Beyond Good & Evil 2 in development crisis – could face cancellation

An insider claims that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is in development hell, although one developer insists it will release eventually.



Four years have passed since Beyond Good & Evil 2 was officially announced, but Ubisoft has failed to provide any meaningful updates on its development. There remains no release window and we still don’t even know which platforms it’s aiming for.



It’s easy to dismiss the game as vapourware at this point and, if noted insider Tom Henderson is to be believed, its own developers think it’s only a matter of time until Ubisoft outright cancels it.



In a series of tweets, Henderson says he has heard that Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been in a development crisis due to a lack of creative direction since development began. The abrupt departure of Michel Ancel , who directed the original Beyond Good & Evil, didn’t help, although he apparently hadn’t been directly involved in development for some time beforehand.



Henderson adds that the game no longer aligns with Ubisoft’s future ambitions, with it being compared to pirate game Skull & Bones , which has suffered an even longer and equally troubled development cycle.




What’s worse, is that the game currently doesn’t fit with Ubisoft’s future ambitions and goals with future titles. The game has been described as “Skull & Bones 2.0” and although the game hasn’t been canned officially, some developers believe it’s a matter of time before it is. — Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) November 12, 2021




Henderson is likely referring to Ubisoft’s revised focus on live service and free-to-play games . While this doesn’t mean the company will stop making single-player games entirely, something like Beyond Good & Evil 2 may not be as much of a priority anymore, as it has been described as a single-player adventure with cooperative multiplayer, with nary a mention of microtransactions.



Following Henderson’s claims, he was apparently contacted by one of the developers on Beyond Good & Evil 2. They told him that the game is still in development and could potentially release sometime in 2024 or 2025, which is still three years away at least.

Even without Henderson’s comments, it’s obvious that the game is going through some kind of crisis behind the scenes. When it was first announced, it looked more like No Man’s Sky than the Zelda-esque action adventure that was the original game.



What’s more, despite the name, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is not a sequel to the original game. Instead of continuing the adventures of protagonist Jade like most fans wanted/expected, it’s instead a prequel set long before Jade was even born.
