ZombiU could very well be released on other platforms following a period of exclusivity on the Nintendo Wii U.
Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key told IGN that while the game has been designed specifically with Wii U in mind, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll stay exclusive to the console forever.
“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, and I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know?”
Key did state that it would only be possible to release the game on other systems, if Ubisoft could replicate ‘what makes the game cool,’ although he didn’t seem to think this would be impossible.
“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.”
