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.
