Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still alive

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still alive and well, apparently. That’s at least according to the Twitter bio of a Ubisoft developer.

Sarah Arellano updated her Twitter bio this week to announce that she is now the Lead Writer, as well as Narrative Designer of Beyond Good and Evil 2.

Despite being officially revealed at E3 2017, the prequel to 2003s Beyond Good and Evil was first teased way back in 2008. Seriously, it’s difficult to believe that this game has actually been in development for around 15 years.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is years in the making

Unfortunately, since its 2017 reveal, we’ve heard very little about the game. So much so, that many fans have feared that it’s been caught up in the dreaded developmental hell. Oh, in case you’re wondering what the 2008 tease looked like, take a look at the video below.

Naturally, due to Ubisoft being so vague with the details on the prequel, we still know very little about the game. However, we do know that it will offer players the choice of a male or female character, and it will be set in an open world played from a third-person perspective.

Furthermore, Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be playable as a single player game or you can even play its story co-op with a friend. It’s said that the open world is a “shared universe” with some events affecting multiple players simultaneously.

Ubisoft is going through a rough spell

It seems that Ubisoft is going through a rough spell at this time. Recently, the company has cancelled four games, including the Ghost Recon battle royale as well as Splinter Cell VR.

The two other games that were cancelled were unannounced. That being said, at least that means Beyond Good and Evil 2 wasn’t caught up in that mix.

In related news, according to a rumour in 2021, industry insider Tom Henderson claimed that the prequel won’t release until 2024 to 2025. So, it looks like fans might have to be patient for at least another couple of years.
