Beyond Good & Evil 2 Seems To Be Only Coming To Xbox One, PlayStation 4, And PC

The announcement which closed the Ubisoft conference on Sunday was a big one. Yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is in development, but it was unclear which platforms the game would come to. I was going to post about the announcement but judging from the developers talk it sounded like it is set to be a massive shared world adventure with state of the art visuals which could possibly count the Nintendo Switch out. You can now register for the Space Monkey Program which is a kind of beta but the platforms listed are Xbox One, PlayStation 4, And PC only. There’s absolutely no mention of the Switch. Also retailers are taking pre-orders for the game (this early? Yes) and there’s no Nintendo Switch option.

  1. Yea it’s a bunch of bullshit. Ubisoft just puts fucking dance games and stupid rabids game in the Switch.

    Oh and know new Monster Hunter on the Switch either. Capcom claimed MH Worlds was basically MH5 and it will not be coming to the Switch. How did Nintendo fuck that up?

    1. Nintendo didn’t fuck anything up. All of these games would easily run on switch and developers came right out and said that they would run. Porting also doesn’t seem to be the problem. it’s just them being lazy about it. Also they just put out bullshit arguments about it. most of them say: We could, it would run, but there are no plans at the moment.

      The switch is doing great, has good sales and the installbase grows. There’s no reason to not put your game on switch.

      1. So what is your reasoning why they all abandon it? The switch is a fast selling console with a growing consumer-base. The developers outright stated that all of these games could easily run on the switch. Nintendo’s support seems to be great and there’s a lot of first party tiltes with a lot of hype around to help shifting more consoles.

        Why are developers abandoning the console then?

      2. It’s not as powerfull as you or according to you they claim it to be. I just started playing Horizon on PS4 wich I got as a present, and I doubt the Switch can run that, if I look at games like Mario. Besides they might still have to downgrade it for the Switch wich is a problem. Nintendo’s online system isn’t great eather. If the Switch had the same or better power than the others I’m sure these games would be released. The Gamecube had the power and the support.

      3. BTW I have heared the developers of Titanfall say it can’t run there game so the same can be said about the rest just look at the graphics of these games and compare them to everything Nintendo has shown us :God of War, Horizon DLC, Days Gone, Uncharted, Shadow of the Colossus , Monster Hunter World, Detroit Become Human, Destiny 2, Cod 2 , Spiderman , Metro Exodus , Assassins Creed, Anthem.

        Not one game I have seen on the Switch comes close to this. Not to mention Dragon quest wich has a Cartoon style runs smooth on ps4 but not on the switch as tons of youtube video’s can show you.

      4. I think if they porting a game that already exists in other consoles, the people will not buy it, UNLESS they put exclusive content just like in Skyrim and Rocket League and people will surely buy it.

        I hope to see exclusive content on Overwatch when this game will come out on the Switch.

        Tracer skin – inkling girl and Winston skin – Donkey Kong

        Can’t wait to see this happen.

      1. Who cares about sales if its a great game that will be a “Gem” in gaming history. Wii Golf got played by everyone and his mother that doesn’t make it a great game though. Ill take Mario or Zelda over it any day of the week.

  2. I said this all the way until E3. I’ll start worrying I’d by E3 we don’t have big 3rd party announcements. Switch already has more support than Wii U, but definitely not big games. I would have liked the Dragon Ball Z game, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite or Resident Evil, but not even Beyond Good and Evil came, which was sooo confirmed :(.

    1. It’s insane that Nintendo missed out on all those big releases. Dragon Ball, Marvel vs Capcom, MH5, Beyond G/E (which was rumored to be a Nintendo exclusive!) I think the Switch will still sell well, but it’s still a huge disappointment.

  3. People of this community! Fans, haters, naysayers, yaysayers! Please hear me out! If you wanna play PS4 games on your Switch, there’s a quite nice addon available (and in stock), it’s called the Playstation 4!
    It’s gonna be the only way to play PS4 games also in the future, so think about it! The Switch is great at what it does but always hoping for multiplatform games to be released on it won’t work. And no! NO! It’s not the 3rd parties who are just too “stupid”. It’s Nintendo’s business model which actually does quite a fine job for them. So either you are into it or you are not. And if you are not, then always whining about not being into Nintendo’s business model because you personally want them to be more like Sony or Microsoft won’t change anything. The change begins with YOUR attitude! NO! don’t turn away, let me finish what I have to say! Your attitude, that’s right! Either you live with the idea of only owning the one system that relies on it’s own ecosystem or you buy one of the consoles that are including 3rd parties as a mandatory element of their ecosystems. There’s no right or wrong way. But it’s your own approach and making a company responsible for your own approach is just bullshit, thank you, you can leave now.

    1. People want the games on the Switch because of the portability factor. The Switch is a more versatile and fun system that the PS4. What’s wrong with people wanting to play their favorite games on the superior console?

      And don’t think for one second fans don’t have the power to change developers minds about platform choice. It happens all the time.

      1. I own a PS4 and wouldn’t it be for some games that I really want to play, I would abandon the thing. My switch is getting more play time than my PS4. A lot more. It’s a console that you can take portable with the power of a normal console. Whyt would you want more?

      2. But not everything can run on it. It’s a ****ing handheld. Stop with nonsense, it’s not a PS4, it will not get many games. It will get Nintendo, some 3rd party exclusive content (ex. Rabids), and some multiplatforms games, that’s it. Stop asking The World.

