Ubisoft Maybe Thinking About Possibly Making a Rayman: Origins Sequel, Perhaps
@lockonandfire: I'd answer that, but any reasonable answer I can think of would have me dismissed as a troll. It would probably be an answer involving the relative cost vs. popularity of lossy DRM'ed mp3 files, McDonalds "food", portable Apple products, Starbucks "coffee" ...and a wonderful book from 1841 called "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds".
I really hope this is true. Rayman Origins was one of my favorite games in a long long time. I got it for 360 at $60 and also got it for Vita to play the game on the go. All the stories I saw about the game underselling made me assume there wasn't going to be a sequel, but I would LOVE one. Probably my most anticipated game if true.
What else are Ubisoft going to release if not this? Now that the Wii casual market is dead and they can't rely on shovel-ware income, apart from Assassins Creed (which they've got dangerously close to milking to death already) what franchises do they have left that gets anybody excited anymore?
Jeff's enthusiasm towards the new Ghost Recon is a microcosm of a larger picture that would suggest that Ubisoft need to stop falling back on the same 3-4 games and come up with some new I.P's.
Why the speculation when the current game is so new?
Well, putting things in some kind of perspective, MW3 is only 1 week older than Rayman Origins, and there's already official announcements of announcements happening for the next one. Between the annual cycle of COD, Assassin's Creed games, and <insert EA sports title here>, people have come to expect rapid iterations on every piece of IP that comes along.
I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying it sucks, but that's the answer to why there's speculation already. :(
You know, for all the "it's a shame the game is sixty dollars cause this game is great" talk I'm hearing every freaking time someone talks about Rayman Origins, I actually only saw that price, like, the first month or so of its release. When that whole "thirty dollar sale" for a game such as this happened at my local Gamestop back in Black Friday, I noticed they never actually changed the price for this particular game since. And by January, I saw it cost thirty bucks practically everywhere. No more sympathetic excuses, you guys. If you want to, play the damn game now, because it's awesome and I'm pretty sure not sixty bucks anymore.
Anywho, I couldn't be more excited for such a possibility. When they say "same basic gameplay," I'll assume that they don't mean that you'll relearn the same moves throughout half the course of the game and instead make a lot of it available early on with more special skills and stuff involved. Rayman associating with vampires has got some potential--BatRayman, you guys.
@Paul_Is_Drunk: I'm not sure if you have played it but there is a whole lot of game there and you can really see all work that has gone into the art style. I can see why it comes across as a questionable proposition but i've put way more time into it than I would the average FPS.
My wife LOVES this game. What's funny is she's awful at platformers (Even she admits it) but we still managed to beat the whole game AND the Land of the Livid Dead (which is Super Meat Boy to the extreme) together. This game was a total party co-op; PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER ONE UBISOFT. :)
