Beyond Good and Evil 2 is actually happening

, | News

It’s been a rumor for years, but it’s finally, officially going to happen. Ubisoft is working on Beyond Good and Evil 2. The original 2003 game was meant to be the first chapter in a trilogy, so fans have been waiting a long time for the story to move forward. A 2011 remaster fueled speculation that Ubisoft might be reviving the series, but all was quiet regarding a true sequel until creator Michel Ancel posted a pre-production image on Instagram for an unspecified game. The latest post from the publisher confirms that Ancel and Ubisoft Montpellier are collaborating on the long-awaited second installment.

In related news, Beyond Good and Evil will be free from Ubisoft beginning on October 12th through the company’s Ubi30 celebration. If you haven’t played it yet, this may be a good time to find out why people have been obsessed with this title for over a decade.
