Beyond Good & Evil 2 Being Released After March 2010

It's rough out there for Beyond Good & Evil fans. After hints, rumors and even confirmation of an in-development sequel, the decision was ultimately made to wait for the next generation of consoles before releasing it. Why? Ubisoft's Michel Ancel had an answer in a recent interview with GamesRadar.

Citing "technical issues" on the sequel, Ancel points back to the early development days on the first game and the team's goals for it versus the vision that was realized in the finished product. 

"The first Beyond Good & Evil, when I sent the technical document to Sony, it was the time of the Emotion Engine on the PlayStation 2. We had the feeling that we could do whatever we wanted," he explained. "We sent them the document, it was about planets, going from planet to planet, towns to towns and all these things. But in the end, what we were really about to do was far less than what we wanted."

"And of course, the scope of Beyond Good & Evil is large – you’ve got the city, the ocean, the moon and the space ship," he continued. 

"But the space ship was designed to go from planet to planet, and it was frustrating to have those limitations. And my thing is that we really want to make the game that was previously imagined, with all this feeling of traveling. Mass Effect did a good job on that side, and I think that there are a lot of things to do to continue in that direction, with storytelling and a massive world."

So there's your explanation. Ancel wants to give you a better game. It seems so simple, and yet there are those out there who could probably take a lesson or two from that sort of attitude.
