Beyond Good & Evil 2

Beyond Good & Evil 2 remains in development at Ubisoft, and that's just about all the French publisher has to say on the matter. On the eve of the original game's 20th anniversary re-release, the series' official Twitter account posted a thread all about the PS5, PS4 remaster and said: "Yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development, and we cannot wait for you to discover more about Jade's past in the 20th Anniversary Edition!"

The update follows on from news that the Beyond Good & Evil: 20th Anniversary Edition will contain an all-new treasure hunt mission that serves as a narrative link between the first game and its in-development follow-up. It's bundled in with new Trophies, remastered visuals that support 60 frames-per-second at a 4K resolution, and new quality-of-life features like cross-save and the option to skip cutscenes. The digital version is out tomorrow and a phsyical edition is available via Limited Run Games, with pre-orders opening on 12th July 2024.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 has supposedly been in some form of development for well over a decade now, with our archives stretching back as far as 2010. In the many years since, there have been glimpses of the title here and there, with the odd trailer or screenshot, but it's never felt like a concrete project that's even close to completion. Ubisoft now assures fans the follow-up is still in development, but then it's been saying that for more than 10 years. At least the original game has the chance to shine once more on modern platforms.
