Don't expect to play Beyond Good & Evil 2 anytime soon. Ubisoft confirmed during an earnings call today that the game--which was first announced in 2008--will not be among the five AAA titles that Ubisoft plans to release in the coming financial year that begins in April 2020.

Given that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will not release during the fiscal year that ends March 31, 2021, you can expect the game to launch in April 2021 at the very soonest, according to GI.biz.

Now Playing: No Beyond Good And Evil 2 This Year - GS News Update

Ubisoft has five AAA games that it will release by March 2021. Three of them are scheduled to release between September and December 2020, with the remaining two set to launch between January and March 2021.

These games include Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs: Legion, as well as two unannounced titles. The next Assassin's Creed is probably a good bet for one of these unannounced titles.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a prequel to the 2003 original. It's been in the works for a long time, but there is still no official release date or announced platforms. In an intriguing bit of news, actor Joseph Gordon Levitt's creative company, HitRecord, is partnering with Ubisoft to give players tools to create content.

In other news, Ubisoft recently spoke about how its games needed to be better differentiated, and set about several top-level changes including reshuffling the management team. Those moves included rehiring Maxime Beland, a veteran producer responsible for several of its biggest hits, to make big-picture decisions about its full slate of games.
