A sequel to Rayman Origins is in the works, according to an Arkenford marketing survey. A user sent photos of the survey to Neogaf, outing a number of new locations by doing so.
This is great news but what is happening with BG&E2 ??
I agree. While more Rayman is awesome and somewhat surprising news (considering the supposed sales numbers), Ubisoft needs to shed some light on Beyond Good and Evil 2, especially since its development is supposedly tied with Rayman Origins' success. As for this sequel, I hope there are more bosses. I thought Rayman Origins needed more of those. Either way, exciting news.
... and just release Rayman Origins 2 as a PSN/XBLA game, meaning at least a ten-fold of sales, as opposed to trying to sell it at 60 bucks as a retail-game, and watching it 'flop' until it hits the bargain-bins. It's a brilliant game, no doubt, but it was clear that most gamers weren't convinced that it was '60 bucks great'. Release it as a downloadable game for 15 bucks, sell at least 10 times as many copies, and watch everyone be happy: Ubisoft happy with it's sales, gamers happy with a great game for a great price, and obviously reviewers already happy if it's as good as Origins.
BG&E2 is for the next gen of consoles .. Ancel project is rumored to be too big for this gen to stay true to what he wants to do. So let's wait ..
it really saddens me that origins flopped in sales. it was really a fresh experience between those bloody shooters. smh, gamers! SMH!
It flopped because of Ubisoft and their high price tag at retail....
More like zero marketing...
The game is worth 60$ because its great.
... and yes, it IS great, but is hasn't convinced the gaming-audience of it's full-price retail worth which is why it (sadly) 'flopped' at 60 bucks. Ubsioft should have been smarter and less greedy, just selling it as a downloadable title for 15 bucks, and it would have sold at least 10 times as much as it did on day 1, plus it would have remained a must-buy downloadable game for years to come, appearing in every downloadable top 10 list, meaning it would have sold well for years to come. Now that it's 15-20 bucks, more and more people are picking it up. It's gotten great reviews and word of mouth, so it's still selling, but obviously it was marketed in the wrong price-range at launch.
How are sales on steam looking? And soon on Vita? Seems as all the combined sales actually made a profit.
gee I sure can't wait to smash another controller or two in a fit of rage
