Ubisoft Will Continue To Work On BG&E2, Prince of Persia
In my mind, this year's E3 was a lot more about what wasn't shown as opposed to what was.
For instance, while we've been hearing about sequels for Beyond Good & Evil and Prince of Persia, no such projects showed up at E3 2014. However, Ubisoft says they haven't forgotten about those successful IPs.
During a recent IGN interview, publisher COO Yves Guillemot said that while gamers still have to wait, those IPs are still very much in existence:
"We are not going to stop those properties. We are going to work on them. The teams are really looking at what we can come [up] with. I think you will really like what you see in the future. It could take some time to make sure we are really delivering what we want."
We've been hearing about BG&E2 for years, and creative director Michel Ancel even revealed new concept art of the main character, Jade, earlier this year. We'd also heard that a new 2D Prince of Persia was in the works, and it was using the UbiArt Framework Engine, on display in Rayman Legends. Sadly, neither showed up at Ubisoft's conference last week.
C'mon, just announce one of them. I'll be happy with that for the time being...I can be extremely patient.
