Ubisoft confirms Rayman Legends delay is to launch on multip

Ubisoft could have launched Rayman Legends on Wii U this month if it wanted to. In every practical sense, the game is done. Ubisoft is simply sitting on the title so that it can churn out ports for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

A Ubisoft representative commented on the Rayman Legends delay, stating that the move was made simply "to release on multiple platforms." The rep mentioned that the company tends to "release all of our platforms simultaneously", and while a few exceptions have been made in the past, doing so is "not our standard practice."

"There are no issues with the game development. All of the information was in the press release, the only reason for the delay is to release on multiple platforms. We usually release all of our platforms simultaneously (aside from PC). We've made special exception sometimes in the past but it's definitely just on a case by case basis and not our standard practice. In this case, Ubisoft recently decided they wanted to release the game on multiple platforms so the decision was made to launch them all at the same time rather than separately. I know it's not an elaborate, 'convincing' answer, but it's the simple truth."

It's not that the reason isn't "convincing". It's that it's a very stupid reason. :/

Oh god Ubisoft what are you doing?
Would it really kill you to release the Wii U version now and the ports for the PS360 in September?

It doesn't even give a reason! It just says "that's how we normally do it -- sometimes we do it different, but not this time". Why not this time? Why is this not an exception even though they've made promises about a release? It gives no indication whatsoever.

If you've read the commentary by one of the developers, saying they've worked their asses off for 6 months to make this launch date, it's even more insulting to them than to Wii U owners. Not sure if I should pick up a new copy to support them (and the franchise), or a used copy to spite Ubisoft.
