Ubisoft currently focused on the next generation of consoles.
The good news, as it always seems to be, is that Ubisoft’s Beyond Good & Evil 2, the sequel to their cult classic platforming stealth title, is still alive. At Gamelab, Game Reactor Spain spoke to creator Michel Ancel and whether the game would be currently possible on the present generation of consoles.
Ancel stated that, “I think [on current platforms] Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible, but it’d be painful. It’s always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not on the optimizations or things like that.
“Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we’re working on them. We’re trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon”.
Does this mean we’ll be seeing it on the PS4 or Xbox One in the near future? If Mirror’s Edge could return after a long wait, then why not? Keep the hope alive, people.
