Ubisoft CEO Says It Could Take Some Time Until We See Prince of Persia, Beyond Good & Evil 2
Yves Guillemot says that Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten about Prince of Persia and Beyond Good & Evil 2, it just might be a while before we see them again.
Another E3 has come and gone without Ubisoft showing us anything new about two of its most beloved franchises: Prince of Persia and Beyond Good & Evil 2. According to chief operating officer Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten about these games, but it might be a while before we see them again.
“We are not going to stop those properties,” Guillemot told IGN in an interview. “We are going to work on them. The teams are really looking at what we can come [up] with. I think you will really like what you see in the future. It could take some time to make sure we are really delivering what we want."
Some news leading up to E3 gave us hope that Ubisoft might reveal more details about these games soon. In April, Beyond Good & Evil 2 creative director Michel Ancel revealed new concept art of Jade, the main character of the follow-up to Ubisoft Montpellier's 2003 cult action-adventure game, and later that month we heard rumors that Ubisoft was working on a new 2D prince of Persia game using Rayman Legends’ UbiArt Framework engine.
Of course, neither of these games materialized at Ubisoft’s press conference, though it did have a good lineup of games, including a new Rainbow Six. Make sure you don’t miss any of Ubisoft’s announcements by catching up with its E3 2014 press conference.
