Beyond Good & Evil is one of the most beloved action-adventure games of the PlayStation 2 generation, and rightly so. Ever since gamers reached its surprising conclusion some ten years ago, outcries for a sequel have echoed across the internet far and wide.
Now that creator Michel Ancel is done with Rayman Legends and Origins, there's reason to hope we'll be seeing a proper sequel to Jade's story. In fact, Ancel recently spoke to Edge about Beyond Good & Evil 2, saying that he aims to "create moments that will stay with people forever."
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
I think there are some very memorable moments in games, and in the one I’m working on we try to make moments memorable and [imbue them] with strong consequences. It’s not only about a single moment, but the whole journey that the player is led through in the world.
In Beyond Good & Evil, we tried to make the player travel and discover different things, and I think it’s something that you really need… It’s like in a good story, or a good book, or a good movie: the whole book is supposed to bring you to this special moment. It’s meant to make you feel something very strong, even if it’s short. It’s something that we haven’t achieved yet [in the game industry]. I have the idea to build this kind of thing, but honestly, it’s something that we need to work on.
Here's to hoping we finally get a bit more information on the long-awaited sequel at E3. Please, Ubisoft, make my dreams come true.
