Rayman Creator protests delays

Rayman Legends’ recent delay has not been taken well by it’s Creator Michel Ancel or some members of the game’s development team.

Development on Rayman Legends for Wii U was reportedly finished and ready for release but the game was pushed to September before being announced as a cross-platform release for Xbox 360 and PS3 too.

Ancel and other developers appear in the image holding a banner with following in French: “Sortez nous Rayman. Soutient a Ubi Montpellier,” which translated to English means “Release Rayman, Support Ubisoft Montpellier.” The banner also shows a crying Rayman stating “SVP” or “Please“.

As happy as we are to see Rayman Legends heading over to XBox 360 and PlayStation 3, it is a pity to see the Wii U version of the title delayed. For many Wii U owners the latest Rayman installment was reason enough to justify the purchase of Nintendo’s newest console and at the very least should have been treated to an earlier release of the game compared to it’s competing console brethren.

Rayman Legends is due to be released in September for Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
