The lights are on
Despite terrible sales, Ubisoft said Rayman Origins was a profitable title.
"We believe Rayman Origins has the capacity to become a long-term seller for the company," added CFO Alain Martinez during an investor call this morning. In its debut month in the U.S., Rayman Origins only sold 50,000 copies, and the game quickly was marked down in price.
Ubisoft didn't provide an updated sales number for Rayman Origins during the call.
I bought it and am loving it!
Rayman was like Shadows of the damned, sure it didn't sell a lot but its a good game.
Mr. Ancel deserves those sales.
Ubi made a pretty poor decision, releasing that game when they did. They should have just held it, for early this year or released it before Q4 last year. It had no chance in that time frame.
It's too bad more people didn't buy this... I hope this isn't the end of the Rayman franchise because of those low sales. This game was great and I'd love to see more.
Good news, everyone!
