It appears that gamers won’t be able to get their hands on Beyond Good & Evil 2 anytime soon. According to its creator, Michel Ancel, the development team aims to release a playable beta version at the end of 2019.
Ubisoft also showcased Beyond Good & Evil 2 behind closed doors at E3 2018. The Beyond Good and Evil 2 team opened up the private demo of the game to a few select members of the Space Monkey Program at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, California, giving a select few the unique opportunity to see first-hand the ongoing development of Beyond Good and Evil 2 and to meet the team in person.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the spiritual successor to the cult classic, and a prequel that will transport players into a profoundly multicultural world. The game aims to capture the spirit of the original with “grandiose decors and intense dramas that play out across a vast universe.“
In Beyond Good and Evil 2, players will fight alongside other characters in a new solar system, as they struggle for freedom and the right to determine their own fate among the stars. Players will be able to game either by themselves or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground.
