Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been in development for quite some time now, leading some to speculate that the game might be canceled, but the truth is that it’s still coming. That’s according to Ubisoft, which told PCGamesN in a new statement about how the game’s development remains underway, with the team continuing to work hard on delivering its “ambitious promise.” Beyond Good and Evil 2 was first teased by Ubisoft over a decade ago.
From a PCGamesN report:
Speaking exclusively to PCGamesN, […] Ubisoft says that development of Beyond Good and Evil 2 is unaffected. “Beyond Good and Evil 2’s development is underway and the team is hard at work to deliver on its ambitious promise,” says a Ubisoft spokesperson.
Originally announced in 2009, Beyond Good and Evil 2 vanished for a number of years, before returning with a new cinematic trailer at E3 2018. Michael Ancel, director of the original platform hit, is also helming the sequel, a sprawling open-world game set in a “multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, human society in a distant solar system” called System 3.
Ubisoft announced last week that it had canceled three unannounced games. They do not include the two unannounced games that the publisher had canceled back in July 2022. Skull and Bones, another project that’s been long in the making, has also been delayed until “early 2023–24.”
