Ubisoft: progress on Rayman Legends “is slowing” Beyond Good and Evil 2′s production

Tuesday, 13th November 2012 16:24 GMT By Nick Akerman

Remember when Beyond Good and Evil 2 seemed like it wasn’t far away? No, me neither. Nevertheless, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has recently opened up about the long-awaited sequel. He indicates the game is still being worked on, even if progress is remarkably slow.

Speaking to Polygon, Guillemot suggested Michel Ancel is still keen to work on the game, although his time must be split across numerous projects.

“What’s very important is that Michel Ancel is kind of doing too many things at the same time,” he said. “He was working on Rayman Origins last year, and he’s working a lot on Rayman Legends this year. So, you know, when he does that, he kind of puts too much of his time on the other projects that he has.”

“So the fact is, that working on Legends is slowing the process on Beyond Good and Evil 2.”

This doesn’t mean Beyond Good and Evil 2 will never see the light of day.

“It’s really a game that we’ve been working, we have worked on, and is a game that we want to do,” continued Guillemot.

“But there are so many things that have to be done that, you know, this one is going to come in line at one point, but at the moment Michele is really on Rayman Legends.”

At least Ubisoft hasn’t quietly brushed this one aside. Right now, we’ll have to stick to the HD version of the original game, which was released on consoles in 2011.

    rayman, always with the rayman. Jeez, we just finished and shipped a rayman, but damn, a new console’s coming so we need to be there day one no matter what – Michel, you’re not doing much, now…Then rayman us up some more rayman. We’ll call it “Exclusive Rayman”, and we’ll include a classic chiptune soundtrack to collect throughout, because, y’ know…New console!

    After, we’ll go for something different. FutureRabbids, because of all the rayman.

    Eh. To be honest? I’m not so bothered any more that we won’t see a sequel, or that we may not. The aesthetics they’ve shown so far of what they’re planning look horrendous compared to the style and flair of the original game. At this point, all they could really do is dilute the experience by turning it into triple-trAsh.

    Can’t blame them forwanting to making something that should sell well. Aka Rayman.
