Speaking Ubisoft’s official website, senior producer for Beyond Good & Evil 2, Guillaume Brunier, revealed that Ancel hasn’t been directly involved production of the game for some time now, but the team have been hard at building on the foundation that he established years prior.

We still have a lot more to do to, and we’re ramping up the size of the team to help. We recently added Ubisoft Paris as a partner studio, and in the past six months many new people have joined us here in Ubisoft Montpellier.
