The lights are on
The well-known Ubisoft developer is objecting to the delay of the Wii U version of the anticipated game.
In a photo obtained by Eurogamer, Michel Ancel poses with other members of the Ubisoft Montpellier development team of Rayman Legends, holding a sign that reads (in French) “Release Rayman. Support Ubisoft Montpellier.”
The public show of disconnect between the Montpellier developer and its parent publisher comes several days after an unnamed developer from the studio posted online about the team’s frustration with the game's delay. Having put in countless hours of crunch and overtime to complete the game, the team is unhappy about the decision to hold off another several months on release in order to have a day one release that includes the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Ubisoft responded with plans to release an exclusive demo of the game to Wii U players, but not the full release.
We’re reaching out to Ubisoft regarding Ancel’s posted photos, and we’ll update this story with any response.
