Its been a long time coming but at least Ubisoft have confirmed that work on Beyond Good & Evil 2 has begun, here’s how the publisher broke the news.
“In many ways, BG&E is an inimitable game – it appeals to all generations of gamers and is an inspiration behind many of Ubisoft Montpellier’s past and future games,
It’s still far too early to give many details about this new title, but what we can say is that while Michel (Ancel, farther of Rayman) and the team at Ubisoft Montpellier are working with the core tenets of BG&E, they’re developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel and leverages next-gen technologies to deliver a truly surprising, innovative and exceptional game. The entire team is excited about the direction this extremely ambitious project is taking, and we’ll have more to share later, as it progresses.”
The news that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is at least in the works comes after the game’s creator and some would say driving force behind Ubisoft Michel Ancel has set up his own games studio dubbed Wild Sheep Studio, suggesting the publisher finally gave into Mr. Ancel requests to create the game in order to keep him tied to the company as Mr. Ancel will now remain on-board with Ubisoft working on Beyond Good & Evil 2 while also heading up his new studio. He’s going to be one busy man.
