It’s been a long wait for fans of the original game (15 years), but Beyond Good & Evil 2 is now officially real.
Michel Ancel himself came out on the Ubisoft E3 stage to announce the prequel, literally crying with passion for the project.
We don’t know what platforms it’s coming to, and we don’t know the release date either. But you can rest easy knowing that it’s real.
Here’s the game’s synopsis:
System 3 has become the center of interstellar trade and colonization in the Milky Way of the 24th century, thanks to the creation of Hybrid slaves. While private enterprises fight over resources and power, the first colonists weave together the rich and diverse spiritual and cultural heritages of Old Earth to give meaning to their existence. In this new era of piracy, we will rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain at the helm of massive star-faring vessels, adventuring alongside crews of colorful characters to fight for freedom and the right to determine our own fate among the stars!
