It has been seemingly ages since we last heard of Beyond Good & Evil 2. Enough for some to wonder if the game is still on track. Which is an understandable assumption, given how Ubisoft has exhibited a striking lack of interest towards the project since the very beginning.
But it's still happening. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained to Polygon that the genius behind the game Michel Ancel, who can be best described as the publisher's very own homegrown version of Shigeru Miyamoto, remains passionate about the game.
Problem is, he's simply too busy working on other projects:
"… Michel Ancel is kind of doing too many things at the same time… He was working on Rayman Origins last year, and he's working a lot on Rayman Legends this year. So, you know, when he does that, he kind of puts too much of his time on the other projects that he has… The fact is, that working on Legends is slowing the process on Beyond Good and Evil 2."
Rayman Legends is due for the Wii in March of next year. Hopefully once that's finally finished, he can turn his attention towards Jade and company once more.
