Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said work on Beyond Good & Evil 2 has never stopped, and the team is continuing to hammer away on it.
Speaking with Kotaku at gamescom, Guillemot told the site it has to be “perfect”.
“We were, as we are, working on the game,” said Guillemot. “What is very important with this next product is that it will be perfect.
“Michel Ancel’s intention is to come [out] with something really exciting. But everybody needs a little bit of patience.”
Guillemot said Ubisoft had mixed feelings regarding the original, as it garnered glowing reviews but had lackluster sales.
“I would say the game was very well appreciated by the people who played it,” Guillemot said. “But we didn’t have enough people when it was launched. After its time it become a very recognized product.”
With Beyond Good & Evil 2, Guillemot expects the buzz already generated regarding a game that’s not even out yet will fuel the sales.
Ancel, the creative director, said in the past BG&E 2 was being developed with as few people as possible to maximize creativity.
