Ubisoft one is going on complex stage where it does not seem to find important titles from which to obtain economic performance. Now that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has given what it had to offer and Far Cry 6 seems to have not received the expected interest in terms of its post-launch content, the Gauls only have Skull & Bones and Mario + Rabbids Sparks to offer this year of Hope. However, it must be taken into account that the Gauls still have several aces up their sleeves as a missing Beyond Good and Evil 2 which seems to be still an active project for Ubisoft and has signed a new head writer.
Since that E3 of 2017, the news about the sequel to the classic signed by the Gauls has been arriving dropper and many assumed that at some point and behind the scenes, Ubisoft had decided to end to this IP. Now, the game’s first sEsports Extrasof life in a long time comes thanks to Sarah Arellanowho has signed projects like the imminent Saints Row or World of Warcraft.
This has been announced by the writer in Twitter concert sympathetic touch sharing a video while updating his interesting biography on the social network. Arellano thus joins a project that seemed to be going at half gas within the Ubisoft umbrella as the main writer of the game that, at the earliest, would see the light of day sometime in 2024.
However, what is good news leaves a certain bad taste in the mouth when we realize the position that Arellano will hold at Ubisoft. Until today, gabrielle shrager —who has written for Ubisoft Rabbids Go Home and Valiant Hearts: The Great War— appeared as the project’s lead writer, a position that appears to have been ceded to Arellano, which would mean that the development of Beyond Good and Evil 2 would have stopped long enough to have had to redirect his story.
Be that as it may, only Ubisoft knows what happens to the development of a cult classic of the adventure genre. Keep in mind that we are talking about a project that did not generate rejection by the players. On the contrary, the community opened up to this late sequel and to this day many are still asking what happened to that game.
