‘Beyond Good & Evil 2’ Is Now Next Gen

Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced in a trailer in 2008 and had been in development for a year and a half, three years later we are no closer to the game.

Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel spoke to GamesIndustry.biz last night and confirmed that the game is still in development, but there is a catch.


“It is still alive and we are very far [into] development so we can’t go back now,” he said. “We are targeting the next generation of consoles.”

That’s ‘next generation’ consoles as in Xbox 720 and PS4 (or whatever you want to call them).

Ancel and team have decided to concentrate on ‘Rayman Origins’ and are busy creating a new engine for the title.

  1. Ah for shame! Loved the first, was looking forward to this. Ah well, will just have to look further forward.

  2. Delayed until the yet unannounced next gen… either they know something we don’t, or that’s a really strange plan. I haven’t played BG&E yet, but I’m looking forward to the PSN release, heard only good things about the game. Should be in tomorrow’s store update :)

  3. I feel sorry for everyone who were forced by Ubisoft to buy BGE HD, in the false promise that it would accelerate the release of BGE2.
