As specified following the reveal trailer dating back to 2018, Ubisoft will launch a Beta version of Beyond Good & Evil 2 that players will be able to access before the final publication of the ambitious Sci-Fi title.
As pointed out by “glebanych” on ResetEra, it seems that Ubisoft has however changed some of its programs related to the Beta of the game. By accessing the private section of his account, the user noticed that the Beyond Good & Evil 2 Beta is currently planned exclusively for PC and next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles. Originally, the pre-order made by the player referred to the Xbox One version.
It is therefore possible that Ubisoft has decided to move the development of the game entirely to next-generation computers and platforms. The decision wouldn’t be too much of a surprise, 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 finally hit the shelves. 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.
During its latest meeting with shareholders, Ubisoft confirmed that the development of Beyond Good & Evil 2 is proceeding in the best way. 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.
