Ubisoft Breaks Silent Over Beyond Good and Evil 2 Development

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced way back in 2017. The game acts as a prequel to the popular 2003 game. However, since its reveal, Ubisoft has been silent about the game’s development. It has popped up now and then during a financial report but the company hasn’t provided any solid update on the state of the development.

That changed last night when the official Beyond Good and Evil X account commented on the game. In a thread detailing the upcoming Beyond Good and Evil 20th Anniversary release, the account simply stated “Yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development, and we cannot wait for you to discover more about Jade’s past in the 20th Anniversary Edition.”

While this isn’t the best update fans could ask for, it has broken the 3-year silence from Ubisoft. The studio uploaded the last content for the project back in 2018 when it released a “new gameplay update” showing off co-op, vehicle customization and dogfights. It then confirmed back in 2021 that “development was progressing well”.

We don’t know how far Beyond Good and Evil 2 is into its development. Given that it has been seven years since the reveal and six years since the first gameplay video, one would think it was almost ready. However, given that the game was developed during the covid-19 pandemic, that likely set it back a bit.

Rumours claim that the project has been rebooted a number of times during its development too. So we don’t know how far the game was when it was reset.

Journey to System 3, for the prequel to one of Ubisoft’s most beloved games! Fight alongside unforgettable characters in a stunning new solar system, as you struggle for freedom and the right to determine your own fate among the stars. Play the adventure by yourself or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground. Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the spiritual successor to the cult classic, a prequel that will transport players into a profoundly multicultural world, capturing the spirit of the original with grandiose decors and intense dramas that play out across a vast universe. Through the Space Monkey Program, Ubisoft Montpellier will be developing the game alongside its community of fans.

With Beyond Good and Evil 20th Anniversary Edition launching today, hopefully, fans can share enough excitement on the series to motivate more than just an “it is still being developed” social media post.
