Beyond Good & Evil 2 Sighted
So our friendly neighborhood NEOGaffers have been so kind as translate an interview for us that gives some more info on the prospects of a sequel for one of the biggest cult hits of last generation. The important points are summarized below in their own words. There is also a leaked image making the rounds that appears to be the first in-engine image of the game available. It’s also below for your perusal.

Can you tell us on which platforms BG&E 2 will be released?

We won’t make promises that we can’t keep. We are in an active creation stage and at this moment we are only focusing on the game and making it the best game that we can. That decision would just distracts us from that objective. I can say that it’s a very ambitious game and we need some tech to achieve that ambition.

This last teaser video is very reminiscent of Mirror’s Edge. Is it an influence for your game?

No, not at all. We had this concept even before Mirror’s Edge launched. And we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror’s Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective. We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirro’s Edge but the game itself is very different. We focus on the game.

We create it first, and then we’ll see what can run it. We don’t say 2013 because we don’t know when it will come. We’re working to create a great game and it needs more tech.
