ZombiU Screen 001

Yesterday, Jean-Philippe Caro of Ubisoft Montpellier responded to a fan on Twitter asking if there was going to be a sequel to ZombiU, one of the launch titles for the Wii U last year. He responded by saying that there was prototype currently in development.

 

Antony Johnston, the writer for ZombiU and Dead Space, also had a conversation with a fan of the game on Twitter, which was posted onto NeoGAF. When the topic of a ZombiU sequel came up, he said that he would like to see a sequel. The way it was phrased seems to also suggest that a sequel might happen, which makes the prototype that Caro mentioned more likely to become a fully developed game.

ZombiU is one of the few games released in the past year that can arguably call itself a true survival-horror game. It even took home our award for Best Wii U Game of 2012. A sequel to this game would most likely make Wii U owners and survival-horror fans pretty happy. Assuming, of course, that it doesn’t get delayed and go multiplatform right before its release.

  • Whoa. The guy who wrote ZombiU also wrote Dead Space? Mind blown.

  • oh i would so love this! , specially if they fix the melee to make it more enjoyable ( at the very least add some other melee weapons lol )

  • The gameplay definately needs to be fleshed out more if a sequel is indeed in the works

    I’d add more weapon variety, customization, and wear and tear where the weapons due get damaged or worn out and you need to either fix or replace them.
