Michel Ancel’s animal adventure Wild is still happening

Here’s a nice-looking new shot to prove it

It’s been quiet enough on the Wild front that I was starting to fear for the game (especially as we’ve been far more focused on Beyond Good & Evil 2 as of late), but it seems to be coming along nicely.

On Instagram, designer Michel Ancel shared a new image, one that looks markedly better than the footage out of Paris Games Week back in 2015. He also promised to try and post screenshots regularly.

Wild, to quickly recap, is an open-world game in which you are a shaman who can inhabit animals — an eagle, a rabbit, or a bear, to name just a few. And unless the design has since changed, you can visit other players’ worlds and try to blend in with the AI to screw with your unsuspecting prey. The possibilities for unscripted hijinks are exciting, as is the chance to just roam the wilderness.

All told, I’m really looking forward to this one. I get the sense that Wild is far off (I’d be pleasantly surprised to see it come out this year), but regular updates will help make that wait feel manageable.
