Beyond Good & Evil 2 will be a Next-Gen Game
Beyond Good & Evil 2 will have to be a next-gen game, says series creator Michel Ancel.
“I think [on current platforms] Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible, but it’d be painful,” said Ancel in a recent interview with GameReactor. “It’s always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not doing optimizations or things like that.
“Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we’re working on them. We’re trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon.”
Given his statements, it’s safe to say that we shouldn’t expect the game to come out on existing platforms, including the Wii U.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that the game remains in development (via Gameranx), but added that the studio was unable to release any new information until they had something new to share.
