industrygamers.com recently interviewed Ubisoft's Laurent Detoc. There wasn't much new info in the interview, but an interesting thing to note is that Detoc said Beyond Good & Evil 2 (despite its announcement and trailer at E3) may not be released, claiming "I didn’t say there’s definitely going to be another game".

Go to the source for the full interview.


[Discuss in the Beyond Good & Evil 2 forum]

IG: Most publishers make decisions based on sales, so what made Ubisoft decide to pursue Beyond Good and Evil again?

LD: “I didn’t say there’s definitely going to be another game [in the Beyond Good & Evil series]. I said something had leaked, which means we’ve been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there’s going to be another game or not, that’s something for the future. But getting to your question as to why there’s work on the IP again, it’s a creative people business; the creative talent is interested in it and possibly exploring how to do it from a new angle.”

    What the hell? So, they're working on a Beyond Good and Evil related project(or stuff, as he put it), but it's not a game?

    Then what is it?

    I never even played the first game, but this still interests me a bit...

    If by 'stuff' they meant that costume in PoP I'm going to choke a bitch.

    This was extremely misleading -- I've altered the post accordingly. As Drogo quoted, they have been working on the game, it's simply a case of whether or not it will be released.

    I've suspected this, we got a teaser like months ago right? Yet pretty much nothing else has surfaced since, no more trailers, barely if any info.

    Beyond Good and Evil isn't a big seller, I've heard the project was just to keep the director of the last game happy

      Generally a developing team doesn't have much if any control over a publisher, let alone a single developer.

    I hope it does get released. If that leaked video was actually ingame footage... wow.
