For the second time this week, AGB has posted screens of what appear to be in-engine shots of Beyond Good & Evil 2. Have a look below, but just know that we can’t confirm them. Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel said earlier this week the game was in development for next-gen systems and will contain parkour-like gameplay similar to the Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed franchises. The game was first announced during Ubisoft’s Ubidays event in 2008, and there’s still no word on when it will release.

Looks like Beyond Good and Evil 2 is definitely on hold, according to a tweet from Gamersyde.
According to the site, confirmation of this came from Ubisoft which said that the game was “on hold for now.”
Last month, Ubisoft’s North America’s president Laurent Detoc, said that a team has been working on some BGAE “stuff” and despite the Ubidays video and screen leaks, the game’s not coming anytime soon as the series’ future is still up in the air.
We will send off a mail to Ubisoft to see if we can get a response.

Ubisoft’s North America’s president, Laurent Detoc, has said that a team has been working on some BGAE “stuff” and despite the Ubidays video and screen leaks, the game’s not coming anytime soon as the series’ future is still up in the air.
“Whether or not it comes out remains to be seen anyway, but we didn’t want to abandon that IP because it has a cache and authenticity about it,” Detoc told IndustryGamers. “There’s something very pure about that game and it’s too bad that we were not able to build it as an IP at the time.
“I didn’t say there’s definitely going to be another game. I said something had leaked, which means we’ve been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there’s going to be another game or not, that’s something for the future. But getting to your question as to why there’s work on the IP again, it’s a creative people business; the creative talent is interested in it and possibly exploring how to do it from a new angle.
“I’ll tell you, I didn’t know about the leak and neither did my boss. The problem when you do stuff like [intentional leaks] is if you get caught it’s really bad. Looking back at our history, I don’t remember anything we’ve done of that nature.”

Ubisoft will not be showing a playable version of Beyond Good & Evil 2 at E3 this year.
“We’re not doing any BG&E2 stuff at E3,” a Ubisoft rep told UGO when it asked to book an appointment.
The site goes on to say that it’s possible the game might make an appearance during the Ubisoft press conference, but don’t bet on it just yet.
Attendees will just have to be satisfied with Assassins Creed 2, Avatar and Splinter Cell, we reckon.

Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel has told All Gamers that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be bigger, more immersive and include more investigations.
Loads of returning characters are expected, and it’ll retain the spirit of the first game, the developer said.
Ancel also mentioned that due to the constraints of PS2′s Emotion Engine last time out, the firm did not make the game the way it was envisioned. That’s all changed for the sequel, he said.
The game’s currently in pre-production, so it’s going to be a while before a concrete release date is announced along with platforms.
