Rayman: Origins sales could speed Beyond Good & Evil 2

Thursday, 10th November 2011 23:43 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Ubisoft has hinted that if Rayman: Origins is successful enough, producer Michael Ancel will be greenlit for other projects – like the long-requested sequel to Beyond Good & Evil.

“If all the people that love Beyond Good & Evil understand [Ancel] is more than a one trick pony and if Rayman: Origins does well, it gives him more leeway for other opportunities because he has to build up his studio,” Ubisoft’s Tony Key told Industry Gamers.

The recent success of the original Beyond Good & Evil is helping chances of a sequel, too.

“Beyond Good & Evil HD is doing very well on PSN and Xbox Live and there’s a lot of people coming back, and if they choose to do a sequel the audience is bigger than before,” Key said.

Rayman: Origins is a four player co-operative platformer, expected on PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 this month. The US gets it November 15, while PAL territories have to wait until November 25.

“Just like how Beyond Good & Evil had a whimsical style but included gameplay for adults, Rayman: Origins will appeal to more than just younger gamers,” Key assured potential Beyond Good & Evil 2 supporters.

Thanks, CVG.

    Then I have some bad news for Ubi: Releasing a platformer (Though a super awesome one) in the month that Call of Duty, Skyrim and Assassin’s Creed are coming out means only one thing: Retail and economical suicide for Rayman Origins.

    @1 Your comment plus the quote from Key leads me to wonder whether Rayman Origins isn’t being sent to die, as an excuse not to move forward on BG&E 2?

    Better fucking not be, Ubisoft.

    First you change the game to a full priced box release because it looked to be popular then you start to almost blackmail fans for sales.
    Is this some sort of elaborate joke?
