Released back in 2003 Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been one of the longest in-development games in history. Ubisoft has constantly stated the game has not been canceled and only recently has information risen about the game is a prequel and a cooperative experience. As you might expect, fans weren’t too happy with the game’s direction considering the original was a single-player adventure. Now it has been confirmed through the official Beyond Good and Evil 2 website that it’ll need an internet connection.

You can play the game along but to play online an internet connection is needed, shocking I know.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is an online, multiplayer game with a rich co-op and seamless experience. As such, the game will only be playable with an internet connection in order to have seamless navigation, receive dynamic updates, and play with friends (which is certainly better when you’re playing as a Space Pirate!). The choice to play co-op, however, remains yours to make, so playing BGE2 solo is absolutely possible if you’re into that lone Space Pirate kinda thing…”

This most likely won’t resonate well with fans of the series as the original was heralded for being an incredible single-player adventure. It’s clear that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will take a massive new direction and after waiting for nearly 15 years for a sequel it’s either this or nothing.

Beyond Good & Evil 2  is now in development without a release date.
