An Instagram post from Michel Ancel has revealed some details about Beyond Good & Evil 2’s development history. There were multiple playable prototypes of the game, and while all videos shown were running in real-time, the team was met with many technical problems. Concepts such as planet exploration, space travel, and cities were not only planned for the sequel, but the original Beyond Good & Evil as well. After taking a break to create Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, a team has now been assembled to create the game they always dreamed of making.
Beyond Good & Evil’s sequel is currently being rumored as a 2018 NX exclusive, and possibly even a semi-reboot for the series.
2008 Characters . The game was playable with many prototypes . All videos where realtime but we had too much technical issues . We wanted planet exploration , space travel , cities … All this was also supposed to be in BGE 1 … Instead of not doing the game of our dreams , we decided to return to 2d , have fun with Rayman and go back at work for Beyond good and Evil 2 . We still have loooooots of work but now the tech is ready and the team is fantastic !
