Fans eager to learn more about Beyond Good and Evil 2 at E3 2019 are in for some bad news, though it comes with a silver lining.
In a blog post made to Beyond Good and Evil 2’s official site, developers Ubisoft and Ubisoft Montpelier revealed that they would not be showing the game at E3 2019.
Fortunately, it was for a good reason. The team working on the game will instead be focusing on developing and honing the title, with a new livestream of the game’s progress set to be held on June 5 at 6 p.m. CEST.
They’ll likewise have more to show in the future, though no specific dates were given for when these reveals would be made or how.
“We look forward to sharing more with you, including new gameplay footage, when the time is right,” the developers wrote.
Rumored to be in development for several years before its official announcement in 2017, Beyond Good and Evil 2 is a prequel to the original game set in the same universe.
In it, players take the role of a member of a space-faring crew, traveling to different planets and engaging in open world, third person-action gameplay.
Though the first game’s protagonist Jade won’t be directly involved in the plot, she and other characters from the first game are set to be mentioned and play certain roles in the games narrative.
Since its announcement, the game has received several livestreams dedicated to documenting its development progress, with the title’s developers going over gameplay mechanics and features new and old that will be included in the title.
All of the game’s previous development livestreams can be found on the game’s official website.
