As specified following the reveal trailer dating back to 2018, Ubisoft will launch a Beta version of Beyond Good & Evil 2 that players will access before the final publication of the ambitious Sci-Fi title.
As pointed out by “glebanych” on ResetEra, it seems that Ubisoft has changed some of its programs related to the Beta of the game. By accessing the private section of his account, the user has noticed that the Beta of Beyond Good & Evil 2 is currently planned exclusively for PC and next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
Originally, the pre-order made by the player referred to the Xbox One version.
Therefore, Ubisoft has decided to move the development of the game entirely to next-generation computers and platforms. The decision would not be too surprising, considering that the development of Beyond Good & Evil 2 seems far from complete and that it will take some time for the long-awaited sequel to hit the shelves finally. However, it is a speculation that does not find any official confirmation from Ubisoft, so we invite you to wait for any clarifications from the French publisher.
Ubisoft confirmed that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is proceeding in the best way during its latest meeting with shareholders. The company said it was not yet ready to show new material from the title devised by Michel Ancel (now no longer head of the project) but promised that new material would be shown by 2021.
