Beyond Good & Evil 2: Several Years Away From Completion?

Beyond Good & Evil 2 received significantly different rumours than what we have heard (and discussed) the last time.


It was Tom Henderson who last sounded the alarm over Michel Ancel’s legacy, saying it was only a matter of time before Ubisoft pulled the rug out from under the AAAA project, as there was little creative leadership left after Ancel, who had resigned during the harassment scandal, retired from the games industry last September. But now he’s posted something on Twitter that suggests otherwise.

A developer contacted Henderson after he tweeted about Beyond Good & Evil 2. According to the developer, who asked to remain anonymous, the game is still in development. It is getting sad, if not ridiculous: it is still several years away from completion. He has heard that the project is moving ahead without Ancel but that it will be around 2024-2025 before the end of development. And since that is still several years away, on the one hand, development could cost a lot of money. On the other hand, it could be why the French publisher decided to get rid of the whole thing by guillotine…

It should be pointed out that Ubisoft announced the game in 2008. So almost two whole console generations have passed since then. Here we quote ourselves from the last time we wrote about the game: “Although Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced years ago, it’s planned to launch in the fiscal year that runs from 2023 to 2024. We don’t know what Ubisoft would release it for (the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, Google Stadium, Amazon Luna quintet seems realistic…). Still, the project will likely be in the trash because we don’t see how the French company can bring the concept back to life.” So the rumour pushed the game back a business year…

Will the game ever see the daylight? It never hurts to doubt, and in this case, it’s probably the best decision.
