Whilst Rayman Origins didn’t sell very well in the first month or so, sales definitely seemed to pick up after Christmas, when the priced dropped down and people had a little bit more cash to spare.
In fact, I said that I would be surprised to see another Origins game after what I could only describe as a ‘harsh blow’. That wasn’t the case, according to Ubisoft, however, who confirmed that this 2D venture back to Rayman’s roots made a profit.
According to Kotaku, there’s a sequel in the pipeline, leaked through a survey conducted by Arkenford, who regularly work with Ubisoft. The sequel will apparently keep everything that made the first game so good: a lengthy campaign with varied levels – now with a more mythological flavour including ghosts, dragons amongst other mythical creatures – and the brilliantly fun four player co-op mode.
This survey doesn’t confirm the sequel of course; someone with decent photo editing skills could just be pulling our leg, or, more likely, it could just be a survey to test the waters for a sequel, with no full confirmation until Ubisoft get the response they want.
Well, if you’re listening, Ubi: please make this sequel, we’ll all buy it this time. I promise.
