is reporting that Beyond Good and Evil 2 ‘will not be released on current-generation consoles
’ as has been widely reported.
A release date for the game has not been announced.
The reason for the console no-show is, according to Ubisoft designer Michel Ancel, that ‘we are very far [into] development so we can’t go back now.
'We are targeting the next generation of consoles,
’ said Ancel.
The original Beyond Good and Evil suffered weak sales and critical acclaim when it was first released in 2003. It was re-released as Beyond Good and Evil HD
earlier this year.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced in May 2008
and still doesn’t have a release date three years later.
