Ubisoft have found another excuse for why we're not playing Beyond Good & Evil 2 yet, this time blaming Rayman Origins and Legends for monopolising Michel Ancel's time. Which actually sounds fair enough to us, frankly.
At least it's still in the works for next-gen consoles.
"What's very important is that Michel Ancel is kind of doing too many things at the same time," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explained to Polygon. "He was working on Rayman Origins last year, and he's working a lot on Rayman Legends this year. So, you know, when he does that, he kind of puts too much of his time on the other projects that he has."
"So the fact is, that working on Legends is slowing the process on Beyond Good and Evil 2."
Guillemot went on to confirm that development is still progressing, only at a markedly slower pace.
"It's really a game that we've been working, we have worked on, and is a game that we want to do," he said. "But there are so many things that have to be done that, you know, this one is going to come in line at one point, but at the moment Michel is really on Rayman Legends."
