Beyond Good and Evil 2 for next-gen consoles

Beyond Good and Evil 2 for next-gen consoles

Ubisoft revealed at E3 2011 that Beyond Good and Evil 2 won’t be released for current consoles.

GI.biz is reporting that Beyond Good and Evil 2 ‘will not be released on current-generation consoles’ as has been widely reported.

A release date for the game has not been announced.

The reason for the console no-show is, according to Ubisoft designer Michel Ancel, that ‘we are very far [into] development so we can’t go back now.'

'We are targeting the next generation of consoles,’ said Ancel.

The original Beyond Good and Evil suffered weak sales and critical acclaim when it was first released in 2003. It was re-released as Beyond Good and Evil HD earlier this year.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced in May 2008 and still doesn’t have a release date three years later.

It'd best appear for PC, and not three years after the game is released for the consoles, too. (Thank you for that, Fable 3)

Targeting next gen consoles - my arse - announced in 2008 and no signs other than a trailer.

A blatent excuse to allow years for the development and delays then... duke nukem forever where we go.. and if you cant release it for consoles have to agree that it should be released for PC..

Well, if it's released as a multiconsole launch title, it actually might be a commercial success.

the original was like something out of a little kids dream xir.. a jamaican weapons dealer.. a pig sidekick who invented things in his basement (maybe a possible spoiler)

Nope, only on XBOX 360 currently with a PS3 release date. Lame sauce.

I've heard June 8, 2011 so it should be out. But wikipedia may be lying to me. I don't have a PS3 (yet) so I couldn't tell you anything else except what the internets tells me.
