Eight years ago Ubisoft announced Beyond Good & Evil 2 and then wouldn’t say much about it other than it was still being worked on and a CGI trailer in 2009. In the past few days Michel Ancel has been sharing artwork which seems to be from the world of Beyond Good & Evil so hopes were high that Beyond Good & Evil 2 was going to be officially announced.
Well it has. Again. Sort of.
If you’ve been waiting for news about BG&E… well, here you go! We are delighted to confirm that Michel Ancel is currently working with the Ubisoft Montpellier Studio on a new Beyond Good & Evil game.
You will note the lack of a “2” anywhere in that statement, which seems to indicate this will not be the game announced a few years ago at E3, but another project. Thus, I refer you to our prediction from a week ago.
We think maybe Ubisoft have gone cold on a full sequel and will be testing the waters with a smaller, less risky game which will be a prequel. Beyond Good and Evil Zero, if you like.
