You know, I feel this game's issues were not just the system. A bad game that damaged the Wii U signifigantly, not the least harming Rayman.

It's nice that it finally hit a million, but it shouldn't have taken 3-4 years to do so. Not to mention all the price cuts it most likely had during that time, so i'm not surprised Ubisoft didn't make a profit and ported it to other consoles.

Zombi U is actually a true survival horror game in every possible aspect of the term. Just shows how unfair the game journalism is, giving all the praises to the joke of a game such as Last of us, claiming to be 'survival', and 'stealth'. What a joke.

Zombi U deserves all the praise and Ubisoft's support for sequel. Unique experience which you simply cannot find anywhere else. I wish 3rd parties took notes from it, prime example of utilising Wii U's hardware for unique, bone-chilling experience.

I'd just like to point out that Ubisoft said they won't bring any more "mature" games to the Wii U because they don't sell, and yet ZombiU is by far their best-selling game on the console. By. Far.

@korn62586 They may have. Which is idiotic frankly. ZombiU Is by far one of their best selling games on Wii U and clearly continues to get slow but steady sales. Ironically, their "better fit" franchise Just Dance is sitting waaay down on the Wii U sales lists at 20. Heck, Rayman Legends is lower than this. ZombiU is by far their best selling game on the system and it's a fairly low budget product! This is why I am convinced Ubisoft is the new Capcom: they are coming into this gen with money, decent rep, new engine tech, and off the positivity of well received titles, and they are already in the process of flushing all of that down the toilet with betrayals (of consumers and partners), overhype, asinine public relations, and absurd business decisions.

I don't understand how this was not profitable for Ubisoft. They've sold 540k physical copies of the game, a decent number of digital copies (I'd guess more than 40k), plus the game wasn't terribly high budget in the first place. If it isn't profitable for Ubisoft it can't be far off. Anyways I think it will sell 680,000 - 700,000 retail copies by the end of the year.

Well, the budget might've been higher since it was a debut game for a new console and wasn't this supposed to be the Killer Freaks game? The devs probably had to start over to some degree and that probably drove up the total cost of the game.

if it could stay steady with about 4.5k/week, in about 40-45 weeks (about till the end of the year), it could get annother ca. 180-200k

maby Ubisoft should change the cover for the next production set... (maybe just announing a sequel would help it's sales a bit better too...)...,

hope they do a better P/R for the sequel... (better relations with some reviewers.., showing how/how not to play it...., and the maybe some reviewers the wont play/test the game this time in a loud and bright enviroment..)

but if Ubisoft turns the sequel into a pure coop or online game, then they might as well not make it...., ZombiU2 has to be focused on the singleplayer part, keep it hard as ever.. , just hade some more dialogues, climaxes, ect.. and take away the radar..

Zombi U has to problems:
1) lame box cover art (just WTF where they thinking??...)
2) idiotic reviewers bashing at it, because it's not a conventional shooter...
if the sales can at least reach 500k in less than a year, despite those two problems, it should be worth a sequel..., this game is not a AAA budget game, and probably doesn't need to sell over 1m...
Demon's Souls sold less during it's start, but true core gamers realized it's greatness, and it developed long legs and even a got a sequel...,
Zombi u should be compared to Demon's Souls, it's just as special... (Red Steel is a joke, if Ubisoft gave RS a sequel, than they just have to develop ZU2...., hope ZU outsells RS at least 2x as much...)

for the sequel, they should just add some drama and multiple choices, like the walking dead, but keep the focus on a "solo" adventure, but make it bigger (and of course take away the radar, or weaken the radar a lot)..

Not necessarily, u know? Ubisoft could do what other companies have done, and instead, they could just simplify the gameplay so that it can b played with a regular controller. Hell, they could just "carbon copy" the Dead Island gameplay so to speak into this game, and save themselves some trouble that way. That's exactly what the guys who made No more heroes did when they ported the wii version of that game to the PS3/360, and what Sega did with THOTD:overkill, too... so those games never really depended of a wiimote 2b played, and in the same way, this game doesn't 100% "need" a tablet controller.
I agree with u, however, that if the devs want to remain true 2d original gameplay (apparently intended) then they would have to go the route u already mentioned, and once again, judging by the present sales, that certainly wouldn't b wise or convenient for them... risky, indeed.

I had read that they developed ZombiU for the Wii U exclusively in case it took off like the wii did. (remember, not many saw the success of that before it happened) Rayman, I have heard they paid for time exclusivity so even if it sells well I still expect it to end up on other systems in some way. That's how you maximize profits. Zombiu on the other hand is a bit trickier to port since you would have to have a vita to play it on ps3 and a tablet on xbox. That's kinda risky in my mind.

I wonder how many digitals have been sold given the various massive reduction on the Nintendo e shop!

You know, I feel this game's issues were not just the system. A bad game that damaged the Wii U signifigantly, not the least harming Rayman.

It's nice that it finally hit a million, but it shouldn't have taken 3-4 years to do so. Not to mention all the price cuts it most likely had during that time, so i'm not surprised Ubisoft didn't make a profit and ported it to other consoles.

Great sales. I will never understand how Ubi couldn't make a profit on this game.
