Beyond Good & Evil 2 "is possible, but would be painful"
Creator Michel Ancel talks why sequel won't be this gen, confirms he's already working on next-gen consoles.
During last week's Gamelab, Michel Ancel shared his new vision for game development based on emotions, not gameplay. Just before his talk, Gamereactor Spain sat down to talk to him - and asked him the long-standing question about Beyond Good & Evil 2 - and whether it was impossible to match his vision with current-gen technology.
"I think [on current platforms] Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible, but it'd be painful. It's always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not on the optimizations or things like that.
"Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we're working on them. We're trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon".
