Beyond Good and Evil 2 received a wide range of praise for its first game back in 2003, and the title was nominated for numerous gaming awards, leading to a desire from designer and writer Michael Ansel for a sequel. After that, Ubisoft unveiled the game in 2017. Since then, rumors of development hell have swirled around Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Beyond Good and Evil 2's development may be picking up in the near future. Ubisoft even listed the game as in active development in early July. This doesn't imply that the game would be released anytime soon, but it does indicate that work is underway.
Sarah Arellano announced on Twitter that she would be joining Beyond Good and Evil 2 as the project's lead writer. Previously, Arellano has worked as a narrative designer at Blizzard, writing for World of Warcraft. The sequel to the Saints Row reboot is expected to be released in August 2022.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is in a good position to confirm that the game's story is still in the works, implying that the rest of its development is still in progress. However, the game's silence is difficult to tell from its current state.
Despite the fact that Beyond Good and Evil 2 isn't completely abandoned, many gamers assumed that the game would be canceled someday, and there were even some Beyond Good and Evil 2 designers anticipating that change.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is reportedly in the works.
