Ubisoft has dismissed suggestions that Michel Ancel has left the company, confirming that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development.
Word of the Rayman creator's supposed departure appeared on the internet last week. It was said that Ancel had left to set up his own studio, and that the BG&E2 project had been cancelled as a result.
But a Ubisoft representative told Eurogamer, "There are no changes on the horizon."
When asked if that means Ancel is still at Ubi and that BG&E2 is still in development, the representative replied, "Yes."
