Fans of Beyond Good & Evil have been waiting a very long time for a sequel.

The game, which came out in 2003, was envisioned as part of a trilogy but as the years have gone by, fans have let their expectations wane. A 2011 HD re-release seemed to be it for a while, until some screenshots from Beyond Good & Evil 2 began to surface in May. Creator Michel Ancel confirmed, also back in May, that the game was in development, but said the game would not be likely to surface before the next generation of consoles.

In an interview with Polygon, Ubisoft head Yves Guillemot further dampened fans' spirits, explaining that Ancel's work on Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends has put BG & E 2 even further on the back burner.


"It's really a game that we've been working, we have worked on, and is a game that we want to do," Guillemot reassured Polygon, but work on Rayman Legends comes first.

For fans who loved Jade's original journeys through Hillys, a few more years on the back burner are just another part of the wait that's taken the better part of a decade.

BG&E is still one of the greatest games of all-time IMHO, not just because it was so dramatically overlooked at the time of its release.

How many games that are almost 10 years old still hold up perfectly well today?

You can fire up BG&E right now on Steam, and almost nothing about it feels dated. It's absolutely mindblowing.
