Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has frequently showered Nintendo Switch with praise in the past few months, and continues to tease a game in development for the console that will “surprise” players.
This is increasingly expected to be Beyond Good & Evil 2, a reboot in development at Ubisoft Montpellier that will release as a Nintendo Switch exclusive in 2018. That rumour has been one that Ubisoft had once swiftly moved to silence.
“With the design and the unique abilities of the Switch, Nintendo should revolutionise again the way we play,” Guillemot teased (translated by NeoGAF’s LordKano). “Ultra-accessible, this console will offer to all of us the liberty and pleasure to share our game experience and to play anywhere and at any time.
“The Ubisoft teams who are creating games for the Switch are inspired by all these new possibilities, and I’m very happy that we can continue to make big things with Nintendo. In addition to Just Dance 2017, I’m thinking especially about a game that will surprise you a lot!”
Nintendo Switch will release worldwide in March 2017.
