On World UFO Day, Ubisoft teased fans on Twitter about the long-awaited game, Beyond Good and Evil 2, which was first announced at E3 2017.
On World UFO Day, Ubisoft took to Twitter to poke fun at fans about the long-awaited game, Beyond good and evil 2. First announced at E3 in 2017, fans have been eagerly awaiting its release since it was confirmed that it was actually in development. World UFO Day is meant to be a day for awareness of unidentified flying objects and for people to gather and look at the skies. Since the series is sci-fi and takes place on different planets / moons, World UFO Day was a good opportunity to remind fans that the game still exists.
First Beyond Good and Evil was released in 2003 and it’s no exaggeration to say that fans have wanted a sequel ever since. Originally released for the PS2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC, this action-adventure game puts players in the role of Jade, an investigative reporter, who is working to uncover a horrible government conspiracy and save her planet and its citizens. The latest trailer for the sequel was released in 2018, and fans got to see iconic characters Pey’j and Jade, as well as new faces. The end of the first game created a sequel, but Ubisoft said that Beyond good and evil 2 It is not a continuation of the first game, which leaves fans with many questions, such as how and why Jade, the protagonist of the first game, is such a threatening figure in the next title. Whichever path Ubisoft decides on, fans will be excited to return to that universe.

In the tweet, Ubisoft Belgium I am enclosing a picture of a steampunk spaceship breaking through the clouds and hovering over the city of Ghent. The spaceship looks a lot like the one in the cinematic trailer. The tweet included two hashtags: #WorldUFODay and # BGE2. The second, presumably, refers to Beyond good and evil 2. Additionally, the tweet poses a question to followers with an emoji: “Can not be?” and a monkey face emoji with his hands over his ears. This is a possible reference to the Space Monkey show that plays an essential role in the new image-based game that has been released. The image is not a photo from the game, but rather reminiscent of concept watercolor art superimposed on a Ghent cityscape.
The tweet came from the Twitter account of Ubisoft Belgium, where the city of Ghent is located, but Ubisoft Montpellier is listed as the developer behind. Beyond good and evil 2. This could mean that the development of the title is now shared between the two studios. It would not be the first or the most recent instance of collaboration between Ubisoft developer studios. It is comforting to see that the game is not stopped and presumably progressing in its development.
It may be a bit dramatic to say that the news from Beyond good and evil 2 it’s as rare as UFO sightings, but it may not be that far off. At least the fans know for sure that the game is real. It’s still on the Ubisoft website, there have been cinematic and pre-alpha game trailers, Ubisoft has given regular updates on the release and knows fans are watching. Given the severe restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 lockdown, it is understandable that the game did not receive any updates in 2020. Hopefully, now that things are calming down and developers are getting workers to return to work regularly (in home or in person), players can expect a substantial Beyond good and evil 2 development update, and not just a cryptic joke.
