    Ubisoft's cult classic game, Beyond Good and Evil, is the next entry in the company's 30th anniversary lineup, where each month, they offer a free game on Uplay to celebrate. The game initially launched in 2003 for Playstation 2, Microsoft XBox, and Nintendo GameCube. This announcement comes right after the game's lead developer, Michel Ancel, heavily teased a sequel to the game being in pre-production yesterday on Twitter. He had been posting concept art for a game that shared many of the same features of Beyond Good and Evil, claiming they are for an upcoming game he's working on with Ubisoft.

    EDIT: The teases have been confirmed by Ubisoft, and a new Beyond Good and Evil is officially in development. You can find the announcement linked here.

    They've been teasing BGE2 since 2008. Remember the trailer? I'll believe it when I'm snapping photos of new aliens, no sooner.

    I wonder how big the game will be. With today's technology, this could turn out to be an epic space exploration game. Kinda like No Man's Sky, but with story and purpose. But it won't probably come out any time soon :(

    Ancel teased a lot of stuff that we never got to see in the end, not believing it until an official announcement.

    So BG&E on PC is free this month?

    What's the catch? What do I need to do to get this that makes it not really free?

    That's really the only catch. But a free game is still a free game, uplay annoyances or not.

    Are many companies making their own steam platform these days for PC? this blows that EA origin started this trend if so
