Ubisoft reveal new Rayman
On the day Ubisoft were reportedly gazumped by Microsoft in the acquisition of UK developer Lionhead, the French publisher decided to sweeten the pill of disappointment by announcing a brand new instalment in the Rayman series of colourful 3D platform titles. The Rayman series has sold some sixteen-million copies worldwide to-date, and Ubisoft reveal that the latest outing will be out this year in-time for the traditionally lucrative festive season.
The fourth instalment, as yet untitled, will be developed for current and next-generation systems, and we're guessing both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 are covered by the 'next-gen' caveat. As with past outings, series creator Michel Ancel will take charge of the project, to be created by Ubisoft's Montpellier studio.
"Rayman is one of the brands that encapsulate Ubisoft's ability to create characters and universes that appeal to all kinds of players," beamed Ubi chief Yves Guillemot. "We are expecting this new Rayman video game to sweep players off their feet."
