French gaming media sites are reporting that Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel is getting involved with an indie outfit called Wild Sheep Studios. Here’s a probably slightly dubious Google translation effort of French site gameblog.fr covering that story.
For those people, like me, who instantly started worrying about never seeing Beyond Good & Evil 2, it seems that Ancel is still part of Ubisoft too and maintaining his position there as creative director.
Wild Sheep Studios are Montpellier-based and said to be working on an original title of some sort. Well, obviously, since they’re a game studio. One of the French sources is speculating about a GamesCom reveal, but that may well just be guesswork.
