More bad news for Ubisoft today as they revealed via a conference call that Rayman Legends and Splinter Cell Blacklist had “lower sales” than they had anticipated.
Rayman Legends may have been effected by angry Wii U owners over the seven month delay and by releasing in between Madden and GTA V. Splinter Cell Blacklist sold notoriously terrible on Wii U during August, selling less than 10k during its first month on the Nintendo platform. For reference it sold roughly 300k across all platforms.
Rayman Legends does have a small bright spot as it appears that it has sold best on Wii U which doesn’t come as much of a surprise. It is disheartening to hear Rayman under-performing despite being ported to 360, PS3 and PS Vita. Obviously if you’re going to point a finger at platforms of which Rayman didn’t sell well on you’d have to point in every direction except Nintendo’s.
