Ubisoft surprised fans at E3 2017 by announcing Beyond Good and Evil 2, a sequel to the 2003 cult game. Following several snippets of footage and development diaries, news regarding the forthcoming episode has dimmed down.
However, it appears the game's still in deep production, as a new job listing has been spotted on LinkedIn. Ubisoft's Headquarters in Paris is hiring for the role of a 3D Programmer, with the successful candidate expected to focus on Beyond Good and Evil 2's graphics and visuals:
Within the Beyond Good & Evil 2 development team, you will be responsible for the development of new features of the graphics engine, while ensuring the support and optimization of tools related to it.
Beyond Good And Evil 2 Job Listing Emerges As Development Continues
Beyond Good and Evil 2's experienced a rocky production path following the resignation of the sequel's original director, Michel Ancel, last year. Separately, Ubisoft Montpellier has begun work on another game, causing many fans to speculate if the sequel's scrap is imminent.
While the French publisher has assured fans development is ongoing, no release date has been confirmed, despite its initial announcement 4 years ago.
Another Ubisoft project, Skull and Bones, has faced a similar trajectory. The pirate adventure has reportedly faced an expensive, troublesome development and it's only moved forward thanks to a deal with the Singaporean Government.
