Top game designer Michel Ancel has revealed that the sequel to Beyond Good & Evil will not be released on current-gen consoles. Instead, his Ubisoft Montpellier team is focusing on the upcoming Rayman Origins.

The news emerged last night from an exclusive Ubisoft dinner in LA, attended by Eurogamer's sister site GamesIndustry.biz.

"It is still alive and we are very far [into] development so we can't go back now," Ancel said. "We are targeting the next generation of consoles."

Beyond Good & Evil 2 was unveiled at the publisher's Ubidays event in 2008. An HD remake of the critically acclaimed but underperforming original, which launched on PS2, GameCube and Xbox, was released earlier this year.
