Michel Ancel, the creative mind behind Rayman, has joined the chorus of those speaking out against Ubisoft for delaying the Wii U release of Rayman Legends. Eurogamer has a photo of Ancel and two members of the Ubisoft Montpellier team holding a sign depicting a weeping Rayman uttering a meek, “Please”.
Eurogamer.fr translated the sign which reads, “Release Rayman. Support Ubisoft Montpellier.”
Ubisoft has come under fire for the delay of the game (originally schedule to be released in a few weeks) since the surprise announcement that the game would lose its Wii U exclusivity and release alongside the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions in September. Ubisoft plans on releasing a new demo in order to placate an angry fan base but somehow I don’t see that doing the trick right now.
