Yesterday Warner Bros. Interactive confirmed it would be publishing a new game from developer Techland called Dying Light. The game focuses on yet another zombie apocalypse, but has a bit of a different twist. During the day, you can set about the open world and gather supplies while the zombies are lethargic and barely able to move, but as night sets, the zombies become more active and animalistic in nature. The entire concept seems interesting, but it looks like Wii U owners won’t get to experience it.
The game was announced for current and next-gen consoles yesterday, with no mention of the Wii U. Today, Warner has confirmed that the game will not be available on the platform. That’s unfortunate, since Warner Bros. has typically been a great supporter of the platform with Scribblenauts and their various super hero properties. The game seems like a natural evolution of something like ZombiU, so there really is no precedent for the game not being available. Oh well.
