Ubisoft’s Guillaume Brunier in an interview with Nintendo World Report was asked if ZombiU was a remake of Zombi.

“We have a hard time squashing this theory. ZombiU is not a remake of Zombi. True it’s a tempting thing to believe as there are similarities but we only realized this afterwards”, he said.

“Now if that helps ZombiU being a franchise, we should stop fighting for the truth!”

I sincerely hope that this is hinting at the series' continuation with a sequel. Although ZombiU did divide critics very sharply, I feel a majority of players “got it” and it's turned out, in my opinion, to be one of the most unique launch titles in history.

ZombiU is available as a physical purchase and via Nintendo’s Wii U eShop as a digital download.
