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.
