Ubisoft is currently prototyping a sequel to its well-received Wii U survival horror ZombiU.
"Thank you for your interest in ZombiU," Caro wrote, having been questioned about the likelihood of a sequel. "The team is working hard on a prototype. It's too soon to tell you more."
That the project is merely being prototyped suggests the game has yet to be formerly green-lit, something Ubisoft has since confirmed to Eurogamer.
"Our teams are constantly working on creating and developing ideas," a spokesperson told us. "We have nothing further to share at this moment."
ZombiU studio Ubisoft Montpellier is also responsible for Rayman Legends, which is Michel Ancel's colourful Wii U platformer that was delayed so accompanying PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions could be built.
The studio is also home to the on-again off-again development of Beyond Good & Evil 2. In the absence of any recent developments on that project and the fact that Rayman Legends is largely finished, a ZombiU sequel seems a good fit for the studio's next project.
