Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel has founded a new independent studio called Wild Sheep.

However, he will continue to lead development on certain projects at Ubisoft Montpellier in addition to working at his new studio, including work on an "extremely ambitious new title".

"Ubisoft Montpellier is a hotbed for artistic game development, including great games like Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil, and Valiant Hearts," Ubisoft Montpellier managing director Xavier Poix told Game Informer.

"We are fortunate to have some of the industry's finest talents, including Michel Ancel, working with us at our studio. In addition to spending some of his time on this new venture, Michel is leading the creative development of select projects at Ubisoft Montpellier, including an extremely ambitious new title that is very close to his and the team's heart."

That game - probably, maybe, hopefully - could be Beyond Good & Evil 2, a title officially announced way back at E3 2008.
