Fans of Beyond Good and Evil
are a patient bunch. For eight years now, a sequel to the cult classic has been teased at multiple stages with nothing never quite happening. Well, prepare yourself for some more teasing as creator Michel Ancel has released a couple of images hinting at something to do with the series, with Ubisoft France tweeting
to pay close attention to Ancel's Instagram account, where these images have emerged.
Could this be Jade's dad with baby Pey'j, potentially meaning a prequel of some sort? And this looks like it could be either Rufus or Francis, the sharks seen at Bar Akuda
In addition to that, the Instagram posts
are captioned with "Somewhere in system 4 ...
-- Thanks #ubisoft for making this possible !" -- with "System 4" the name of the fictional region in space where Beyond Good and Evil
took place -- and ""Ready for the fight " independence #ubisoft day" alluding to Ubisoft's shareholder meeting today where Vivendi -- who have been attempting a somewhat hostile takeover of Ubisoft for some time now -- may be attempting to get a seat on Ubisoft's board of directors.
So is this finally Beyond Good and Evil 2
? And will it be prequel or a sequel? Will it even be made if Ubisoft are taken over? Find out next time on
