And now it's time for our semi-regular feature: let's all close our eyes and hope really hard that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is going to happen some day, despite the lack of firm confirmation or evidence to suggest that it will. It worked for Mirror's Edge 2 dammit, it can work for this - and series creator Michael Ancel is only too happy to fuel our optimism. This time, he's suggesting the game could be re-announced in the next year.
Beyond Good and Evil 2
We used the only viable fuel source with the world's only time machine to visit E3 2014, and bring back the gaming news of the future for you, our loyal readers. The haters will say we could have done something more beneficial for humanity with this singular opportunity, but we usually just ban people like that. What new boxes will you be able to plug into your TV? Will everyone own a Rift? Do your emotional scars from Game of Thrones Season 3 ever heal? We have the 100 percent accurate, non-speculative answers to all this and more.
Could Ubisoft be gearing up for a re-introduction of its long anticipated sequel, Beyond Good & Evil 2? Recent activity on the company's Facebook page would suggest "er, maybe". A timeline photo featuring series protagonist Jade's pig-uncle Pay'J was posted, along with the cryptic phrase, "We’re a bit busy prepping for E3. Time to call in some reinforcements."
For Beyond Good and Evil fans, the wait for a sequel has been something of an emotional rollercoaster. A rubbish rollercoaster admittedly, one that oscillates between "this is going to take forever" and "oh god, it's actually never going to happen." In that spirit comes today's news: yes, it is going to happen, but yes, it's still going to take a while.
