Has Amazon France just outed ZombiU 2?

Whoever’s in charge of updating product listings on Amazon France should probably find a new job, after another game has been seemingly leaked by the retailer.

ZombiU 2 was listed on the website for a few hours before being taken down, and some things about the listing are a little unusual. The game has been listed for launch on October 17, 2015 (which doesn’t seem to be a placeholder date like December 30), headed exclusively to Wii U.

The game’s description suggests the ZombiU franchise has moved to an open world version of New York (the original was set in London), labelling the game “the best survival horror of 2015”.

The original ZombiU was created by Ubisoft, and quickly became the best-selling third-party game on Wii U. However, Ubisoft has described the game as not being “even close to profitable”. Earlier this year, we heard discussions of a sequel, but these were soon squashed, with Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot saying there were “no plans” to continue the franchise.

Perhaps the idea’s been sold on to someone else, with Namco Bandai named as both developer and publisher for ZombiU 2, according to the retail listing.

There’s been no comment yet from either studio regarding the game.
