    It isn't April Fools but one has to wonder why there would even be a sequel to this game because it wasn't that good and the title would be clashing with the music band U2.

    It's no longer visible since Amazon.fr has since removed the listing. I'm guessing this is just a hoax.​
    P.S.: I know it's ZombiU but come on, Zombi U2 looks better. :lol:

    Ubi$oft figured they couldn't do shit with that franchise so they sold it to Bandai Namco. :P

    Are you saying they realized copy/pasting the same Just Dance game and just changing the MP3s and selling crappy songs as DLC isn't making enough money for them to innovate in other parts of the company? :unsure:

    Here's hoping it's not Bad! Ubisoft needs to start taking Pride in their games and setting high-standards... the first game left much to be Desired. With Or Without You. I'm done.

    Never going to happen.

    Ubisoft's unrealistic expectations for ZombiU inevitably fell short, which meant any possibility of a sequel was crushed. It's a shame though, because it actually was a decent game. The nursery level made me almost wet myself.

    ZombiU was bad? did anyone actually play the game or just read the reviews?

    The game was great, one the best games to induce fear, i hope there is a second one.

    There won't be a second one. The game was met by blah reviews and worse sales. I believe Ubisoft has actually explicitly voiced the fact that they have no intention of ever making a second Zombie U game because they don't feel it would be profitable enough to bother.

    It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything great. Pretty forgettable, but I wouldn't say to someone who wants to play the game that they shouldn't bother, there is substance to the game. I gotta imagine that with more time in development (instead of rushing to make sure it was available on launch) the game could have been fantastic, perhaps there has been a ZU2 game they've been working on that makes good use of the extra development time they'd have on the game.
