This may come as no surprise to people out there, but Gamersyde's Colin Solal Cardo recently tweeted that Ubisoft had told him at GamesCom that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is "on hold for now."
I say it may come as no surprise, because two of the year's biggest trade shows have come and gone, and we've not heard so much as a whisper regarding the title.
Ubisoft responded as expected this afternoon, "we don't comment on rumour or speculation."
Cardo followed up the bombshell by stating that he wasn't sure if it was a permanent cancellation, or just a pause in the development schedule. He stated, "no idea if it's def or temporary but it sucks."
It does suck indeed, especially after seeing the fantastic looking leaked footage that cropped up a month before E3. We're just praying that it's either only temporary, or some elaborate marketing ploy - yeah, we know, we desperately clutch at straws when we hear bad news like this.
