Despite fears that it would flop, Rayman: Origins has been a success. Speaking in a conference call with investors this morning, Ubisoft revealed that the game has been profitable and that they feel it “has the capacity to become a long-term seller for the company.”
Things were looking pretty grim for our favorite limbless protagonist when the game moved just 50,000 copies in its first month. Many blamed the game’s $60 price tag, saying that it felt more akin to an Xbox Live Arcade title than a full game. Apparently, however, sales picked up in a big way – enough for the title to turn it around completely.
Rayman: Origins is bound to sell a few more copies with impending releases in the near future. The game is set to launch for the 3DS on March 20 and the PC on March 30.
