Poor devs, I really feel sorry for them (http://zonaforo.meristation.com/foros/viewtopic.php?t=2047583
). Only losers because of this Marketing decision. The DEVS, Nintendo, The WiiU gamers, and Ubi themselves. Raymans would have sold really well because there is NOTHING else to buy between now to end March. By posponing it to September they automatically sell less. There a so many big budget releases by then (GTA5 anybody)
I dare to question if the combined Xbox360, PS3 and WiiU sales in September would equal the sales of a solo WiiU release in Februari.
UNLESS: Rayman is targeted for Next gen consoles ps4 and Nexbox...then it will be a launch game..and sell loads!

I completely understand you but you have to understand one thing. This is not a decission taken by the development team, this comes from really really high up, so please don't pick on the game.
If you're p**sed, imagine how we feel. Think on the situation, we've been making overtime with this game practically since May preparing E3, and then almost a demo per month (gamescon, Wii U presentation, shops, eShop, etc...) and at the same time trying to actually finish the game. We had a first delay because it was obvious we couldn't finish on time but we gave it all to be there on February. What face do you think we had when the week we had to close the game we're being told it's not going to be released? I couldn't believe it.
For practical matters, you'll have to wait for some months for the game to be released and will most likely serve for more content to be added and do it better. For us, this means we've spent 6 months barely seeing our wifes, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn't needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow these news.
Even then I'm firm in what I said back in the day, Rayman Legends is an excellent game and will still be, and the team that's making it doesn't deserve to have your back turned on them just because some men in ties one day took a wrong choice. This industry is really that crappy
