Good news first: Beyond Good & Evil 2 is definitely alive. If Ubisoft corporate’s overly indulgent “yes” didn’t convince you, perhaps a reassuring pat on the back from series creator Michel Ancel will do the trick.
Now the not-quite-so-good news: Ancel has big, big plans for the game, but he wants to carry them out with a tiny team. Translation: more waiting. A lot more waiting.

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.

The story says that between 10-12 people are working on the game.
Don’t blame us if some of this is lost in translation.
Beyond Good & Evil was probably the most criminally ignored videogame in living memory, a genre-busting adventure involving political intrigue, photo-journalism and a hovercraft. Please, in the names of all the baby Jesuses, make this game.
