In January, ZombiU producer Guillaume Brunier said Ubisoft considered including cooperative gameplay in the Wii U launch title before leaving it on the drawing board due to time constraints.
However, were Ubisoft's to release DLC for the game or make future instalments, Brunier said tackling "how to bring a cooperative experience and still keep fear and tension is a question we would love to address".
He added: "We did not spend a lot of time contemplating online multiplayer as we had other issues to address. In our most exciting dreams, we would like to create an online experience where players never quite know where they stand between coop and player vs. player. Doubt is a great nest for tension and fear."
In our ZombiU review we called the game "an imaginative take on the tired zombie genre, with some genuinely clever ideas and a grimly realistic setting."
