Maybe the reason we never got Beyond Good & Evil 2 is because creator Michel Ancel was too busy with a new IP.
And we're okay with that. During Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference today, BG&E and Rayman guru Ancel stepped to the stage and unveiled a brand new exclusive PlayStation 4 title called Wild .
It's in development at start-up developer Wild Sheep Studios, a French team of which Ancel is the leader. This new effort will boast a fresh open world that is about the size of Europe. Set 10,000 years in the past ("10,000 B.C." anyone?), the game will feature realistic weather and seasons, and players can assume the role of a human or in fact, any living creature. If you wish to be a wolf, a bear, an eagle, or whatever, the choice is yours.
The trailer is extremely ambitious and the world is especially pretty. We're still not sure what the goal of the game really is but for now, we'll just ogle and drool.
