Rayman named as Ubisoft CEO’s favourite character
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed the company’s limbless platforming icon as being his favourite character.
Rayman began life on PlayStation back in September 1995 as a 2D sprite-based platformer, the original having since been ported across multiple consoles since. Naturally, gamers are eagerly awaiting his next return within Rayman Legends launching in August.
“Wow, that’s difficult… I would say Rayman because he really made Ubisoft in a lot of ways,” Guillemot explained in a community interview on the official Ubisoft Blog.
“It was a launch game on the PS1 and Rayman was the first Ubisoft character that became popular worldwide. This really helped the company take off, and that’s why I particularly like him.
“In more recent years I would say the Assassins. I really like them all. I think they’re all unique, hugely charismatic and bring something different to fans.”
