Beyond Good & Evil 2: Zavvi lists March 2014 release date

Sequel already confirmed to be in development for next gen platforms

Online retailer Zavvi is listing a Beyond Good & Evil 2 release date of March 22, 2014.


While it may only be a placeholder, Rayman creator and Beyond Good & Evil designer Michel Ancel said last year that the game is in "active" development for next generation consoles.

Unfortunately the sequel's development has been held up by Ubisoft Montpellier's work on Rayman Legends, according to the publisher's CEO, Yves Guillemot. Ubisoft has confirmed a Rayman Legends release date of March 1 in the UK.

Zavvi's Beyond Good & Evil 2 blurb reads: "Designed by Michel Ancel and his acclaimed design team at Ubisoft, this is a sequel to the beloved adventure game, Beyond Good & Evil.

"The game has not yet, however, been officially announced under the title 'Beyond Good & Evil 2' it is instead referred to simply as 'Next Michel Ancel Project' after its creator, it might possibly have a unique title to reboot the franchise."
