Ubisoft Has No Plans To Release DLC For ZombiU

Downloadable content is still a bit of an alien concept for many Nintendo gamers. We’ve had some DLC made available for 3DS titles with the likes of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and New Super Mario Bros. 2 having content through internal stores, and Wii had rare instances too, but now that Wii U has arrived the scope for these extras has exploded.

We know already that New Super Mario Bros. U will be getting some additional courses provided for it in the future, and games such as Assassin’s Creed III and Call of Duty: Black Ops II are also supporting DLC on Wii U. Yet it appears that ZombiU, Ubisoft’s survival horror game, will not be receiving any additional content after its release.

Speaking to the latest issue of ONM, multiplayer game director Bogdan Bridinel revealed that the team at Ubisoft Montpellier has no plans on releasing any downloadable content for ZombiU, saying the team managed to fit everything they wanted into the game. (Wii U, ZombiU)

That Sux I was hoping they would make a online component

Probably waiting to see how the game sells. If true, it also indicates how third party devs are still skeptical about a Nintendo console.

Ubi, if you change your mind:

4 survivor MP.
Probably because the game isn't well received like they hoped. That leaves little room for DLC unless it is free.

My guess is this was probably just a one shot deal for Ubisoft. Something to cash in on all the hardcore launch players who would be buying a Wii U. It's the only game of it's kind at launch so they knew people would eat it up. If it sold great they'd explore future titles, otherwise they probably couldn't care less.

Of course not...because, like EA did with Mass Effect 2 on PS3, and ME3 on WiiU, Ubi probably plans on releasing a "new" version of Zombi on NextBox and PS4, with extra content. I've said from day-1 this game wouldn't remain a WiiU exclusive ; the fact that they won't even bother to support the game...beyond patches...after launch, shows their hand a bit.
