    Rayman Legends delayed until September (No longer WiiU exclusive)

    Ubisoft has announced that Rayman Legends has been delayed and will no longer be a Wii U exclusive. Legends will now hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U in early September, more than six months later than its original release date of February 26th.

    At the DICE summit in Vegas, IGN spoke with Xavier Poix, managing director of Ubisoft’s French studios (including Ubisoft Paris, Annecy and Rayman developer Montpellier) about the reasons behind both the delay and the move to multiple consoles.

    “When we saw all the comments when we announced the game would be focused on Wii U, all of the people that have both the PlayStation 3 and 360 were really disappointed,” Poix told IGN. “So we thought it was making more sense to also bring the game to where it was originally from. That means Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. So we decided to go for a multiplatform launch simultaneously.”

    Poix explained that the GamePad-based cooperative experience of Rayman Legends will remain exclusive to Wii U, while the Xbox and PlayStation versions will operate more similarly to Rayman Origins. He couldn’t offer many specifics just yet but indicated that more information will be coming leading up to the game’s release.

    “It’s a different kind of experience if you have the Wii U,” Poix said. “Obviously there will be cooperation on the PS3 and 360, but on the Wii U there is still this magic of having one player that can play on one system with a new experience and the other on the usual game pad. That stays a Wii U exclusive for sure, by definition.”

    Poix explained that the same team is developing all three versions (and also developed Rayman Origins). When asked about what PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players can expect, he explained that fans of Origins will be more than happy with Legends.

    “If they loved the Origins experience, it’s close to the same kind of feeling but with a level of immersion and brand new settings that haven’t been seen before. We have other features that I can’t disclose right now, but it’s really a brand new game. Even in terms of visuals, we built our own engine in terms of lighting, in terms of having 3D elements so you can have dragons that fly from far to go in your face and back. It’s a unique kind of 2D platforming experience.”

    As for the reason for the delay, Poix explained that “it’s really about the fans. It’s really about having a very interesting universe, a mix of craziness and poetry mixed all together. We are very happy that we can bring that to many, many Rayman fans and the more we can, the better.”

    Why yes, Mr. Poix, I did love Rayman Origins. This is great news

    Kind of disappointing as this was a major reason for me to get a Wii U... Still, saves me some money in the meantime and I can enjoy it on Xbox in September.

    Origins was soooo good. It's good they've kept the co-op experience with the gamepad exclusive to WiiU, so that's something. Not like they could have done it on the other platforms anyway but yeah .

    I'm saddened they didn't mention the Vita though. I played Origins on Vita and it was mind blowing on the OLED

    I still don't get it. If people really enjoyed Bayonetta, why wouldn't they pick up the console that the sequel is releasing on to play it? Nintendo was the only one that wanted to publish it, right?

    I always found it so silly this gen, the game is complete and done...buut it's gotta be fair for the other systems sooo you gotta wait seven months to play it. I know why they do it, just annoying. I didn't get far in Origins, but it was damn fun. Might have to check this out.

    It's like a time bomb. They need to find their wii fit/wii sports equivalent quick.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Id say it's a mix between the time it takes to port to the 360 and ps3 which I'm sure is more complicated than most people are led to believe, and an exclusivity deal with Nintendo.

    A little disappointed because one of the reasons for me buying a wii u recently was because I was looking forward to Rayman coming out soon. Oh well, I'll just have to wait a little longer.. Plenty of other games to enjoy during that time.

    I just read that the delay is 100% because Ubisoft wants to release the game on all platforms at the same time. That is so ridiculous!!!!!! Nintendo better have something up their sleeves. 3rd party support is starting to stick it to them already.

    That's pretty $#@!ty from Ubisoft to be fair..

    Then again out of the big publishers they've supported the WiiU the most so far. I'd bet the developers are pissed

    Major bull$#@! move on Ubisoft's part. Not only to those with a Wii-U expecting it this month. But the devs as well!

    I completely understand you but you have to understand one thing. 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 6 months barely seeing our wifes, 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 $#@!ty. - Xavier Poix

    Yeah but there's like NOTHING worthwhile to play on the system as far as I know. I checked out upcoming games and it seems like hardly anything for feb and march and I'd bet a ton of WiiU owners were looking forward to this

    I read the system only sold 34,000~ software units in the UK over the entire month of January. Less than Vita. $#@! is bombing hard and needs games big time. The whole tablet controller has absolutely no effect like the wii motion controls did.

    A bit offtopic.

    Anyway, still looking forward to it in September. They should have just released the WiiU one anyway imo

    Ok yeah good point, being a Nintendo platform though it should really have gotten a 3D Mario or 3D Zelda at launch, this is why none of them should rely on third party developers.
