Ubisoft devs not happy with Rayman Legends delay either
Can of worms.
bisoft dev called Xavier who was on stage last E3, has expressed his disappointment in a forum post. It has been confirmed that the post is indeed real.
Rayman Legends went multiplatform yesterday after Ubisoft officially announced that it is heading to the PS3 and Xbox 360, and also delayed the game by 7 months.
The post read that the decision wasn’t taken by the dev team and it was completely Ubisoft’s choice. Here’s the original post translated by NeoGAF member Beje.
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 shitty.
What do you think about this? Poor move by Ubisoft?
