Beyond Good & Evil 2 has never been officially announced for the Wii U, but Ubisoft's robust support for Nintendo's console always gave us hope that it might be coming. Sadly, creator Michel Ancel has all but confirmed that the system won't be getting the game.

Speaking to GameReactor on the chances of a current-gen edition, Ancel said:

I think [on current platforms] Beyond Good & Evil 2 was possible, but it'd be painful. It's always possible to do anything on any kind of console, but sometimes you need to spend your energy not on the optimizations or things like that. Now that we have the [new] consoles around the corner we're working on them. We're trying to see how we can get the power out of those consoles because there are still things we need to understand on those consoles, but yes, Beyond Good & Evil is a project I always have in mind and I hope good things will come for this project very soon.
