    Beyond Good & Evil 2 Development Confirmed by Michel Ancel

    Beyond Good & Evil 2 is being actively developed at Ubisoft.

    Michel Ancel is best known for his work on the Rayman series of games, but he's also well regarded for creating Beyond Good & Evil. Despite being one of the most innovative and well-written games of its time, it didn't sell very well and as such, it's managed to become a cult classic.

    Needless to say, fans of the game have been clamoring for a sequel. Despite the lack of announcements, the game is supposed quite far from dead according to its creator Michel Ancel.

    In an interview at the Toulouse Game Show in France, Ancel spoke at length about the new Rayman game, his thoughts on DRM, and finally, on Beyond Good & Evil 2.

    Ancel said that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is in development, but the studio can't announce any release date because they don't want to make any promises they can't keep.

    "We are in an active creation stage and at this moment we are only focusing on the game and making it the best game that we can," he said. "That decision would just distracts us from that objective. I can say that it's a very ambitious game and we need some tech to achieve that ambition."

    He was asked if the upcoming game took any influence from Mirror's Edge, as the previously revealed target demonstration looked every bit as kinetic as DICE's title.

    "No, not at all," said Ancel. "We had this concept even before Mirror's Edge launched. And we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror's Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective.

    "We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirror's Edge but the game itself is very different."

    With the development of Beyond Good & Evil 2 confirmed, it's only a matter of time before Ubisoft announces when it plans to release the game.

    I was getting a bit worried since we have hardly heard anything about this game since the 2008 trailer.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Good to know its still in the pipeline.
    Doubt it will make it out on these consoles though. But I'm okay with that

    I had forgotten about this..I assumed they would announced it to be properly in development after they released the HD re-release on PSN.

    I fully expect them to include a free download code for that with new copies of the game...or LEs.
    Trophy-licious!

    Thank Jesus Joseph & Mary Mother of Christ on a Sidecar.

    Now that I know it's not dead, I can wait until next gen for it, especially since Ancel already said the game would probably be released next gen.


    Shut up and play games

    Or they could just be really nice and put it on the disk so we don't have to download it
