Yesterday we brought word that yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is in preproduction and waiting for a green light from Ubisoft. The French magazine in which creator Michael Ancel was interviewed also brings to light the game's intended platform -- the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Remember, this game still hasn't been officially approved by Ubisoft, so we don't know if it will ever definitely reach those platforms yet. Now that the gaming public knows a sequel is being drafted, however, I wouldn't like to be the Ubisoft rep that has to tell them it's not happening if things went that way. One only hopes that the threat of nerdy assassination prompts Ubi into making the right decision.
I really hope this comes to pass. Having the world of Hillys brought to life with the power of modern consoles is something I want to happen before I die.
