According to the latest rumors shared by the well-known insider Tom Henderson, the development of Beyond Good & Evil 2 is at a standstill, so much so that according to some developers working on the project, the game is now close to cancellation .
As usual, the deep throat shared his “tip” on Twitter, where he says that development is in crisis due to the absence of a creative direction , which was further aggravated when in September last year Michel Ancel left. the world of video games and therefore also the direction of the project.
Furthermore, it would appear that the game is not suited to Ubisoft’s future goals and ambitions. The situation is so gray that apparently for some developers the official cancellation is now only a matter of time.
“The game is suffering a development crisis from a lack of creative direction since the title went into development, which was worsened by Michael Ancel’s departure from the studio in September 2020.” says Henderson.
“What’s worse, is that the game currently doesn’t fit with Ubisoft’s future ambitions and goals with future titles. The game has been described as “Skull & Bones 2.0″ and although the game hasn’t been canned officially, some developers believe it’s a matter of time before it is.”
Tom Henderson is a rather prolific source of information and leaked from the gaming world, but we are still talking about unofficial information to be taken with a grain of salt.
It must be said, however, that the last time we saw Beyond Good & Evil 2 in action was in 2018 . In short, despite the promises of Ubisoft and the job announcements related to the project , we would not be too surprised if the game was actually canceled.
