Beyond Good & Evil 2 'on hold'

Do you hear that? That's the sound of nerd anguish, my friend.

The announcement of Beyond Good & Evil 2 was something that many gamers had been longing for, and when it finally came it was like a dream come true. Unfortunately, the more time went on, the less Ubisoft seemed willing to talk about it, to the point where one executive even denied the game's confirmation. Now, the inevitable has happened -- Ubisoft has balked on the deal. 

Gamersyde's Colin Solal Cardo was the bearer of bad news, Tweeting the grim tidings: "I got confirmation at Cologne's Gamescom that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is on hold for now. No idea if it's def or temporary but it sucks."

Let's face it, we all had that sinking feeling that BG&E2 just might be too good to be true, and now it seems that Ubisoft has truly rained on our parade. With no clue given as to why the game is on hold, we can only guess, and my personal hypothesis is that Ubisoft got cold feet over the original game's less-than-stellar success. The publisher seemed to announce a sequel almost under duress, like its arm was twisted, and has now apparently decided to renege. 

Frankly, no announcement at all would be better than a bait-and-switch. Guess we'll just have to sit tight and wait to find out exactly what "on hold" means in this case.
