Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil creator starts Wild Sheep Studio, now working on BG&E sequel
Michel Ancel, best known as the creator of Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil, has started his own studio, but will continue working with Ubisoft.
“We are fortunate to have some of the industry’s finest talents, including Michel Ancel, working with us at our studio,” Ubisoft said in a statement to Eurogamer. “In addition to spending some of his time on this new venture, Michel is leading the creative development of select projects at Ubisoft Montpellier, including an extremely ambitious new title that is very close to his and the team’s heart.”
Specifically, Ubisoft clarified in a separate statement, the studio is “working with the core tenets of BG&E, they’re developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel.” Whether that translates into Beyond Good & Evil 2 remains to be seen, but fans can now safely expect a continuation of the classic.
