The Zombie Game That Should Have Been

I was reading an article about cancelled video games that mentioned a zombie shooter I'm sure we would all love.  Division 9 is a first person shooter that looks similar to Left 4 Dead.  Division 9 was under development by Irrational Games and it featured survival horror game play in a city infested with zombies.  This Xbox and PC game to me looks even better than L4D.  I'm dying to get my hands on a zombie game where the dead are modeled after the Romero model.  I always loved the first levels of Resident Evil games for this reason.  Then they would get all sci-fi monster and ruin it for me.  Whatever happened to Zombie Island that we mentioned here before?

From Co-Optimus:

But this game wasn't just a straight up shooter, that's all fast action like Left 4 Dead. Instead the game offered base building mechanics as well as strategy with ammo, rescues and weapons for survival. The game would even offer branching options throughout play. An example is one mission might have you rescuing a doctor, if you fail or choose not to do it, you wouldn't get the bonuses that come with that - namely the healing he can provide.
