In the aftermath of Ubisoft’s E3 event, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was on hand to reflect on the mega-publisher’s stage show, which featured everything from a dancing giraffe and Just Dance 2017 to a bold new IP in the form of Steep.
Speaking with Geoff Keighley on YouTube Live @ E3, Guillemot also touched base on the long-in-development Beyond Good & Evil 2, allaying fears that the sequel has been canned by revealing that, yes, Michel Ancel’s title is “still on the way.”
First unveiled back in 2008, Beyond Good & Evil 2 entered a similar state of development limbo as The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV over the years. But now that each of those titles have been steered back on track, talk has inevitably turned toward Ubisoft’s troubled sequel.
Here’s the latest status report from Guillemot:
“It’s still on the way,” said Guillemot in response to Keighley’s question about its status. “It’s something at one point you will see, yes… [developer] Michel [Ancel] is working on it, but he’s doing two games at the same time, he’s doing Wild at the same time. It’s coming along, but he has to spend more time on it so we can see it faster.”
While we await any further developments on Beyond Good & Evil 2, developer Michel Ancel will be bringing an open-world adventure exclusively to PlayStation 4 in the form of Wild.
