A former developer of Rayman Legends has shared his frustrations about the game’s delay with members of Spanish forum EOL. The developer also spoke out about the harsh working conditions he encountered whilst making the game at Ubisoft, but he urges fans to continue to support the game. Rayman Legends is coming to Wii U, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, this September.
“If you’re p*****, imagine how we feel. Think on the situation, we’ve been making overtime with this game practically since May preparing E3, and then almost a demo per month (Gamescom, Wii U presentation, shops, eShop, etc…) and at the same time trying to actually finish the game.”
“We had a first delay because it was obvious we couldn’t finish on time but we gave it all to be there on February. What face do you think we had when the week we had to close the game we’re being told it’s not going to be released? I couldn’t believe it.”
“For us, this means we’ve spent six months barely seeing our wives, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn’t needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow this news.”
‘”Rayman Legends is an excellent game and will still be, and the team that’s making it doesn’t deserve to have your back turned on them just because some men in ties one day took a wrong choice.”
“This industry is really that s*****.”
