Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still in development, but won't be appearing on this generation of consoles. Speaking to at E3, Michel Ancel, creator of Rayman and Beyond Good Evil, has elaborated as to why.

"We can't say it's really only next-gen." he said, "We need to reconsider the target platform because I have a very specific idea of that game. On high-end PCs we can already play the game, but it's very hard to say 'we'll cut that, that and that to make it fit into another platform'".

"On top of that you have the interface which is another question. Yes, we need to take the time to find the right target for this game."

Ancel clearly has a defined view of what 'next-gen' is, and isn't committing the game to the successors of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. He mentions interface as a leading factor in development. It's therefore not unreasonable to suggest that Beyond Good and Evil 2 would be a good fit for Nintendo's new machine.

"I think Wii U is next-gen in terms of interface," he told, but doesn't believe the console itself is next-gen.

It's a damned shame that development stalled on BG&E2 (if the gameplay fotage that leaked was truly of the prototype build for the title), as it is important that crazy, unusual games have a place within the gaming hobby.

I did feel a little disappointed at the lack of mention at the Ubisoft presentation. Still, I guess it's good to know that its not been cancelled altogether.
