Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel has recently founded his own indie studio with Wild Sheep Studio. It already has a game in development with 13 different staff members but that’s not the most significant news. Ubisoft has finally revealed that a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil 2 is happening and Ancel will be dividing his responsibilities between working at Wild Sheep Studio and Ubisoft Montpellier..

Speaking to Eurogamer, Ubisoft said, “In many ways, BG&E is an inimitable game – it appeals to all generations of gamers and is an inspiration behind many of Ubisoft Montpellier’s past and future games.

“It’s still far too early to give many details about this new title, but what we can say is that while Michel and the team at Ubisoft Montpellier are working with the core tenets of BG&E, they’re developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel and leverages next-gen technologies to deliver a truly surprising, innovative and exceptional game. The entire team is excited about the direction this extremely ambitious project is taking, and we’ll have more to share later, as it progresses.”

Ubisoft’s Xavier Poix further said that, “In addition to spending some of his time on this new venture, Michel is leading the creative development of select projects at Ubisoft Montpellier, including an extremely ambitious new title that is very close to his and the team’s heart.”

    They have been saying this exact same thing for what? 5-6 years now. Active development too early to show blah blah blah. If it weren’t for beyond we wouldn’t bsce prince of Persia (modern) because every prince game ran on beyonds engine and pieces of it power assassins creed so the work on that game has paid for itself via other IP so let’s get another game out UBI.

    People will buy it this time
