Of all the sequels gamers have been clamouring for throughout the years, Beyond Good And Evil 2 is high up on the list. Yet Ubisoft have been very secretive about whether or not the game is in development.
According to Ubisoft North America’s prez Laurent Detoc, a team has been working on “BGAE stuff”, but confirms that the game’s future is still tentative.
“Whether or not it comes out remains to be seen anyway, but we didn’t want to abandon that IP because it has a cache and authenticity about it,” Detoc told IndustryGamers.
“I didn’t say there’s definitely going to be another game. I said something had leaked, which means we’ve been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there’s going to be another game or not, that’s something for the future.
“But getting to your question as to why there’s work on the IP again, it’s a creative people business; the creative talent is interested in it and possibly exploring how to do it from a new angle.”
