Beyond Good & Evil 2 beta "end of next year"

Jade empire.

A beta version of Beyond Good & Evil 2 is due for release towards the end of 2019, creator Michel Ancel has said.

Ubisoft Montpellier's ambitious, currently-half-built open world multiplayer space opera thing got another showing at E3 this year - where we were treated to around 30 minutes of gameplay behind closed doors.

We'll have more on what we saw shortly, but as impressive as BG&E2's tech currently is - and as lovely as that CGI trailer reintroducing BG&E1's Pey'J and Jade was - it was clear the game still had a long way to go.

Still, that hasn't stopped Ancel telling fans: "We aim for a playable beta for the end of next year," via a post on his Instagram (which you should really subscribe to for lots of lovely BG&E2 concept art).

What the beta will contain, or when exactly it will arrive? We may have to wait until E3 to find out.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
