Ubisoft today reported its financial earnings for the 2020/2021 fiscal year, revealing its strong commercial performance as the COVID-19 crisis continues. Future games like Assassin’s Creed Valhara are expected to be even more successful for next year. ..
However, one particular game was not included in any of its forward-looking statements. The long-awaited sequel “Beyond Good and Evil 2”. Thankfully, in a Q & A session later in today’s earnings announcement, Ubisoft CEO Eve Gilmo talked about the progress that followed. Former director Michel Ancel resigns.
“The game is going well. The world is really amazing — as you can see, Netflix has also decided to use that universe to make movies, so the (development) team has made a lot of progress. And the game is going very well. “
It’s a short but sweet answer, but it takes whatever we can get after the long development period of the game and the loss of director feels like an ominous danger signal.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 was first confirmed to be in development until 2007, then disappeared and reappeared at E3 in 2016. Since then, its progress has stopped further due to many delays and retreats.
However, there are plenty of real-world video and screenshots that highlight the shared sci-fi world and quirky characters in detail.
