Speaking to Next-Gen and Ubidays yesterday, Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot said that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will be a more casual game than the original, a beloved title that flopped so hard it nearly broke its nose.

“We saw with Beyond Good & Evil that so many customers were extremely happy with the game,” he said. “We had a different audience at that time. We had more core gamers than casual gamers than we have today.

“We think the game was probably a little too difficult for the general gamers at that time. We’re going to make it more accessible and make sure that it’s really done for the new generation that’s come into videogames.”
