from that statement you don't even own the wii u lol. another Fucking pc retarded fanboy, awww jealous of all those exclusives you can't have lol. go hide in your bedroom you antisocial little turd and get saving for your next graphics card.

Nintendo morons

Then they should just put out their great games for PC, Xbox, PS3, Android, IOs, and whoever else they can. Stop making shitty pieces of hardware, and sell the hell out of their games.
