This version is called Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, and it’s strange that the post-leak announcement doesn’t mention any target platforms, while the release window is already mentioned…
Here’s a quick recap: Ubisoft will release Beyond Good & Evil for PlayStation 2 on November 11, 2003, followed by PC on November 19, Xbox on December 2, and GameCube on December 11. It’s the brainchild of Michel Ancel (who also created Rayman). The French publisher also released a remaster of this game, subtitled HD, on March 2, 2011 for Xbox 360 and on June 8, 2011 for PC. The sequel was confirmed as a prequel by publisher Yves Guillemot more than six years ago (!!!), but since then a sexual harassment scandal broke out within the company and Ancel left the gaming industry.
Now comes the second re-release, and this has been confirmed by Ubisoft in the form of an error. On the evening of November 28, some Ubisoft+ subscribers were able to see an early version of Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition on Xbox platforms. To this, Ubisoft responded on Twitter by saying that this version is not the quality of the final version, so it will be much improved for a release scheduled for early 2024. So we’re about 3 months away from release, with a normal announcement probably coming at The Game Awards. Up to 4K/60 FPS resolution and frame rate, better graphics, handling and sound, as well as new auto-save and cross-save features have already been confirmed by Ubisoft.
While the French publisher hasn’t said what platforms Jade’s adventures will be released on, you can guess that it will be a cross-gen title, so it will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as Nintendo Switch, which is essentially an admission that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will never be made, no matter how much the company defends itself.
Let the images speak for themselves.
