"Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil cost the company some big money, and for that reason, it's been seen as a mistake."
The best mistake they've ever made. Gotta love that game.
One of my favorites from last gen. Sad it didn't make money.
It was a game from the first xbox then ported to 360.
Read the article. It's a little easier to swallow in context.
Ubisoft have completely lost the spirit of experiment. They just churn out modish crap these days.
Well ,to be honest, they can't really be that motivated when their unique games (Like the new Rayman-games, Red Steel 2 and this) sell like crap. But yeah, would be cool to see something new from them that isn't a mission-based open-world game...
Well, Ubisoft have been a mistake for some time now, so that's understandable. Better stick to what prints money, right?
How have Ubisoft been a mistake? As far as I'm concerned, they're incredibly hard workers by pumping out multiple new and diverse games every single year.
There are many 'great' games that were commercial failures.
It's a shame good games don't sell because because the main character is a woman, or because their aren't guns in it. And its also a shame we live in a world where AAA companies feel games have to sell at least three million copies for it to be considered anything other than a failure.
And because that is how the feel about the game, it means that we will likely never see the sequel.
Its hard to believe that they still feel that way, but then it shows why the "industry" has a problem with their "products", neither then nor now have they really been put in danger by the game's lack of monetisation.It has a huge followership because it was awesome. I dont think it needs a sequel, though, and Ubisoft really does risky things, like ZombiU or Rayman Legends.
I could understand that game wasn't a success, but many games do and many of them became a cult classics, hell, I am very big fan of BG&E and if it wont get a sequel, my hard gonna bleed hard, brain aswell, but if they gonna stick to same stuff and not gonna risk with some unique stuff, but every year gonna release AC.. I dont know, really.. but what I heard BG&E HD sold not a bad amount.. btw.. Rayman: legends and Rabbids Go home are awesome games, but I really want to see BG&E2 and Child of eden 2, hell I even want that ubisofts canceled game.. oh man, what's happening with some companies is there most of unique content gonna be made only by indies? canceled game: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
