Michel Ancel, creator of Rayman, has shared the reasons as to why Beyond Good and Evil 2 is a next generation console exclusive.
When Gamereactor asked Ancel if the game would ever see a release on current-gen consoles he replied, “Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible [on current-gen], but it’d be painful. It’s always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not on the optimizations or things like that.
“Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we’re working on them. We’re trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon,” he added.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been in active development for next-gen consoles since last year.
