Ubisoft were the messengers of some concerning news yesterday when during a financially oriented conference call they revealed that Rayman Legends sold well below expectations.
“As we have said we have experienced lower sales than we anticipated when we gave our targets,” said Chief Financial Officer of Ubisoft Alain Martinez.
Selling only 300,000 copies across all platforms things are not looking good for Rayman Legends. Many are chalking the deficit up to the debacle that was the games initial Wii U exclusivity and the delay that followed in order to port the title multi-platform, but there are more factors to consider. The window in which Rayman Legends released was highly competitive with GTA V, FIFA, Madden, and NHL releasing in a similar span.
