Rayman gets a three count for the PS2.
At a press conference held in Paris, France where Ubi Soft's headquarters are, Ubi Soft's chairman/CEO Yves Guillemont revealed to the gaming press that aside from Rayman 2 three new Rayman titles are currently in the works. One of them is a sequel to Rayman 2 titled Rayman 3, Rayman 3 is expected to be released next October 2001 for PS2. The second title talked about was Rayman Tribes, this Rayman title was briefly spoken of and Guillemont mentioned nothing on a release date.
Now what really caught my attention is that Ubi Soft is working on an Online Rayman game which yet again the CEO spoke nothing of. All we got from Ubi Soft was an announcement that three new Rayman games are in the works, so don't e-mail us for any other info, or I'll punish ya on my letters page. In other words also at the press conference Yves Guillemont also stated that Ubi Soft is planning on releasing at least five games within the first two months of the PS2's launch in the US.
Following those five titles Ubi Soft will ship an additional 11 new games after a 12 month period. Gathering from what we know so far Rayman 3 and Rayman Tribes may be one the two titles out of the eleven. And then we have Rayman 2, Dinosaur, POD, VIP, Monaco, Evil Twin, Road to El Dorado and Donald Duck. I'm not sure how many of those titles will be one of the 11 games but I have a good hunch the a majority of them are. So there you have it folks. Ubi Soft has announced a stellar 16 titles to be available before the year 2002 approaches.
