Ubisoft announced a partnership with HitRecord today, a company headed up by actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
HitRecord is a collaborative creative agency, essentially. Ubisoft wants artists, writers, and musicians to submit work to them. The best stuff will appear in Beyond Good and Evil 2, giving the game a ‘real world’ connection.
Here’s the trailer announcing the thing:
During the show, it wasn’t clear what the deal was with these collaborative works – would contributors even be paid? Gordon-Levitt has since cleared things up on Twitter.
You are super right. Huge oversight. I think script got trimmed at last minute and we fucked that up. It’s hugely important to me that @hitrecord pays artists fairly. Since 2010 we’ve paid community almost $3 million https://t.co/oauU4IUiyE

The people who contribute to the game will be paid – hopefully fairly – for their work, so that’s great news. Now pop off and help Ubisoft make the thing, eh?
