Beyond Good and Evil designer and Rayman creator Michel Ancel has promised fans that the sequel to BG&E will be bigger, more immersive and move complex than the first game. On top of that, he's also commented that a primary inspiration for the game was the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

"It was a mix of a lot of experiences," Ancel told All-Gamers (via Eurogamer). "It was a phantasm to create an adventure game, a universe too. It was the game I wanted to create for a long time."

"There were a lot of inspirations: the Miyazaki universe, my own inspirations, politics and the media; the theme of September 11 - the CNN show with army messages and the fear climate. And it was a mix from other universes."

The first Beyond Good and Evil game told the story of the planet Hillys and an alien invasion, from the eyes of photo-journalist Jade and her uncle Pey'j. The game ended on a cliffhanger, but it wasn't until Ubidays last year that the sequel was confirmed.

"We could have finished the game," said Ancel, "but we want BG&E2 to bring something to the videogame universe." He went on to claim that the sequel will be more complex and immersive. Unfortunately, there's still no release date or confirmed platforms for Beyond Good and Evil 2.
