Update 2:

The developer wrote a message last month celebrating the project's completion, presumably before the news of the game's delay was handed down.

"Today is a great day! We've closed Legends [development] :)" read a post dated 9th January. "See what you think next month!"

It's unclear who the Zeta69 account belongs to, but years worth of posts point to an ex-Ubisoft Montpellier employee who worked at the company for some time. The developer left on 31st January after the end of Rayman Legends' Wii U development.

He/she describes visiting E3 with Ubisoft last year while working on Rayman Legends and previous projects at Ubisoft Montreal, such as Rainbow Six: Vegas and Far Cry 2. Several recent posts allude to the news of yesterday's delay.

Update:

The post is real. Afaik Zeta69 is Xavier, the guy at the stage on the last E3.

"Yo os entiendo perfectamente, pero tenéis que entender una cosa. Esto no es una decisión tomada por el equipo de desarrollo, esto viene de muy muy arriba, así que por favor no la toméis con el juego.

Si vosotros os cabreáis imaginaros nosotros. Pensad en la situación, llevábamos haciendo overtime con este juego desde prácticamente mayo preparando el E3, y después casi a demo por mes (gamescom, presentación de WiiU, tiendas, eshop, etc...) y a la vez intentando acabar el juego. Tuvimos un primer retraso porque era obvio que no se podía terminar en fechas, pero lo dimos todo para estar ahí en febrero. Qué cara creéis que se nos quedó cuando la semana de cerrar el juego nos dicen que no iba a salir? Yo no me lo podía creer.

A efectos prácticos vosotros tenéis que esperar unos meses más a que el juego salga, y muy probablemente sirva para añadir más contenido y hacerlo mejor. Para nosotros lo que significa es que nos hemos pasado 6 meses sin ver casi a nuestras mujeres hijos y amigos para nada, porque total, no hacia falta tanta prisa. Creedme, ha sido un infierno tragar esta noticia.

Aún así mantengo lo que dije en su día, Rayman Legends es un juego excelente y lo será, y el equipo que lo ha hecho no se merece que le deis la espalda por unos señores encorbatados que un día tomaron una mala decisión. Así de mierder es esta industria"

I completely understand you but you have to understand one thing. This is not a decission taken by the development team, this comes from really really high up, so please don't pick on the game.

If you're pissed, imagine how we feel. Think on the situation, we've been making overtime with this game practically since May preparing E3, and then almost a demo per month (gamescon, Wii U presentation, shops, eShop, etc...) and at the same time trying to actually finish the game. We had a first delay because it was obvious we couldn't finish on time but we gave it all to be there on February. What face do you think we had when the week we had to close the game we're being told it's not going to be released? I couldn't believe it.

For practical matters, you'll have to wait for some months for the game to be released and will most likely serve for more content to be added and do it better. For us, this means we've spent 6 months barely seeing our wifes, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn't needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow these news.

Even then I'm firm in what I said back in the day, Rayman Legends is an excellent game and will still be, and the team that's making it doesn't deserve to have your back turned on them just because some men in ties one day took a wrong choice. This industry is really that shitty
