Beyond Good and Evil 2 was originally announced in 2017 and will be a prequel to the original released in 2003. There has been little announced about the game since its reveal trailer, and it is unlikely that the unannounced project will see any light until Beyond Good and Evil 2 is closer to release.

Veteran designer Michel Ancel was working on Beyond Good and Evil 2 when he decided to step away from the company to focus on a career in wildlife. He said that his departure would not affect the development of Beyond Good and Evil 2.

In a statement on Instagram, Ancel said, “Today is very special for me. After more than 30 years, I’ve decided to stop working on video games and fully focus on my second passion: wildlife.”

He added, “Many of you might want to know what will happen to Wild and BGE2. No worries, since many months now the teams are autonomous and the projects are going super well. Beautiful things to be seen soon.”

It was later reported (via Kotaku) that Ancel’s departure was actually because of his own toxic leadership, which he called “fake news”.

Ubisoft recently announced that Rainbow Six Extraction would not include any new operators, instead featuring those already found in Siege. They said that Siege’s operators already covered everything and that taking them into a new type of game would be more interesting.
