Beyond Good and Evil 2 faces more development problems

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is facing even more development issues, as a new report says developer Ubisoft Montpellier is undergoing a major leadership shakeup.

According to a Kotaku report, Ubisoft Montpellier staff were informed last week that their CEO was no longer with the company. Guillaume Carmona had been absent from office since the beginning of 2023 and the reason for his departure was not disclosed. Carmona had been with Ubisoft for almost two decades.

Sources also told Kotaku that Ubisoft Montpellier is facing a labor investigation by local government authorities due to a large number of developers experiencing burnout and sick leave. A Ubisoft spokesperson told Kotaku that “the Montpellier development team is undergoing wellness assessments via a third party to take preventative measures and assess where additional support may be needed.”

Nearly six years after its initial reveal in 2017, Beyond Good and Evil 2 has yet to enter full production. We last heard about Beyond Good and Evil 2 back in August, when the project brought on a new lead writer. The original tone of the game featured cooperative exploration in an ambitious world. The game is currently in limbo and there is no word on when it will have a release window or a new trailer showing some development progress.
