A sequel to the 2003 hit Beyond Good & Evil has seemingly been in the works for years. It is one of those games that has never officially been cancelled and Ubisoft has now and again said it is still being made. This week it was revealed the original creator of Beyond Good & Evil Michel Ancel has joined the indie start up Wild Sheep. Even with this news Michel Ancel isn’t leaving Ubisoft and work on Beyond Good & Evil is continuing. A statement from Ubisoft reads.
“It’s still far too early to give many details about this new title, but what we can say is that while Michel and the team at Ubisoft Montpellier are working with the core tenets of BG&E, they’re developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel and leverages next-gen technologies to deliver a truly surprising, innovative and exceptional game.”
Michel Ancel will split his time between Ubisoft Montpellier and Wild Sheep, also in Montpellier.
Ubisoft released a teaser trailer for the game back in 2008 and a HD remake of the original was released in March of 2011.
Ubisoft also stated.
“The entire team is excited about the direction this extremely ambitious project is taking, and we’ll have more to share later, as it progresses.”
It would appear the long awaited sequel is still a long ways off.
