Beyond Good and also Evil 2, the ever-elusive follow up that was initially introduced back in 2008, has a brand-new lead author.

The follow up was initially validated 14 years earlier, however as very early as February of this year it was still in pre-production after at the very least 5 years in advancement, according to Bloomberg (opens up in brand-new tab) Ubisoft itself has assured that the game is still in the works, and also currently we’re seeing a significant advancement with previous Blizzard narrative developer Sarah Arellano validated as Beyond Good and also Evil 2’s brand-new lead author.

Arellano formerly worked with World of Warcraft and also the upcoming Saints Row reboot. Now she’ll be instrumental for finding out exactly how to proceed the tale of the 2003 initial Beyond Good and also Evil, in which an investigatory reporter called Jade coordinate with a resistance motion to hinder the story of a scary unusual conspiracy theory. The gamer personality changes from Jade, the photographer, to her different allies throughout the game, and also you’re charged with resolving problems, battling baddies, and also accumulating proof.

Since it’s been as long considering that we’ve last learnt through Ubisoft regarding the follow up, I can not with confidence claim what the follow up will certainly have to do with, or whether it’ll star Jade as the lead character once more. Back at E3 2018, Ubisoft stated Jade would not be the major personality, however considering that the game’s evidently still in pre-production and also with a brand-new lead author affixed, that can’ve quickly transformed in between after that and also currently.
