Ubisoft blasted on Miiverse for Rayman Legends news; devs no

To say the least, Wii U owners aren't pleased with the news that Rayman Legends is going multiplatform. Due to the new SKUs, the game won't be available until September. The delay was announced just weeks before Legends was supposed to launch on Wii U.

Wii U users took to Miiverse today to voice their displeasure with Ubisoft. You'll find tons of commentary from system owners on the Uplay community complaining about the news.

But Wii U fans aren't the only ones unhappy with Ubisoft's announcement. One of the developers (take this with a grain of salt - he's apparently "Xavier", on stage at Ubisoft's E3 presser last year to show off the title) wrote a fairly lengthy reaction to the delay. Xavier noted how members of the team "spent 6 months barely seeing our wifes, kids, and friends" as they crammed to get Rayman ready for release this month. It was "for nothing", however, and "it was a hell to swallow" the news. Xavier does stand by the quality of Legends though, and hopes consumers won't neglect it simply because of what some believe is a poor decision from Ubisoft.

Unfortunately there's not really a way to support the dev team without supporting the "men in ties" as well. It's a tough call.

This is very unfortunate. Reading one of the devs post makes me really sad. Crunch time for nothing. :(

Just thought I'd share this video which outlines it for those who don't have Miiverse.

Wow, the hate is incredible. I just feel sorry for the Devs who worked their asses off getting this game ready in time :(
