Remember Beyond Good & Evil 2? Remember the swearing monkey? Remember when it was meant to be getting a beta in 2019? Well, to put it bluntly, we wouldn't get your hopes up for this thing ever releasing. As if it wasn't already obvious, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is probably in serious development hell — and a new report from Bloomberg feels like a nail in the coffin.
The report states that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in pre-production following five years of development. In other words, Ubisoft just hasn't been able to get this game off the ground. Remember, a gameplay demonstration was supposed to happen in 2021, but it never materialised, and then rumours started to swirl regarding a deeply troubled dev cycle, with insiders claiming that the title was still "several years away".
It's crazy to think that Beyond Good & Evil 2 was first announced all the way back in 2017 for PlayStation 4. The only gameplay footage we ever really got was in 2018 — but now it's abundantly clear that it was nowhere near being a finished product.
Were you still looking forward to Beyond Good & Evil 2? Do you ever think it's going to release? Give us a shrug in the comments section below.
