Why did Ubisoft abandon Rayman as their mascot? He is the reason they became popular in the first place, but now his franchise is dead for good since Ancel left the industry.

  1. I’ll say this again. I prefer Rayman being dead over ubisoft resurrecting the series without ancel and shitting all over the IP. We had two really good games(origins & legends) by the end.

  2. They gave Rayman another chance. Sold decently well, but didn’t exceed high expectations. It was clear that Rabbids were the real breadwinner.

    • I’m gonna be honest bros I’ve always preferred Rayman 3 over 2. Dunno what it is about 3 that makes me love it so much, it’s just a fine ass game.

      Nah I understand that. I feel like Origins felt like it had the better platforming and stuff. Legends had those cool rhythm levels at least.

    AAAAAAAHHAAAH!
    Master of the sun!

    And friendship for everyone!

  4. Shame too since Origins/Legends were really good. But alas, Ubishit is Ubishit. Rayman isn’t an open world asscreed clone meme game so it had to go.

    • I checked the sales numbers (I guess unofficial) of Legends and while a slow starter all the ports and version sold well. Then Ancel worked on games that ended up halted or cancelled.

    • >set Legends as a Wii U exclusive at first
      >set its release on February 2013, with literally nothing else releasing that month
      >game’s basically ready for shipping from January
      >Ubisoft exect decide to make it a simultaneous multiplatform release and delays the already-finished Wii U version of 7 extra months to go out with the others at the same time
      >ultimately Legends launches on September ’13, the same month where Wind Waler HD, TW101 and GTA 5 release all together
      Golly gosh anon, I wonder why’s that.
