Last week we reported on a rumor that Beyond Good & Evil 2's lead designer, Michel Ancel, left Ubisoft for a new studio, thus suspending development of the crazy anticipated sequel. Balderdash, says a representative from Ubisoft, who told Eurogamer that Ancel is still with Ubi, and that BG&E2's development is unchanged.
Still, the rumor only seemed plausible because we've heard nary a chirp about BG&E2 since the teaser trailer two years ago, excepting one update that the game is "still in development." Why Ubisoft is maintaining radio silence is unclear. It doesn't make us feel better that instead of assuring us that development is going great, Ubisoft told Eurogamer, "There are no changes on the horizon." So... still not going to show us anything? Well bosh. We'll just have to assume that Ubisoft Montpellier is simply waiting for the right time to unveil the game... like at E3 this month? Maybe? Please?
