Ubisoft has continued to assure those anticipating the sequel to the well-received adventure game that it is still in development, but now we know a bit more on why there has been little movement on the game.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 in 'active creation'

It's always nice to have a reminder that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is actually still coming. Ubisoft has never said it's been cancelled, mind, but is so quiet that we always feel a little concerned. Splendid news, then, that creator Michel Ancel has again piped up again to say yes, it is being worked on.

How Beyond Good & Evil 2 made Rayman Origins possible

How Beyond Good & Evil 2 made Rayman Origins possible

Rayman Origins is one of the most gorgeous 2D games ever created. The "UbiArt" framework used to create the game produced spectacular results, and surprisingly, was born from technology developed for the perpetually in-limbo Beyond Good & Evil 2.

"It was a continuation of what we were doing with Beyond Good & Evil 2 -- a visual pattern generating-based engine," Ubisoft designer Michel Ancel said.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 concept art spotted

Ubisoft has a weird, semi-neglectful relationship with Beyond Good & Evil 2. The company keeps reassuring us that it's still an active project, only to then forget to say or show anything about it for months at a time. Most recently we heard that the game is too ambitious for this generation, but that hasn't stopped series creator Michel Ancel from showing off concept art at the Montpellier in Game 2011 conference.

Fans might still be hoping to play it sometime in this generation, but Ubisoft has moved away from that goal and is now talking about ambitious plans for future consoles.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 still searching for a home

Conspicuously absent from Ubisoft's E3 press briefing was Beyond Good & Evil 2. Apparently the game has been put on hold, and may even get pushed to the next generation of consoles, according to project lead Michel Ancel. "Before Rayman we were working on Beyond Good & Evil 2," Ancel told Joystiq. "And the project is still on the tracks. I'd love to come back to it."

Ubisoft: only unnanounced games were canceled

When Ubisoft announced its less-than-stellar financial results last night, it also terminated unnamed projects as part of a restructuring for the coming year. We feared this might mean the end for games we haven't heard from in a while, like I Am Alive and Beyond Good & Evil 2. Apparently, not to worry.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 'More Accessible' Than Original, Says Ubisoft

The sequel to Ubisoft's action-adventure title Beyond Good & Evil will appeal to casual gamers moreso than the first game, Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot said at the recent Ubidays press event in Paris.
