Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil series has been dormant since 2003, when gamers received the well-regarded original. A teaser trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2 popped up five years later, and in June, creator Michel Ancel said a small team was working on the game. However, series fans holding out for the true sequel should be prepared for the long haul.
Ubisoft producer Wang Xu told Eurogamer recently that gamers will need to "keep the faith" for Beyond Good & Evil 2. He also offered a statement on whether or not the upcoming HD rerelease of the original will be used to gauge interest in releasing the sequel.
"Yes it is true; please buy Beyond Good & Evil HD if you want more BG&E games," he said.
Released in November of 2003, Beyond Good & Evil won critical acclaim for its mix of traditional action adventure elements with stealth segments, a picture-taking gameplay mechanic, and an engaging story of a young woman pulled into a rebel faction to blow the lid off of an interstellar government conspiracy.
