When Ubisoft released its financial results for fiscal year 2008-2009 (April 2008-March 2009) today, it also outlined what the publisher has coming for the upcoming fiscal year 2009-2010 (April 2009-March 2010), and there was a massively anticipated game missing from the lineup: Beyond Good & Evil 2.
Michael Ancel's next epic wasn't listed there for a reason, Ubisoft explained to me this morning. Prepare yourself for disappointment: Beyond Good & Evil 2 will not be released until after March 2010.
"The game [Beyond Good & Evil 2] will not be releasing this fiscal year," a Ubisoft spokesperson told me over e-mail.
Sorry, readers; sounds like we're in for a long wait before seeing much of Beyond Good & Evil 2. And if the game's not being released until well into 2010, maybe Ubisoft won't show the incredible trailer that leaked a few weeks back. I just want a high-definition version, Ubisoft. That's not asking for much, is it?