    2. Sure, I’ll play this on my PC (which is of course much more powerful than a PS4). But if I had the choice, I’d definitely choose to play it on my Switch, even if it means downgraded graphics. The only reasons to get a PS4 over a gaming PC are a few interesting exclusives and a lower price.

  4. A PS4 is basically a gaming PC from 2013. You would call
    a gaming PC from 2013 superior to a Nintendo handheld/console hybrid that can run the latest frostbite engine? No way. I like my PS4 too, but it’s an inferior system to the Switch. Every time I play a PS4 game or any game for that matter I can’t help but to think how much I’d rather be playing it on the Switch.

  5. I believe Valid is saying be a realist and realize for the most part that scenario is not going to happen, which you can A, either supplement your console family or B, accept and be okay with knowing for the most part there will be 3rd party parity differences. I grew up a Nintendo gamer myself and will always support them in some form or fashion as their software products are flat out outstanding but I also realize for my preference I enjoy owning multiple consoles, doesn’t mean I wouldn’t rather have versions of games on my Switch that releasing on my Xbox or Playstation (rpgs, rts, platformers you damn right i would!) but I understand how business has been for the past decade or so…

  6. with developers now looking at developing games in 4k 60 frames per second or at the very least 1080p 60 frames per second with Advanced shading, I just think if you were in fewer Devs are going to want to downscale their games for the switch.

    It’s another 2 console Generation. 1 Nintendo console for Nintendo games and a standard PC console for the higher-end games.

    I think Microsoft’s decision to ask developers to create games that play on the Xbox one even if they’re developing on the Xbox One S or X wasn’t very smart but I sure am thankful that I don’t have to upgrade my Hardware to play the new games.

    if Nintendo did not announce Metroid Prime 4 I would be getting an Xbox x as soon as it came out, for now I think I’ll just bide my time playing the games that are coming out on the standard Xbox One and then buy a Nintendo switch Metroid Prime 4 bundle when it comes out, and with it gets you know Blade Chronicles 2 probably at a discount.

    Jesus I feel like I barely dodged another bullet from Nintendo. if I had gotten screwed for 3rd console generation I would have gone completely mad.

    1. I know it’s disappointing that many of these games are not going to come to switch but I’m glad to know that most of you have other gaming options.

      for the few of you that are still Nintendo exclusive hopefully the Nintendo games coming out are enough to buffer the blow of not getting the third party games again.

      if nitendo switch continues to sell really well I don’t think the third party situation will be nearly as bad as the Wii U. the third party games will probably just arrived late.

      1. Yeah. :/ We will never live in a world where we can have Nintendo games and 3rd party on a single console again. It’s not in Nintendo’s grand plan, and I’m sorry, I’ve been playing Mario, Kirby, DK, Yoshi (Mushroom kingdom games) all my life, up to a year or so ago when I finally broke ranks and bought a non-Nintendo system.

        I LIKE online voice chat with friends and family. I LIKE games that are not all bright and colorful all the time. And I want more than a handful every couple years!

        Hopefully Switch will make the long journey back to earn Nintendo respect among gamers. It has certainly taken several big steps that direction. Maybe by the time Metroid Prime comes out, 3rd parties will have joined in mass, and not just a couple, bringing old ports to the table. (Which don’t get me wrong, I love old ports sometimes! Hell, I’m loving 1-2 year old games like they are brand new because I have so much catching up from only having Nintendo systems for decades)

        At the very least, Switch is a break from the Wii Era, and a movement back to where Nintendo should be. I’m just not investing any more in their hardware for a while. I put my time in, long live the original Nintendo fans gone Rogue! :D

  8. I’m officially giving up on the hope that any major third party games will come to the Switch (I guess I’ll be playing Assassin’s Creed Origins on my PS4). All I keep hearing is this same crap over and over. If I wasn’t such a huge Nintendo fan, I’d be feeling like I wasted my money buying the Switch. And I shouldn’t have to feel that way.

  9. I suppose nothing is 100% confirmed, but I’ll admit. This one will hurt a little; especially considering that the first one was a GC exclusive. This must be how people felt when Bayonetta 2 was released exclusively for Wii U.

  10. Eh… Where’s the news? Big hitters not coming to *insert Wii U or Switch here* is something that has been happening for quite a while. It’s crystal clear that nowadays passionate gamers — I’m not talking about fanboyism here — cannot go through an entire generation with only one console.

    I’ve been saying this like a broken record, but I feel like saying it again and again: Nintendo does not money hat; Sony and Microsoft do. Obviously, technical reasons may hinder ports to Switch as it harbors an inferior hardware when compared to real, actual home consoles. So, nothing to regret here.

    What amazes me is some people insisting Nintendo’s E3 was the best one, and that the Switch is the weapon Nintendo has to decimate the other companies, and blah-blah-blah… I really don’t get it.

  13. I’m just pissed MH5/World was announced for the west before MHXX for 3ds and Switch. Capcom just spat in everyone’s face with that. They should have announced MHXX for the west at the same time they announced MH World.
    I swear I think Capcom only use western fans as a way to meet their sales quotas in order to impress everyone at their investors meetings. If MHXX isn’t announced for the west then I’m done with Capcom. I’m glad MH is coming back to ps but I still want MHXX in the west.
    I put 500+ hours into MHgen and to think that I can’t even play Grank quests because Capcom wanted to be assholes towards wester MH Gen owners is just asinine.
