I've had games I've wanted delayed before, like the first time Rayman Legends was delayed. I didn't care because I knew that the game would be better because of it. But the version I will buy, the Wii U version will not be benefited from this. I don't care that they are releasing Xbox and PS ports, but they could be kind enough to release the Wii U version now.

I don't get it. It is finished and now is the absolute perfect time to release it for the Wii U. The ports can come when they are done. There is literally no competition for Rayman Legends right now plus it was the first announced title for the Wii U. My guess is that certain other companies know how well it would sell as a timed exclusive for Nintendo and would rather see it getting slammed by GTA5 and others and thrown into the retail bin later this year, like a certain other game earlier.. what was it called.. oh right, Rayman Origins! This smells so much of money it disgusts me.

Ubisofts statements are also very hypocritical: They talk about how everyone on every platform should get a chance to play it, yet most of their recent titles have been released on every platform EXCEPT the Wii U.

Last but not least I strongly emphasize with Ancel and the devs here. They need to swallow this delay while working on the ports and maybe another demo. They put their love and passion into their creation for the past months and now they can't show it to the world for another seven. By the way.. seven months to remove features? Like stated above, they are probably getting paid so much for this nonsense that they disregard not only fans of the game but even their own artists. What tremendous amount of money would justify releasing a finished game half a year later on a way worse release time plus pissing off fans and your own employees?

I can see a 1000 petitions being made as we speak. Rayman fans don't fuck around (Not really they just bitch a lot like any other fan).

The handheld versions are just "we have to have it on every platform" bullshit.

So only the handheld versions are ports for profit? I guess I should try playing the original.

Yeah, but it's not like it's delayed because it needs polishing. It's already done.
How do you know that?

dev-pissed-at-ubisoft-for-delay-after-completing-wii-u-versi on-blames-men-in-ties

The developers should just refuse to show up to work on the other console versions. This controversy is bad on both ends. Consumers bought the Wii U for Rayman Legends, and the game is already done and ready to be played; why not release it? Delaying it will not only piss off fans, but it's a good way to waste resources, time and money, trying to make a multi-platform version. This is bad, bad, bad on ALL ends, and no one is going to win from this news. Bayonetta 2 being on the Wii U is a SMART move, but this...This is just bad...Considering Bayonetta would have been dead, had it not been for the switch to the Wii U (which will attract hardcore fans of Bayonetta to the Wii U when originally they wouldn't have been, especially considering the Wii U is adopting more games dedicated to the hardcore audience), when Rayman Legends is delayed just to have a pissing contest with Rockstar, EA, and God knows whoever else, it just shows stupidity.

I would at least make the 360 and PS3 versions as shitty as shitty can be just to spite my bosses; when my team was ready to ship a game, only to have it be delayed. I can only imagine how pissed the Rayman Legends devs are right now; forcing them to work yet again on ANOTHER version of the game, and forcing them to deal with PR issues, such as publishing by Microsoft and Sony, wasting money on licensing fees, network fees for online play using Xbox Live and PSN, and God knows whatever other expenses. Ubisoft; you're drumb. Go back to school.

Some digging-around revealed to me that Microsoft reserves the right to demand that a multiplatform title that releases on the XBox 360 has to release simultaneously on other platform versions.

Ubisoft probably could've worked out some contract that allowed Legends to still be released in Feb but they didn't bother, instead accepting a way worse release window.

Thinking about it, Wii U doesn't have many (good) as far as I know, so it is a logical that the fans are pissed off. I'm still against this immature behavior but just saying.

That's why releasing the Wii U version now would be the most rational thing to do.

All this immature behavior raised awareness and tickled a response out of Ubisoft although I feel like its usefulness is coming to an end - It seems kinda pointless now.

Well, Ubisoft can deal with the legions of pissed off fans who won't buy their products anymore if that's the case. If I were a Rayman fan, I would stop playing Ubisoft games PERIOD after this went down.

You got that fucking right, who wants to fucking challenge me! I wank over this series, it's the shit! Nah we're not all like that, i'm pissed obviously, but you know Wii U users are getting another demo for multiplayer this month and apparently we're getting some exclusive shit as a way of saying sorry.

You're right about us not fucking around though.

No, that's were you are wrong. Ubisoft makes good games, but let's not stop playing their games games because or a dumb decision, I'm a massive rayman fan, he was the first game character i cared about and is fucking awesome, so I would wait as long as the return of Jesus to play a new Rayman game because they are awesome!

:Splinter Cell etc). I also agree with all this anger and think it's normal, but I wouldn't approve actions like that. If you want to be taken seriously,be serious.
Give splinter cell a break, they have had some great games and it is still a good series.

Competing with Rockstar? That's pretty funny.
