Yves Guillemot, Chairman and CEO of Ubisoft, has revealed that Wii U exclusive ZombiU wasn’t profitable for the company. Guillemot says the game wasn’t even close to profitable so they chose to make Rayman Legends a multiplatform title. Guillemot went on to say that there are currently no plans, or any desire, to make a sequel to ZombiU.
Yves Guillemot, Chairman and CEO of Ubisoft, is typically one of the biggest proponents of new systems, but betting big on the Wii U didn’t work out well for the company. ZombiU, one of the most popular launch titles for the system with players, was not profitable, he says. Not even close. As such, he says, there are no plans (or even desire) for a sequel.
It was, in fact, because of that game’s performance that Ubisoft decided to make Rayman Legends a multiplatform game.
