Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends will be making an appearance on next gen consoles. Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, revealed as much during an earnings call to investors earlier today. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will release sometime in February 2014.

He goes on to say that Legends has sold about 1 million units across all the SKUs. He’s optimistic that sales for the series will rise as a result of the increase demand for games created by the arrival of the PS4 and Xbox One.

In a statement, Guillemot said “The PS4 and Xbox One will be released in a few days’ time and will be a new driving force for the industry. We are confident in our capacity to rise to the short-term challenges posed by the transition phase, thanks to the very high quality of our games, which, combined with the upcoming arrival of the next-generation consoles and the traditional ramp-up of sales during the Christmas season will trigger positive momentum towards the end of the year.”

Rayman Legends came out a couple of months ago for Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, Wii U and PC. Check out our review of the Wii U version of the game.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    BS, who will really want to get it on PS4 or X1? By the time it hit on the so called ‘next gen’, it probably be on sale on Steam which is pretty much as next gen as these 2.

    Anyway glad the game didn’t sell that much despite delaying it twice on the Wii U. It will show them, they shoulda release it first when there was a drought in the lineup rather than now, when there are too many great games worth buying over it on all platform.

    It’s on Wii U so technically it’s already on a next-gen console.

    This news shows how clueless some publishers are.

    Ubisoft has a property which clearly appeals first and foremost to Nintendo gamers. Rayman is a property which, had it launched with Wii U as they said it was going to, would have been the top 3rd party title; it even had the hype to drive console sales. But it was delayed, and console sales were not what they should have been, in part (obviously not entirely, or mostly, but that’s not my point) because of the delay.

    This led Ubisoft to consider taking it multiplatform. This had two effects. First, it further lessened the hype it had among Nintendo gamers; and because of Microsoft’s no-sloppy-seconds rule, it further delayed the title. When it was released, Wii U owners were no longer interested; Wii U non-owners, which includes people turned off because Rayman had delay upon delay, obviously weren’t buying anything; and PS360 gamers didn’t buy it because it wasn’t their style to begin with. So they reduced their appeal and hurt a console to provide a game to people who didn’t want it.

    So far, so good. So now what are they doing? Developing for the same people who didn’t buy it already. The early adopters of PS4 and The Bone already have a PS3 or 360; nobody is going to be buying their first console. And they don’t want 2D platformers.
