Beyond Good and Evil 2 “still in progress”

Posted By | On 13th, Jun. 2011

Michel Ancel, that clever bloke behind Beyond Good and Evil and the Rayman games, has reassured fans that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still in the works.

The game has seen a variety of set backs and delays since it was first announced in 2008 but, despite moving on to work on Rayman Origins, Ancel assures fans that the game is “still in progress.”

“As a game developer that’s exactly the sort of game you want to work on your whole lifetime,” he said. “So yes, we are really thinking and we have lots of ideas. More than that, we already have a lot of gameplay, characters are done, so it’s still in progress.”

Though he confirmed the game is in the pipeline, he also hinted in an interview with Joystiq that we may have to wait till the next generation of consoles is upon us. “With this kind of game, we can do prototypes on very high-end PCs and we can really try to play in the kind of future-console style hardware. So, it’s just a question of saying, ‘Okay, do we cut everything and rebuild to these consoles, or do we try to move forward?'”

Good times all around, but I sure hope it comes sooner rather than later.
