That's really all I can say. We were all worried that Beyond Good & Evil 2 had either been scrapped or, at the very least, put on the back burner. Ubisoft kept saying it was still in the works, but they were always annoyingly vague.
Now, we've got some encouraging update details from renowned designer Michel Ancel. In speaking during an interview at the Toulouse Game Show in France (as reported by Gameranx ), the Rayman creator said the long-awaited sequel is in "an action creation stage" at the present time," and their goal is to make it as good as humanly possible. He adds that it's a very ambitious title and talks about other games that have served as inspiration:
" …we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror's Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective.
We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirror's Edge but the game itself is very different."
Interesting. We just know we wanna see some gameplay, which we've been pining for ever since seeing the debut trailer way back in 2008. In the meantime, if you're not familiar with the original, we highly recommend grabbing the high-definition remake on the PlayStation Store. It's well worth your time and money.
