Uh oh! It looks like the one of the very first launch titles will be delayed. Rayman Legends will be delayed until to Q1 2013 said Ubisoft today.
In a statement given by Ubisoft, this is what they had to say regarding the delay:
Rayman Legends will launch worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.
We’re happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We’ll have more details to share soon.
The original plan for Rayman Legend was that it was supposed to be one of the 23 launch titles that would ship with the system. The Wii U launch title count is now down to 22 in the US and 12 across Europe. One now has to wonder if the more titles could be delayed with the November 18th release date now creeping closer.
We hope, however, that this will be the last piece of bad news for titles coming out close to or on the release date .
