Jean-Philippe Caro, creative director at ZombiU studio Ubisoft Montpellier, has said on Twitter that work on a prototype for a sequel is underway.

@Bignozjip Im sure you guys have gotten this question alot but if I could just ask, Can we expect a ZombiU sequel


Jean-Philippe Caro @Bignozjip
@KingreX32 thank you for your interest in zombiu. The team is working hard on a prototype. itīs too soon to tell you more.


Caro's comment follows one given to a NeoGAF user last month by ZombiU writer Antony Johnston, who also hinted on Twitter that a sequel may be in the works:

Idstone @IdstonePapers
@antonyjohnston ...and it would be lovely to see a sequel to Zombi that expands on the great start here.


Antony Johnston @antonyjohnston
@IdstonePapers It would indeed. *says no more*


In January, ZombiU producer Guillaume Brunier said Ubisoft considered including cooperative gameplay in the Wii U launch title before leaving it on the drawing board due to time constraints.

However, were Ubisoft's to release DLC for the game or make future instalments, Brunier said tackling "how to bring a cooperative experience and still keep fear and tension is a question we would love to address".

He added: "We did not spend a lot of time contemplating online multiplayer as we had other issues to address. In our most exciting dreams, we would like to create an online experience where players never quite know where they stand between coop and player vs. player. Doubt is a great nest for tension and fear."

In our ZombiU review we called the game "an imaginative take on the tired zombie genre, with some genuinely clever ideas and a grimly realistic setting."

Yaaay! Hope they can polish it up like they did with Red Steel 2 (although ZombiU is a million times better than the first Red Steel by comparison).

Kinect cant mimic the gamepad so i doubt that would happen.

Yes, so since that can't happen, it can't possibly be funny.

Wait... what?

You didn't like the game so no one else should have the chance to enjoy a sequel?

Unless they want to dumb down the gameplay to make it Multiplatform, then yes, it will stay exclusive. Of course this happened with Rayman Legends as well, so it wouldn't be surprising if it did happen.
