It has now been more than four years since Ubisoft followed the request of many fans with Beyond Good and Evil 2 and made a successor to the original from 2003 official. While there have been updates on the development after the announcement, the project has been suspiciously quiet lately. According to industry insider Tom Henderson, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is currently in an internal crisis. Accordingly, it seems the game – after the departure of Creative Director Michael Ancel at Ubisoft – to lack creative direction.
In a series of tweets, Tom Henderson also writes about the fact that Beyond Good and Evil 2 does not fit Ubisoft’s current plans. The publisher is currently focusing primarily on live service games and free-to-play titles that will be provided with new content over a longer period of time. Some sources at the insider even believe that it is only a matter of time before the project is discontinued by Ubisoft. Officially, the game is still in development. Beyond Good and Evil 2 is by the way not the only title that has to struggle with problems. The development of Skull and Bones is also not going smoothly at the publisher and is even said to have been completely restarted in 2020 (we reported).
