Rayman Origins is actually profitable for Ubisoft

Joystiq- Rayman Origins has been profitable for publisher Ubisoft and the company feels the title will be an evergreen success. Although the publisher didn't share sales figures or what the budget was for the title on today's investor call, Rayman Origins' apparent lack of sales success didn't make it a complete financial failure.

well with Vita and PC versions coming of course it is going to keep selling. I hope this is a sign for them to make more games like it.

Great. This is by far one of the greatest games this gen and the best platform game of 2011 IMHO. Outstanding gameplay, co-op, sound, and the visuals are the best in its class. Also this is probably the most polished game next to Portal 2 this year. 1080p 60frames flawless as all hell.

sonic generations was amazing too

I'd say one of the best platformers, but game in general.....IDK....

Well, they made a 2D platformer (of so-and-so length) and charged $60 for it. How many copies did they even have to sell to get in the black? 10K?

Genuinely one of my favourite games this gen, happy to see awesome games doing good

I do hope its sales will be satisfying enough because this is what will be decisive when it comes to Beyond Good & Evil 2's development. Let's not forget that, even though Michel Ancel has been working on this sequel for years, he still has to get the funds needed to stay true to his vision of the game.

Rayman Origins should have had more success. It is one of the most [insert a lot of positive things here] 2D plat-formers ever created.

I don't think Rayman Origin's sales will decide Beyond Good & Evil 2's development. Completely different styles and games overall. Beyond Good & Evil 2 also had the video that released a while ago that made fans cry out for it due to the graphics and what might be of some of the gameplay. Also, if a 2nd did come out, it'd be full retail versus a network release. Ubi would end up doing a lot more promoting for it than they did for Origins.

Excellent news, please make more

It may not have been a million-seller, but it was far from a flop.

It's a great game and it's a shame many gamers ignore quality titles and give them a chance instead of adding to Avtivisions money grabbing train.
I for one was glad I bought this and not COD, great visuals, great audio, funny and more importantly, fun. Go on people try it you might just like the world outside of FPS's.
