Fans of Ubisoft’s original Beyond Good and Evil from 2003 have waited a long time for a sequel. It was announced at E3 2017 and showcased with a cinematic trailer at E3 2018, and now it’s being called a prequel to the original game and is being billed as a quadruple-A release. All the details you need to know about the Beyond Good and Evil 2 release date and the game itself can be found here, for those of you who are among the many fans who are curious about this.
From what we have seen so far, Beyond Good and Evil 2 has the potential to be just as groundbreaking as its predecessor. There must be a good reason why the release date for Beyond Good and Evil 2 hasn’t arrived yet, what with all the hoopla about players being able to buy their spaceship (or two) and explore a galaxy of worlds as freely as you do in No Man’s Sky. It’s going to have a significant impact. Uncertainty persists as to whether this is a negative development or not, but one thing is certain: its impact will be monumental.
It’s still unclear, though, when exactly players will be able to get their hands on this thrilling-sounding game. So, continue, and we’ll fill you in on all the latest details, and you can watch every trailer there is, too.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 Release Date Speculation
We are aware that the announcement for Beyond Good and Evil 2 was made quite some time ago, but there is currently no release date or even a release frame to discuss. Currently, it’s anyone’s guess.
Chief Financial Officer Frederick Duguet of Ubisoft was quoted as saying the studio was “progressing well” on the game by GamesRadar and TechRadar. But that was in July of 2021, and we haven’t heard anything more about it since then. Although we hope anything is revealed during the UbiForward presentation in September 2022, we have our doubts. So… Have realistic expectations for Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 Gameplay
This 2018 Beyond Good and Evil 2 UbiBlog features some exploration, ship movements, and combat gameplay from a pre-alpha copy of the game, so while there isn’t much to talk about in terms of gameplay, you can get a peek of what to expect.
We haven’t seen any recent gameplay footage, so it remains to be seen how accurate this trailer is in comparison to a 2022 build of the game. But we anticipate a similar appearance in the final version.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 trailers and more
We regret having to tell you that we just do not know what will happen in the game’s plot. This E3 2018 trailer gives us a taste of the cosmic adventure we’re in for, but it doesn’t go into much detail. It does, however, succeed in giving us a glimpse into the universe that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will bring to life, along with a peculiar British monkey.
In an interesting twist, it looks that Jade, the hero of Beyond Good and Evil, will play the villain in this story. It remains to be seen, however, how she ends up working as an investigative journalist for Pey’j.
Are we looking at one of the finest PlayStation 5 games and best Xbox games? Yes, please! At what point will we get further information? We don’t know for sure at this time. At this point, all we can do is keep our fingers crossed that everything is progressing smoothly with the sequel to Beyond Good and Evil and that the release date, whenever it may be revealed, won’t be pushed again.
Beyond Good & Evil 2 – what we know so far
The sequel to Beyond Good and Evil was first hinted at in 2008 at an event called Ubidays. During that event, Ubisoft showcased a trailer featuring Jade and Pey’j, the protagonists of their 2003 action adventure. However, after this clip, the development of the game was reportedly halted for the next decade.
2017’s E3 marked the game’s official return. Since the plot had been rewritten to serve as a prequel, neither Pey’J nor Jade made an appearance. Watch an “ambitious” gameplay demo from 2018 that was teased in the teaser, which featured a new group of characters called the Space Monkeys, right here.
Unfortunately, this iteration would have its own set of problems to solve. An early version of the game was originally scheduled to debut in 2019. Unfortunately, it now appears that the project, and Ancel’s departure from the games industry, will occur in 2020.
