Beyond Good & Evil 2 Development Hell?

Renowned leakerator Tom Henderson took to Twitter with the latest on Beyond Good & Evil 2. The action/adventure prequel was first unveiled five years ago, and when series creator Michel Ancel left Ubisoft last year he said the project was "going super well." According to Tom, the game is actually in development hell, and some of the team expect it will eventually be cancelled:
Beyond Good & Evil 2 - The game is suffering a development crisis from a lack of creative direction since the title went into development, which was worsened by Michael Ancel's departure from the studio in September 2020.

What's worse, is that the game currently doesn't fit with Ubisoft's future ambitions and goals with future titles. The game has been described as "Skull & Bones 2.0" and although the game hasn't been canned officially, some developers believe it's a matter of time before it is.
