‘Rayman Legends’ Delay Caused by Wii U Sales Concerns, says Ubisoft CEO

by Joseph Leray

In an interview last week with Venture Beat, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot defended his company’s decision to delay and port erstwhile Wii U-exclusive “Rayman Legends,” a move that sparked controversy among fans and developers when it was made in February.

“What happened was that we saw the Wii U was not going to sell enough of those games,” the Ubisoft co-founder said. “The game is going to be fantastic, and we didn’t want those creators to wind up in a position where even after making a fantastic game, they didn’t sell well enough.”

“We decided that we had to come out on enough machines that players can try it out on any one that they have, and give more time to both improve the game on the Wii U and create versions for the other consoles.”
