After more than a decade it is still very close to saying that Beyond Good and Evil 2 may be out

That’s the good news. The bad news is that, just shy of a decade after the first time we reported on a Ubisoft promise that BG&E2 was still in the works but would likely be a good way off, there’s still not even a hint of when we might get our hands (or even just lay our eyes) on it. When asked whether it might appear in Ubisoft’s fiscal year 2024—which, for the record, would put it sometime after May 1, 2023—chief financial officer Frederick Duguet said, “We are progressing well with Beyond Good and Evil 2, but it’s too early to tell you more at this stage.”

Story Highlights

  • Despite all that, Ubisoft re-affirmed today that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still happening. In its latest quarterly financial report, Ubisoft said that its plan to expand premium game releases over the coming years includes a “revival of [a] fan-favorite franchise with Beyond Good and Evil 2.”

  • And that’s the extent of it: Confirmation that Ubisoft still hasn’t abandoned the project, and absolutely no commitment beyond that. After the past few years of silence, it’s good to know that Ubi hasn’t completely forgotten about BG&E2, but I have a distinct feeling that it’ll be a long time yet before we get anything more substantial than that.
