Ubisoft did not share any release window or platform for the game just yet, promising that they will be announced at "a later date". It's also, admittedly, still pretty rough around the edges. Unfortunately, it seems that the game is unlikely to come to the Switch. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is actually a prequel, taking place before Jade (the hero of the original) was born. There will be direct links between the story from the first game with Sebastian having to re-enter STEMS to save his daughter. Eventually, Ancel and his team at Ubisoft's Montpellier studio chose to switch directions and create a prequel.
This will be a different game when compared to the first installment, though.
"Beyond Good & Evil2 represents everything that we love about making and playing games. Because we have the technology for it".
After publishing a series of images in his Instagram account related to the presentation of Beyond Good & Evil 2, a group of fans questioned Michel Ancel about WiLD. Initially used back in 2009, LyN was last used for "ZombiU" back in 2012 prior to "Beyond Good and Evil 2". That was No Man's Sky's achilles' heel - a game that also promised a seamless, very big lovely galaxy to explore, but gave players little to do there. "Maybe you're delivering pizza". And news that it's a prequel is a change from how the game was previously discussed. When the sun sets on a planet, that's because the planet you're on has rotated on its axis. "Play the adventure by yourself or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground". There's also a shared world component, as certain in-universe events will happen for all players in the game.
Starlink, a space exploration game you play by fitting pieces on actual toy spaceships. However, writing on Instagram, Michel Ancel said, "Hi, that registering thing is a little buggy as we did not mention any consoles yet". But at the same time, we want to have that feeling of completion. Whether it's video games, movies, tv, comics, or tech, you will likely find Kevin there. In fact, the development team is asking for ideas and feedback from fans via the "Space Monkey Program". That's why were many surprised by the announcement of a sequel years ago. It's being developed by Ubisoft Montpelier, in France, and the first trailer looks absolutely outrageous. They fly to a hidden ship where they hand the disk over to be unlocked. Either way, I will keep trying until I know more. If it is going to be on the Switch, or some sort of timed exclusive, we'll likely hear more about it in Nintendo's Direct stream tomorrow.
The trailer was met with nearly cathartic applause from an audience that had clearly been waiting years for the franchise's return.
