Ubisoft CEO Says Beyond Good And Evil 2 Is "Progressing Well"
It's been over two years since we last saw the game, and 12 years since it was announced.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still in the works at Ubisoft, and is apparently progressing nicely. In Ubisoft's latest earnings report, CEO Yves Guillemot fielded a question about the long-in-development sequel following the departure of Michel Ancel, creator of the series, from the games industry.
Guillemot didn't drop anything too revealing about the game, but he gave a brief update on how things are going.
"The game is progressing well," Guillemot said. "The world is really fantastic; as you could see, Netflix also decided to take that universe and create a movie with it. So there's a lot of progress in that team and the game is coming along very well."
The Netflix movie was announced in July, and will be directed by Detective Pikachu's Rob Letterman. Last we heard, it was still in early development.
A release date for Beyond Good and Evil 2 has not yet been announced; a 2021 release is a possibility, but in no way confirmed. It's also unknown, at this point, which systems the game will launch on.
Ubisoft also announced the delays of Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six: Quarantine. They won't arrive until after March 2021.
Ancel, incidentally, is under investigation in the wake of his departure for the work environment he fostered.
