Beyond Good and Evil 2 job listings appear to build our hopes up once more

A series of job listings for Beyond Good and Evil 2 shows that Ubisoft is still actively working on the game. 

As spotted by Game Rant, Ubisoft currently has a number of roles open at its France-based studios to join the Beyond Good and Evil 2 team. The company’s Bordeaux, Montpellier, and Paris studios are looking for a 3D programmer, vegetation technical artist, level artist, and more to join "the Beyond Good & Evil 2 development team." 

Described as "one of the most innovative productions at Ubisoft" in the technical artist job listing, Beyond Good and Evil 2 was first revealed during the Ubidays 2008 conference - 13 years ago. We got to see another glimpse of it during E3 2018, but have heard almost nothing since. 

There have, however, been hints along the way that have given us hope of the project eventually getting released. First of all, series creator Michel Ancel left the project in September 2020 but promised that the sequel is going “super well.” Following that, we also found out that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still alive and “progressing well” thanks to a Ubisoft earnings call in October 2020. 

More recently, in July 2021, Ubisoft confirmed that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development and these new job listings have further backed this up. However, Ubisoft also said that it is "too early" to confirm when the game will actually come out. Considering the studio is still hiring for a lot of roles needed during the development process, we wouldn’t be surprised if we continue to not hear much for a few years yet.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
