Ubisoft contemplates releasing ZombiU on other platforms post-launch

Thursday, 7th June 2012 08:57 GMT By Matt Williams

One of the most exciting third-party WiiU titles announced at E3 this week, ZombiU, may go multi-platform following its WiiU-exclusive debut according to Ubisoft.

“ZombiU at its core was designed to be a great Wii U game and in order to make that work on other platforms they would have to change a lot of what makes the game cool,” Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key told IGN. “And I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know?”

Key stated that it would likely only happen if the company could successfully transfer ‘what makes the game cool’ on to other systems, citing previous considerations to release Red Steel for additional consoles.

A possible multiplatform release is definitely not out of the question though, with Key praising technology available for rival platforms that could serve as alternatives.

“There’s definitely going to be knowledge that we gain from developing for Wii U that we’ll be able to transfer not only to SmartGlass technology but also to even the cross-talk on PlayStation 3 and Vita.”

Thanks, GoNintendo.

    This would be amazing using the Vits & PS3, but I have a hard time imagining it playing on the 360 with a tablet or smart phone. I like the concept of SmartGlass, but I don’t think it’ll have any major impact into the main purpose of a gaming console- the games!

    I hate the idea, how annoying to try and keep so many things charged, battery life in devices is terrible.

    Then we can look forward to Zombox 360 and Zombistation 3 because I don’t think Zombi U would be a proper name for those versions.

    And there goes the reason (for some) to buy a Wii U specially for this. This truly would be sad, here i thought it was gonna be completely exclusive.

    I just hope it wont change the name to ZombieOrbis/ZombieSony and ZombieMicrosft /ZombieDurango, it will be worst than ZombieU

    @9 The 360 might be just impossible if the Scheme continues the same… might

    Oh boy the WiiU barely started being sold and is already falling.
