In a recent interview, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot once again reported on the “Beyond Good & Evil 2”, announced just a few months ago, emphasizing that the publisher sees little risk in the game.
In the course of the E3 2017, Ubisoft and Ubisoft Montpellier had officially announced the sci-fi adventure “Beyond Good & Evil 2” and already presented a first trailer. In a recent interview, Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, once again talked about the game and stressed that it did not assume that the development had taken a risk.
Michel Ancel can give free rein to his creativity
“I do not think there is a risk there,” Guillemot said. “Well, there’s always a risk when we create games, but I do not think there’s too much risk, as Michel Ancel has already mastered so many projects.” The first Beyond Good & & Evil was very good, Michel did, What we wanted to do, and what we thought was best for the players, but there was one thing we had not looked at: how many players were actually interested in female characters, a science fiction world, and so on. ”
According to Guillemot, many men played video games at the time and they wanted to have a certain kind of games. The women who had seen “Beyond Good & Evil” would have loved it, which in turn surprised the company.
“And many people wanted something else and they loved it, which was a big surprise, as the market analysis would normally have been said not to do it, it had not sold so many units since it was not the majority, But the minority loved it so much that it had created something else, “it says. “Now that we have made more games, Michel will continue to take risks, as he has been able to see, but he has more information available, and automatically reacts much more to the majority of the players, and the market has evolved When he was at that time. ”
The first “Beyond Good & Evil” was released in 2003 and, according to Guillemot, helped the company get “King Kong” on board as well as change the image of the company, where numerous talents found their way to Ubisoft. “It is not a matter of short-term profitability, you have to look at what a creation in the general contributes to the company,” Guillemot concluded.
“Beyond Good & Evil 2” has so far received neither an appearance date nor a statement on the platforms.
