Ubisoft Has Bad News About Beyond Good And Evil 2

It’s been an eternity since we heard any new updates on the development of Beyond Good and Evil 2, and it looks set to stay that way, according to Ubisoft.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced way back in 2017 and, aside from a new trailer in 2018, it’s all been pretty quiet on the piggy-shaped front. In a recent earnings call, Ubisoft confirmed that the game isn’t going to be coming anytime soon, outlining plans for other game launches that will be taking precedence.

Ubisoft re-confirmed that there will be five AAA games coming from the company between April 2020 and March 2021. These are set to be Watch Dogs Legion, Gods and Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine. The two others are from some of the companies “biggest franchises” – notably, the company made no mention of Beyond Good and Evil 2.

It’s now being speculated that the earliest we’ll see it hitting the shelves could be as late at mid-2021, though any clear confirmation of this remains to be seen.

As you rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain, you’ll traverse System 3 at light speed to explore freely on your own or with friends.
