What a sad joke Beyond Good & Evil 2 is at this point. The game was first announced in 2008, which was 14 (!) years ago. And still, the game is somehow still in "early development", as was revealed by industry insider Tom Henderson.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is Still Years Away

Henderson revealed this on his website Insider Gaming, citing internal sources from developer Ubisoft. The game has been last shown in 2018. However, it seems to have been rebooted since then, according to Henderson, who has seen the game. Its current state, which Henderson has seen in images and videos provided to him, doesn't have "the same level of detail" as the last-seen footage.

According to the report, the "majority of the images and footage provided show bare planets with blocked structures for buildings. Any structures that had some form of detail were very low quality", with the overall graphics being like "the game was played on an ultra-low setting". Ouch.

This is honestly pretty shocking. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is already the game with the longest development ever, and it looks like it will still take a few years until it will finally come out. At least Ubisoft is still working on it and hasn't canceled it out right...
