Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel has revealed today a bad news for Beyond Good&Evil fans. He stated that only next-gen consoles could handle his ideas for the second game in the series and the studio plans to release it only on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 if they will eventually produce the game.
“I think we were doing something too big for this period,” Ancel said. “Honestly, it was too challenging to put that on [current] consoles.
“I don’t say the consoles were not good enough, I don’t say the team was not good enough, but you have to scale what you want to do and the console itself.
“I think now with those new consoles arriving, yes, we want to try again making that game. I would say it’s surprising, as we want it to be. Not just a sequel, but something that really makes all the ideas that we had for the first one possible now with these consoles.”
Keep in mind that Ubisoft has not yet announced if the game will be or not produced now or anytime soon.
