Ubisoft Forward has come and gone, and it was a fairly decent show overall. There were plenty of reveals for new games, updates on existing titles, and a slew of trailers for fans of the company’s games to check out. At the same time though, there were some notable absences from the show that left us with five unanswered questions we have after Ubisoft’s E3 2021 Showcase.
What’s the Status of Beyond Good and Evil 2?
Unanswered Questions We Have After Ubisoft’s E3 2021 Showcase
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the White Whale of Ubisoft’s catalogue of upcoming games.
Teased to be in development since 2008, the game is constantly warbling between rumors of cancellation and revamped development. We’ll see stretches of years that are barren of news about the game, only for a year to come around where there are trailers, gameplay demos, and teasers galore.
And yet, with each reveal, it feels more and more like a game that will never come out. The gameplay proposed and teased by each video appears more insane and demanding tech-wise than the last, making the game feel like an impossible project to complete even for a sizable and experienced development team.
With this in mind, and yet another barren year now in the books, the question has arisen: What’s the status on the game? Has the ambition of the project gotten away from the developers yet again? And if so, where does that leave the project? Will it ever release, or is it doomed to be that Ubisoft title that is always being built upon?
