- It's been in preproduction for year or so, with only 10-12 people actively working at it
- The apparent holdup, not too suprisingly if true, is Ubisoft. Specifically Ancel's bosses who haven't yet officially greenlit it, so it must be something they're messing with in their spare time. Mega Man 2 anyone?
- If the project is a go, it will be for 360/PS3 at least (according to Kotaku)
- Says Gamespot, he dropped this extra hint: "We want to be in continuity with the first game, with a big variety of levels, lots of emotion in the gameplay, and characters we care about. This time we are dealing with planet Hillys' future, and the relationship with animals...."
I don't know that it needs a sequel; the original could've stood on its' own for years more even with the cliffhanger - but it's Ancel, and if he's working with the same team, especially the same composer, it's looking good already. If they do us just one favor, all I can ask is keep the damn thing in bug testing longer. And/or give the louses who are supposed to report glitches (game breaking ones at that) a raise.
