We know for a fact that work has commenced on Beyond Good & Evil 2 over at Ubisoft. The news was confirmed by the company a few weeks back. Now Let’s Play Gaming claim to have fresh information about the game which their source has said is a reboot rather than what we expected to be a traditional sequel. What is also interesting is the source reconfirmed that it’s an exclusive for the Nintendo NX and that a CG trailer for the game will be showcased at the platform’s reveal. Ubisoft is apparently planning to release the game in 2018.
it will partially retell Jade’s origin tale from Beyond Good & Evil, flesh out Peyj’s backstory, then continue to extrapolate on the ending of the original game. The intention is that players who have not played the original will be able to jump into the new game, which will feature a subtitle rather than a number at the end of its title, and understand both who Jade is and what drives Pey’j. It also seeks to provide closure to fans of the original wondering what the cliffhanger at the end meant for the series’ ongoing plot.
