Michel Ancel Protests Rayman Legends Delay

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.

I'm just your average Joe who enjoys playing and writing about video games. My interest in gaming goes beyond playing them as I'm fascinated by its cultural impact on our society.

    That is heavy. Hat is off to those brave souls.

      Indeed. I’m all for Rayman releasing sooner but it better stay multiplatform or I’ll be really unhappy.

    THIS IS STARTING TO GET REAL STUPID ISN’T IT!?

    • Allen_K

      I wouldn’t necessarily say its getting “stupid.” There’s a valid reason for the dev studio to be upset because all that time, money and overtime spent getting the game ready for Feb. 28th ended up being all for naught.
