They obviously don't put the resources since its just Ancel's pet project, Ubisoft probably has no idea what this is,or why anyone would care about BGAE in 2021.

A safer, low budget sequel closer to the original game at least could have a chance of getting released,but its too late

During this time, Ancel began working part-time with Ubisoft while splitting his time with Wild Sheep Studio, a company which he founded with Sony's money. In 2017, Ubisoft hired another creative director, Jean-Marc Geffroy, to work alongside Ancel on Beyond Good and Evil 2. That relationship quickly soured. Then a third director was added. All of this created friction that led to a situation where, "a good dozen people go on sick leave, probably more... Meeting people with tears in their eyes, it happens often" as one employee described it. The majority of the blame is placed on Ancel, however—blame that he calls "fake news".

This game will be added to the list of games that eventually come out 10+ years late and will be disaster.
