While the original launch date for Rayman Legends was today, April 27, 2013, most of you know already that date was pushed back to September. The reason for this delay was because Ubisoft decided they did not want it to be a Wii U exclusive anymore. Unfortunately, though, the developers had already stated the game was complete and ready to publish. This sent Wii U owners and Rayman fans into an uproar. They took to the internet in various forms to state their opinions, and many times, they criticized Ubisoft for their decision.
In a recent interview with Kotaku, Ubisoft had this to say:
The Wii U the team is working hard on the Wii U [version] to make sure it continues to improve, so it can become one of the best Wii U games. We hope it can be one of the top games Ubisoft creates. What’s very important to consider is that when a team has more time, they are able to continue to improve the quality of the game. When we saw we had more time, we saw all of the possibilities. Some of the possibilities are the social features that we are seeing today, but also new bosses, new possibilities that will take the game to a level that people will love.
There you have it. Apparently, the developers are going to use this time to further improve the Wii U version of Rayman Legends with better social features, new bosses, and more. But will this new information quiet the pandemonium?
