Ubisoft’s follow-up to its popular Rayman: Origins series has been delayed again, this time being pushed back to Fall of this year.
Another revelation after the delay announcement was that it also wouldn’t be WiiU exclusive anymore. This may explain the first delay that kept it from being launched alongside the WiiU; a claim that Ubisoft made at its E3 Press Conference last year.
So now the tentative release date is going from later this month to “early September”. In a press release, EMEA Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Geoffrey Sardin cited fan demand as the reason for the multiplatform switch.
“We heard from many Xbox and Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system,” he said, adding that Ubisoft wanted to give fans what they wanted while “broadening the audience” for Legends.
While the delay is frustrating, this just seems like a win-win for gamers, except maybe for the WiiU early adopters. Hopefully Ubisoft can hit its new release date though, and we won’t be waiting any longer as it’s already been a year since the original announcement.
Rayman: Legends will now be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and WiiU in September
