Ubisoft has "no plans" - or even desire - to develop a sequel to Wii U survival horror ZombiU following poor sales, according to a new report.

GamesIndustry.biz reports that Ubisoft's terrifying launch title failed to turn a profit despite it being "one of the most popular launch titles on the system", and led to Ubisoft's decision to port once-Wii U-exclusive platform Rayman Legends to multiple platforms.

"We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemott. "We hope [Wii U] will take off. At the moment, we've said 'let's do through Christmas and see where we are from there.'"

The news contradicts previous reports that a sequel to ZombiU was being considered by Ubisoft.

Back in May, Ubisoft Montpellier creative director Jean-Philippe Caro thanked fans for their support and revealed that "the team is working hard on a prototype" for an unannounced sequel.

Official sales figures for the game have yet to be released.
