Ubisoft CEO: having Michel Ancel “working on Legends is slowing the process on Beyond Good and Evil 2”


In a similar predicament to being told your creme brulet is going to be late because your roast dinner is taking a while to cook, Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot has said that because Michel Ancel is focused on developing Rayman Legends, the sequel to the gorgeously brilliant platfomer Rayman Origins, progress on Beyond Good and Evil 2 has slowed way down.

More, as ever, after the break.

Guillemot was speaking to Polygon about the problem, saying””What’s very important is that Michel Ancel is kind of doing too many things at the same time. He was working onRayman Originslast year, and he’s working a lot onRayman Legendsthis year. So, you know, when he does that, he kind of puts too much of his time on the other projects that he has.

“So the fact is, that working onLegendsis slowing the process onBeyond Good and Evil 2.

“But there are so many things that have to be done that, you know, this one is going to come in line at one point, but at the moment Michele is really onRaymanLegends.”


Though, and this may be out there because it would cause a delay for both games in the short term, why not get Ancel to develop cloning technology and then work on both series? It’s the only logical thing, surely?
