Beyond Good & Evil 2 "will be perfect"

Sequel still firmly in development, important that it's done right

Ubisoft has once again moved to put to rest any fears that Beyond Good & Evil 2 may not be on its way. It's in development, has been since it was announced, and "will be perfect", according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

"We were, as we are, working on the game," he confirmed to Kotaku, as the firm has been forced to reaffirm recently. "What is very import with this next product is that it will be perfect." Apparently, the "intention is to come [out] with something really exciting. But everybody needs a little bit of patience," added Guillemot.

The 2003 original is highly revered by its fans, but was at the time a commercial flop. This poses a risk to Ubi with the sequel, but this time around will be different, assures Guillemot.

"I would say the game was very well appreciated by the people who played it," he said. "But we didn't have enough people when it was launched. After its time it become a very recognized product."

He also said the first game pushed the boundaries of what people expected from games at the time, but the buzz surrounding the second game will pull more people in this time.

No mention of a release window, though.
