Beyond Good & Evil 2 Really is Happening After All

Beyond Good and Evil 2

Revealed with stunning trailer

It had seemed for the longest time as though the elusive sequel to PS2 cult classic Beyond Good & Evil would never happen. But it actually jumped out of hiding today during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference via a stunning trailer. 

A teary-eyed Michel Ancel – series creator who is also famed for the colourful Rayman series – introduced the game accompanying a heartfelt thank you to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. It’s hard to imagine many other publishers allowing a sequel to such an underappreciated IP, after all.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 will take place before the events of the original game, and in the trailer below we’re introduced to a distinct ragtag group of characters set in a colourful and socially diverse world – and there was also mention of a seamless online environment. Hmmmmm.

No release date was announced and details remain scarce, but it looks like it really is happening. Hallelujah!
