Ubisoft Says Its Still Working On Beyond Good & Evil Sequel

We know you've probably heard this before, so we don't blame you if you're a little skeptical, but it sounds like even after the formation of his new studio, Wild Sheep, Michel Ancel is continuing his work on the follow up to the 2003 cult hit.

Yesterday, Michel Ancel announced that he was forming a new indie studio where he would be free to work on new creative projects, but his next Ubisoft project might not be that new after all. According to IGN, Ancel's next project is a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil, a game that has already been in development for a long time.

“It's still far too early to give many details about this new title, but what we can say is that while Michel and the team at Ubisoft Montpellier are working with the core tenets of BG&E, they're developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel and leverages next-gen technologies to deliver a truly surprising, innovative and exceptional game," Ubisoft told IGN. "The entire team is excited about the direction this extremely ambitious project is taking, and we'll have more to share later, as it progresses."

It sounds like this project won't actually interfere with Ancel's work at Wild Sheep, because that studio is still working on a different unannounced title. Hopefully we'll hear more about that soon.

Our Take
I'd be more excited about this if there was more substantial information surrounding it. I feel like Ubisoft has been dangling this BG&E carrot in front of us for a long time, so until the company is ready to show us some actually "official" gameplay, I don't think I'll get my hopes up. I just keep telling myself, "Don't get your hopes up! Don't get your hopes up! Don't get your hopes up!"
