A retail listing for a sequel to ZombiU has appeared on Amazon France.
ZombiU 2 was briefly listed on the site. The listing has since been taken down, but not before Jeuxvideo grabbed some screens.
According to the listing, the game will be released on October 17, 2015, and is coming to Wii U.
It also listed Namco Bandai as the publisher. The first ZombiU was developed and published by Ubisoft.
While ZombiU was for some time the best-selling third-party game on the Wii U, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot said it “wasn’t even close to profitable.”

Scholar of the First Sin contains all three of the game’s DLC chapters (Crown Of The Sunken King, Crown Of The Old Iron King, and Crown Of The Ivory King), but also “an array of all-new content”, according to Bandai Namco.
