It’s been a roller coaster of news for fans of the beloved Beyond Good & Evil franchise since its first installment released all the way back in 2003. After years of speculation, it was finally announced that Beyond Good & Evil 2 was in development in 2017. But the news didn’t stop there. In 2020, Ubisoft announced that they had cancelled several projects, and some began to worry that Beyond Good & Evil 2 would be among them. Thankfully, Ubisoft has now confirmed that despite the recent cancellations, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still very much alive and on track for release… but when?
How We Got Here
Ubisoft first announced Beyond Good & Evil 2 all the way back in 2008—yes, almost 13 years ago! Unfortunately, development on the game stalled soon after and few updates were given until 2017. That year, Ubisoft surprised fans by announcing that work on the game was back underway and even released a concept trailer. Then things went quiet again until 2020 when a series of delays and cancellations shook up the gaming world. Fans began to fear that Beyond Good & Evil 2 had been quietly cancelled as well—until now!
What We Know Now
It turns out our fears were unfounded; Ubisoft has just confirmed that they are still actively developing Beyond Good & Evil 2! However, they have not yet given any information regarding a release date or even what platforms we can expect to see it on (although it seems likely we will get both current-gen consoles and next-gen). They did promise more information once their other projects are further along in development though so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long before we get another update about this highly anticipated sequel!
Beyond Good & Evil fans can rest easy for now knowing that their beloved franchise is still alive and kicking! Being such a cult classic from 2003, it’s no surprise so many geeks out there were worried about its future. Thankfully though we have confirmation from Ubisoft themselves that they are still hard at work making sure this sequel lives up to its predecessor—even if they haven’t said anything else beyond that yet! So keep your eyes peeled for more details as development continues because you never know when something new might drop about this legendary franchise!
