Rayman Legends Developers Are As Upset As Wii U Fans


Are you a Wii U owner who was looking forward to playing Rayman Legends this month?  I’m guessing you’re pretty POed at Ubisoft.  Well, you’re not the only one.  According to a post on Neogaf forums claiming to be from a developer of the game, they’re just as upset as we are.

“I completely understand you but you have to understand one thing,” the mystery developer said. “This is not a decision taken by the development team, this comes from really really high up, so please don’t pick on the game.

“If you’re pissed, imagine how we feel. Think on the situation, we’ve been making overtime with this game practically since May preparing E3, and then almost a demo per month (gamescon, Wii U presentation, shops, eShop, etc…) and at the same time trying to actually finish the game. We had a first delay because it was obvious we couldn’t finish on time but we gave it all to be there on February. What face do you think we had when the week we had to close the game we’re being told it’s not going to be released? I couldn’t believe it.”

“For practical matters, you’ll have to wait for some months for the game to be released and will most likely serve for more content to be added and do it better. For us, this means we’ve spent six months barely seeing our wives, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn’t needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow these news.

“Even then I’m firm in what I said back in the day, Rayman Legends is an excellent game and will still be, and the team that’s making it doesn’t deserve to have your back turned on them just because some men in ties one day took a wrong choice. This industry is really that shitty.”

As always, take this with a grain of salt.  If true, Ubisoft managed to fuck over their fans and their developers in one fell swoop.  Good job guys.

    I’m a tad upset too that I now basically have to wait for PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to be completed when I’m more interested in playing it on the Wii U.
