After years of waiting, fans were elated to finally see Beyond Good & Evil 2 announced along with a brilliant cinematic trailer. Emotions ran high as creator Michel Ancel was in tears on stage. Fast forward four years and things look very different.

Michel Ancel suddenly left Ubisoft amid claims of creating a toxic working environment. Now we haven't really heard from the game since E3 2018.


UPDATE - Beyond Good & Evil 2 Missing From E3 2021

Unfortunately, Beyond Good & Evil 2 was completely missing from the Ubisoft Forward event at E3 2021. The show focused heavily on a set of titles including Rainbow Six: Extraction, Riders Republic and Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora.

This throws further uncertainty into the games status and future.


Beyond Good & Evil 2 Release Date

We do not currently have a release date for Beyond Good & Evil 2. This is one thing that fans have found hard to deal with as they have no date to hold Ubisoft to. A game without any release date or window is hard to get behind.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Trailer

We have had a few Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailers since its reveal. The main reveal trailer from E3 2017, however, is still considered one of the best made for the game.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Gameplay

We have been treated to a guided gameplay demo for Beyond Good & Evil 2 from E3 2018. This demo was then made available to the public in late 2018.

We are shown various aspects of the gameplay from piloting vehicles to combat. It's mentioned that the game can be played in co-op and your friends could seamlessly drop in and out of your games if you wish.


Beyond this we also get a look at some of the vehicle customisation options. It's mentioned that these may not just be cosmetic but also stat upgrades to help with races and fighting.

Finally, we also get a look at your spyglass. This tool allows you to survey areas to learn more about them. You can also use it to detect enemies and the gear they are carrying. It also works as a recruiting tool as you can scan NPCs to determine whether or not you want to try and add them to your team or not.
