Not long ago Rayman Legends was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive, which seemed only natural considering the plethora of console-exclusive features it utilized. Then, yesterday we randomly get word that the game will be delayed because Ubisoft wants to release the game across multiple consoles. The delay will push the game back from February to sometime in September. Fans weren’t happy about this sudden change, and the game’s developers seem to agree.
Here’s a snippet of the posting:
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.
