It's the new "The Last Guardian".

Game’s been in development for so long they had to replace the developers who reached retirement or croaked.

Ancel is long gone, GaaS is far what people wanted out of a sequel, just don't care anymore.

The game itself is older than most people in this sub. At this point they'd be better off completely remastering it from the ground up as a reintroduction to the game.

The only real hype for this release comes from the media who seem to really want it. Most people simply never played or don't give two shits about this game anymore.

It's one of the best games ever made in my book. Which is why some people still cling to hope in regards to a sequel.

Seemed like Ancel had way to ambitious plans for this game, development felt really slow and costly. Same with that game “Wild” that will probably never be released.Both games looked a lot similar in that way from gameplay we seen. Like they just worked on the early basics of the game and never got further.

Maybe he’s on to a new project that won’t see the light of day.

Jeff Grubb reported Wild is completely dead.

Well that's a waste of ressources.

Ancel retired from the games industry entirely a few years ago.

This game is as mythical as Rockstar's Agent

At least we got gameplay out of this. Agent we saw jack shit.

Funnily enough I think Ubisoft are banking on this being their "GTA." I suspect the reason Elder Scrolls 6 and GTA 6 are still in development after all these years is that the tech required to make huge immersive worlds is massive. Look at Cyberpunk to see an example of how difficult it is to pull off.

CDPR made a few janky third person games and then jumped into trying to make a first person open world game. Their not on the level of Ubisoft, who was ready at launch with three open world PS5 games.

They’re probably dealing with scope creep, which is why they tried to pair up with Joseph Gordon Leavitt to get free artwork from his creatives network.

I lost interest when they said it would be online-only.

But seeing it again would bring me back. The scope and ambition was something I hadn't seen before.

Remember this brilliant plan?:

Just seems like a crazy fever dream now.

ID: hfj8taz

Ye as soon as I heard of this weird ass hitrecord partnership, I immediately knew they gonna fuck this game up big time.

Ubisoft just loves doing weird ass shit with celebrities, just to promote the game.

ID: hfj98qo

To promote a game that doesn't exist yet. They sure jumped the gun on that one.

It’ll come out when I’m 50

The original Beyond Good and Evil players just want more adventures of Jade and Pey'j. It feels like that was a different lifetime ago!

ID: hfitopt

Yep. Nobody wants yet another Games as Service garbage.

Duke Nukem esque

14 : Anonymous2021/10/05 22:25 ID: hfj9dzu

So heartbroken. Been wanting a sequel to the original for so long now, but this has been in development hell. I'd rather them just scrap it if it's going to turn out like shit.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/05 21:42 ID: hfj3rvr

Just scrap it and remake the original.

Remember this video from WAY back in 2008?

(NOTE: this is a repost of that original video that someone slapped a BG&E2 title on)

Prediction - This game won't be good.

18 : Anonymous2021/10/05 22:06 ID: hfj6wsg

This game is going to skip the current-gen ain't it??

19 : Anonymous2021/10/05 23:17 ID: hfjg06v

I wonder what will be out first? This game, Star Citizen, or Skull and Bones

20 : Anonymous2021/10/05 21:16 ID: hfj07em

I mean this as nicely as I possibly can:

Is there any way the hype of this game can live up to what the developers can actually put out? The original came out nearly 20 years ago. Ubisoft clearly doesn't care about the game or they would have worked on it sooner. Now that they are working on it I'm afraid of the modern micro-transaction hell Ubisoft is now fond of; I just don't see how this could be a good game.

I will be so happy to be proven wrong.
