In the summer of 2021, E3 returned. It was a time of great excitement and anticipation that followed a year in which the gaming industry changed in a big way. While presenters like Xbox stole the show, some other companies didn’t fare quite as well. At the other end of the spectrum, there’s Ubisoft, which many fans felt had one of the most disappointing presentations at E3 2021. There were several games and franchises from the developer’s catalog that were conspicuously absent, like “Beyond Good and Evil 2,” “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell,” and “Star Wars,” but that’s not all. Some fans may have noticed a lack of information on a beloved series that’s been relegated to mobile platforms since 2013.
The last time Rayman starred in his own non-mobile game was in 2013’s “Rayman Legends.” Since then, the classic Ubisoft hero was left in the dust once more, leaving many to wonder if he will ever appear in a proper main-series title again. Here’s why you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for a new “Rayman” game.
