The game is NOT in development hell.
For those of you who’ve been wondering just where the hell Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been recently, and if it even exists anymore, don’t worry- it still exists. However, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot has said that the game’s development has been put on the backburner due to the development of recent Rayman games.
Michel Ancel, who’s supposed to be working on Beyond Good and Evil 2, has been working on Rayman Legends these days, while previously he was working on Rayman Origins.
“What’s very important is that Michel Ancel is kind of doing too many things at the same time,” Guillemot told Polygon.
“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.”
However, the game is still very much in Ubisoft’s plan for the future. “It’s really a game that we’ve been working, we have worked on, and is a game that we want to do. But there are so many things that have to be done that, you know, this one is going to come in line at one point, but at the moment Michel is really on Rayman Legends.”
