According to a report from Exputer’s Tom Henderson, external playtesting recently started for Beyond Good and Evil 2 and it reportedly feels “years away” and currently “lacks direction.” One source also noted that they had “no idea what I was doing when playing.” Additionally, as external playtests have begun, it’s being speculated that the game may be getting a new reveal soon, but that has yet to be confirmed. Beyond Good and Evil 2 was first announced at E3 2017. A release date or platform for the game has yet to be revealed.
The game’s details via Ubisoft can be seen below:
The world—or rather worlds—of Beyond Good & Evil are back on the horizon with the unveiling of Beyond Good and Evil 2, a prequel and spiritual successor to the beloved 2003 classic. Beyond Good and Evil 2 invites players to explore System 3, a vast solar system and a hub of interstellar colonization and commerce in the 24th century—and fans have a chance to help shape it by taking a role in the development process.
System 3, as it turns out, is a place where limited resources are viciously warred over by various private enterprises. The struggle for survival amid a rich milieu of evolved species and diverse cultures from Old Earth creates an ideal environment for space piracy, as a new generation of captains rise up to carve out a piece of the galaxy for themselves.
As you rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain, you’ll traverse System 3 at light speed to explore freely on your own or with friends. Presenting its solar system as a massive, seamless online environment, Beyond Good and Evil 2 gives players the chance to dive into the foundations of the franchise’s universe while traveling between diverse planets and moons in search of adventure.
