Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still coming as confirmed according to Ubisoft. Speaking exclusively to PCGamesN, a Ubisoft spokesperson has confirmed the game’s development is still underway. This news comes after the company canceled three unannounced titles and delayed the upcoming Skull and Bones once again.
”Beyond Good and Evil 2’s development is underway and the team is hard at work to deliver on its ambitious promise” says the Ubisoft spokesperson to PCGamesN. Ubisoft has also said to PCGamesN that the recent cancellations and delays have not affected Beyond Good and Evil 2’s development.
Beyond Good and Evil 2: When, And If Ever?
The tale of Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been going on for more than a decade. Initially teased back in 2008 via a short trailer, the game suffered multiple internal delays within the next few years. It was unsure whether even Ubisoft would officially announce it. During that time, it was also rumored that Ubisoft put the game on hold for its other titles.
Finally, in E3 2017 we received an official trailer for the game and an announcement by Ubisoft. Beyond Good and Evil 2 would serve as a prequel to the first game that was released in 2003. Another cinematic trailer was also revealed during E3 2018 as well. But, after that, there hasn’t been any real update on the game’s development.
With the first game’s director Michel Ancel leaving Ubisoft in 2020, it was doubtful that we would see a release of BG&E 2. But, Ubisoft confirmed in its 2021 financial report that the game’s progress was going well. In 2022, Beyond Good and Evil 2 became the most-delayed game in history surpassing Duke Nukem Forever. Previously it was confirmed that it is still in the early development stages. The game has already skipped two console generations and there is very little doubt that it will skip the current generation too if it suffers more delays. But, there is still a tiny bit of hope among fans that they will get to play the game sometime in the future.
