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.”
