The French gaming site Jeux Expo says Ubisoft’s recently knighted Michel Ancel has begun work on a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil. The original title featured a cliffhanger ending that had fans begging for a second game.
It was believed that plans for this sequel were cancelled because of poor sales of the first Beyond Good & Evil, despite critical acclaim. Jeux Expo’s report claims that the sequel is being developed for all next-gen consoles and will be released in 2007. The game will take place shortly after the events in the original, and will allow players to travel to different planets.
