Beyond Good and Evil 2 would be ‘painful’ on current-gen

1 min read


So where was Beyond Good and Evil 2 this year? It was hinted at, and most likely imagined by fevered gamers desperate for a return to the planet of  Hillys –  but failed to show up at E3 last month. And that’s most likely because it’ll be a next-gen game, thanks to the fact that it would be painful to produce on current-gen hardware.

“I think [on current platforms] Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible, but it’d be painful,” Beyond Good and Evil creator Michel Ancel said to Gamereactor.

It’s always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not on the optimizations or things like that.

Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we’re working on them. We’re trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon.

I’m still pretty confident that Beyond Good and Evil will return…in the next generation at least. It’s new technology in the early stages, and naturally, publishers and developers want to have a firm grip on it before they commit to really big budget titles.
