According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, production of the sequel to Beyond Good & Evil is going rather slowly due to project director Michel Ancel’s involvement in Rayman Origins last year and its Wii U exclusive sequel Rayman Legends this year.
Speaking to Polygon last week Guillemot explained:
What’s very important is that 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. So the fact is, that working on Legends is slowing the process on Beyond Good and Evil 2.
He assures gamers that they are working on the game, but with Ancel still working on Rayman Legends, it may take a while before we hear any real news.
A HD remastered version of Beyond Good & Evil was re-released in on the PS3 in 2011, but the original game was released in 2003. The game did not do well commercially, but since its initial release has gained something of a cult following and is regarded as critically very successful.
