Beyond Good & Evil 2, I Am Alive: "Always In Production"
Sometimes, a company executive is forthcoming enough where multiple headlines can be taken from one interview.
We just told you about Ubisoft's focus on their new Ghost Recon installment, info courtesy of a GameKult interview with Ubisoft France CEO Geoffroy Sardin. But there's another juicy tidbit buried in that translated text and it should temporarily satisfy fans of Beyond Good & Evil. Way back in 2008, we saw a teaser trailer that confirmed the existence of BG&E2, a long-awaited sequel to one of the PS2's most acclaimed titles. But a year later, we hear the project is on indefinite hold and ever since then, we've heard nothing from Ubisoft. But in that interview, Sardin was asked about both I Am Alive and Beyond Good & Evil 2 and he replied that "both are always in production." If that's the case, shouldn't we see new details and/or media for these games some time soon...? I Am Alive is another project that popped up quite some time ago, than disappeared off the radar. We're awfully interested in learning more but at this point, it's a frustrating "wait-and-see" situation.
Beyond Good & Evil certainly deserves a sequel, as do other PS2 classics that have withstood the test of time. Personally, I kinda want a remake of The Mark of Kri...
