No doubt, more than one spectator was surprised to see Beyond Good & Evil 2 during the Ubisoft conference in E3 2017. This is because Michael Ancel, who is in charge of the project, said that we would not know anything new about the game during this important event.


After revealing another trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2, Ancel talked to the website PC Gamer about the current state of development of this expected title. To start, the creative said that this new title is closely linked with the first game, because it will be a prequel that will allow us to know the story of 2 new characters.

Something that will be different in Beyond Good & Evil 2 and which players will notice immediately, is the size of their world, even Ancel compared the dimensions of their game with those of Grand Theft Auto: “You can get out of the Chinese restaurant, jump into your spaceship, go across the atmosphere, and go into your giant spaceship, and then change the planet. And all this does no loading, and you can be attacked whenever it’s happening. It’s like GTA but in space, in three dimensions,” Ancel said.

On the other hand, the developer assured that they decided to show a new breakthrough now that they already have the ideal technology to create the game: “We waited for three years just working on the technology, so that now you can really travel across space, planets. But not empty planets. Or not empty, generated, whatever planets. Real planets with cities, logical connection between the cities. And even all the natural events that you could have on these kind of planets, gravity, all the moons, and all these things. We needed to make sure, before coming here today, making sure that we will deliver the game,” says the creative.

Although we still do not know when Beyond Good & Evil 2 will arrive on the market, it is always good to know that the project is on track and meets the expectations of its creators.
