Rayman creator Michel Ancel recently shed light on his much anticipated sequel to Beyond Good & Evil, which Ubisoft teased several years ago at E3 2008.
At this point it's fairly obvious that the folow-up will be coming to next-generation gaming hardware, so while fans have had a lot of waiting to do, the benefits that come along with new technology will undoubtedly result in a far better product.
Speaking to IGN, Ancel explained why:
I think we were doing something too big for this period. Honestly, it was too challenging to put that on [current] consoles. I don’t say the consoles were not good enough, I don’t say the team was not good enough, but you have to scale what you want to do and the console itself.He went on to detail how player freedom will be a huge focus in the sequel, adding:
In this kind of game, while you’re investigating, you don’t want to investigate in a story that has been written by the developers. My feeling is that you want to investigate with your own way of investigating. I like the freedom of choosing your vehicles, flying away with the spaceship and all those things.I don't know about you, but the more I hear about this game, the more excited I get. Are you eagerly anticipating Jade's next adventure? Are you still afraid it will never see the light of day? Let us know in the comments below.
