The lights are on
The first ZombiU title might not have lived up to everyone's expectations, but for an at-the-time new system in the Wii U, you have to appreciate that developer Ubisoft Montpellier was at least trying. Hopefully some of the groundwork and lessons learned from the first game can carry over to what fans hope will be a sequel to the dual-screen survival horror title. Ubisoft Montpellier creative director Jean-Philippe Caro says that work has begun on a prototype for ZombiU 2.
Caro recently tweeted in response to a fan's question: "The team is working hard
on a prototype. It´s too soon to tell you more."
While the prospect of another ZombiU game will certainly hearten fans, Caro later to tweeted caution, explaining that prototypes are a natural part of the design process and don't always lead to a finished game. "... our job is to work on
prototypes that will become or not video games. :)," he said.

I have hopes for this. The first one had a lot of potential. I see this series in a similar situation as the Red Steel one, in that the first one had problems, but the sequel turned out great. Just have to work out some dinks.
That sounds good. It was a very cool concept; it just was lacking on some of the finer aspects. Well, a lot of the finer aspects really, but I still have high hopes for this. If anything, ZombieU was meant to show off potential, and it certainly did that. Now I'm hoping ZombiU2 can show off some more polish.
(Also, please don't call it that. I don't want to hear everyone commenting about how clever they are for recognizing that ZombiU2 reminds them of the band)
I'd love a ZombiU sequel. Iron out some of its kinks, give the campaign more variety, throw in online multiplayer and I'll be happy.
Hmm, I wonder if Bono will sue for copyright infringement...
I enjoyed the first one, if they can address it's issues; make a great game.
