Looking for brains

ZombiU is arguably one of the most exciting titles in the pipeline for Nintendo’s newly announced Wii U system, but according to Ubisoft it might not stay exclusive forever.

Chatting with IGN, senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key explained that, while the game is an exclusive for now, the company would consider porting it to other platforms if it could successfully replicate what “makes the game cool”.

He continued:

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.

Of course, it’s probably going to depend on how well ZombiU is received on Wii U first. If the game crashes and burns on Nintendo’s new system, then it’s unlikely Ubisoft will spend the resources investing in a complex port. But if it is successful, well, you never know.
