Beyond Good and Evil Creator Leaves Ubisoft, Sequel In Jeopardy?

In man-do-I-hope-this-isn’t-true news, Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel has evidently parted ways with Ubisoft Montpellier, along with another major developer from the team, over disputes regarding the much anticipated and enigmatic Beyond Good & Evil 2.

The rumor winds came blowing in from an interview translated on a NeoGaf thread. According to the post (which could also be wrong given that it’s a translation), Ancel’s departure was not only spurred by conflicts over BGE2, but that the game could now be in serious jeopardy, which, if true, depresses me in too many ways to count. Ancel is said to be forming his own company, and would focus on developing "classical" games.


Ubisoft hasn’t shared any details about the game since it was first announced back in 2008, and then teased at E3 2009 with a poster for the original game. Back in January, Ubisoft confirmed that BGE2 was still in development, but didn’t elaborate any further. Perhaps all this radio silence has been because of the supposed development drama unfolding around the project.

Beyond Good & Evil is one of my favorite games of all time, so I’m really pulling for this news to not be true. I’m currently waiting to hear back from Ubisoft. Stay tuned.
