Ubisoft has declined to comment on reports that Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been put on hold.

Claiming it has is Gamersydewriter Colin Solal Cardo, who Twittered (via 1UP) that he had "confirmation" the title was "on hold for now".

"No idea if it's [definite] or temporary but it sucks," he added, after apparently hearing the news at gamescom last week.

Bolstering those claims are comments by Ubisoft bigwig Laurent Detoc. He told Gamezine last July that, "Whether or not [Beyond Good and Evil 2] comes out remains to be seen anyway.

"Well, I didn't say there's definitely going to be another game. I said something had leaked, which means we've been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there's going to be another game or not, that's something for the future," Detoc added.

Ubisoft announced Beyond Good & Evil 2 at UbiDays last May, showing a pretty trailer with the pig-man in it. Creator Michel Ancel later validated the project as a direct sequel to BG&E1.

"Players who like the first should like the second," Ancel said.

But little has been said since, and with each high-profile event the sequel misses, the rumours grow.
