Today Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that the company’s Wii U exclusive title Zombi U was not a profitable game for the company. He stated that the poor performance of Zombi U is the reason why Rayman Legends will be released as a multi-platform title.
It’s sad to see such a great company that is supporting the Wii U as well as it is not able to turn a profit on their release titles, but it does explain why third party companies are quickly dropping support for the Wii U.
“We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience. We hope it will take off. At the moment, we’ve said ‘let’s do through Christmas and see where we are from there.”
With statements like this, this year’s Christmas performance of the Wii U will be one of the most vital in Nintendo’s history.
