Rayman Legends devs vs Ubisoft with banner

By Alan Ng - Feb 13, 2013

The fallout on the finished version of Rayman Legends on the Wii U which hasn’t been released to the public, is continuing. After Ubisoft attempted to release a new demo for Wii U owners by way of apology, the developers for the game are now siding with the fans, requesting publisher Ubisoft to release the game and end the turmoil.

At the moment, fans cannot understand why Ubisoft has decided to hold back the finished Wii U version of the game, with the main reason only being because they want to release the game at the same time as the newly announced PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. In case you were thinking that the delay is any fault of the developer, the creators of the game have decided to set the story straight by revealing that it is actually the ‘big suits and ties’ at publisher Ubisoft who the blame should rest with.

The development team at Ubisoft Monpellier have released two photos, showing off banners of a crying Rayman and messages to their bosses requesting that they release the game. They have also asked for fans to support the developers of the game and understand the situation that they find themselves in – having finished development on the game, but now having to go back to work on another Wii U demo at the request of Ubisoft.

The big question now though, is whether Ubisoft will give in to the mounting pressure and release the finished Wii U version. It would be a logical move to do you would think and definitely cast Ubisoft in a more positive light as they look to remove all of the negative limelight away from them.

Where do you stand on this? Should Ubisoft just release the game and end all of the negative atmosphere surrounding the game? If you picked up the Wii U at launch just for this game, give us an idea on how you are feeling right now.

    This hurts. I’m not sure if you’ve seen the Ubisoft Facebook page bu there also other fans that are disgusted by this new outcome. With lots of people saying they won’t buy any new Ubisoft games ever. I shall be joining them in boycotting Ubisoft.

    I played the demo with friends, it was amazing. A gamedemo hasn’t blown me away in a long time. We spent around a hour just messing around in the demo admiring the animation. I really hope they release it before September.

  • It’s not a game I just desperately need. I don’t mind waiting. However, they might as well release it now and then release it again on the other two platforms with some added content. Otherwise, the current “issue” will leave a sour taste in consumer’s mouths and they will not get the profits they want by their current strategy of waiting for all three platforms.
