Ubisoft Montpellier has officially announced tat their upcoming video game, Beyond Good and Evil 2, won’t be at E3 2019 in any way shape or form. This was confirmed by the developer on their Space Monkey Report, which is meant for reporting updates on the game, where they said that instead of showing the game at the annual convention, they would instead be revealing some more information in a livestream on Wednesday, June 5 at 6pm CEST (Paris Time).
According the developer, they will be focusing on “core development milestones” and states this as the main reasoning for not attending E3. As for the upcoming livestream, don’t expect any major updates as the past ones haven’t had any substantial information, especially in regards to an actual release date. Speaking of which, now that Death Stranding has an actual launch date, this makes Beyond Good and Evil 2 one of the few games to not have any major updates or concrete dates despite being in development for several years.
However, it’s not all that bad as the company has committed themselves to finishing the title at some point. Whenever that point is though, remains the biggest mystery right now. On top of that, it wouldn’t be such a stretch to see the game launch for next-generation systems at this point, as the PlayStation 5 is rumored to have a tentative release for either 2020 or 2021. Either way, we won’t see Beyond Good and Evil 2 at E3 this year. If you’re interested in the livestream though, you can check out their official Twitch and Youtube pages here when they go live on June 5.
