There has been much speculation for a few years on a new Beyond Good and Evil game but the IP holders Ubisoft have stayed quiet about the possible project. Today, Ubisoft confirmed that Michel Ancel is currently working with the Ubisoft Montpellier Studio on a new Beyond Good and Evil game.
Though it was never directly shut down by those barking at Ubisoft for confirmation as to whether we'd ever see another entry into the Beyond Good and Evil world, a stray Instagram shot by creator Michel Ancel has reignited hope of the dream becoming a reality.
The image - seen here - has since been tweeted out by one of Ubisoft's many regional Twitter accounts seemingly confirming their involvement in the concept art despite the fact the original post even has Michel directly thanking them for 'making this possible'.
