Note re Steam page for a cult adventure game signals Ubisoft’s decision: “Note: at the publisher’s request, Beyond Good and Evil is unlisted in the Steam store and will not be displayed in search engines.” At the time of publication of this article, Beyond Good and Evil is still available for purchase on GoG.

Ubisoft said it will announce more information about Beyond Good & Evil – 20th Anniversary Edition at the Limited Run Games Showcase on June 20 at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. Great Britain. Looks like a re-release is coming.

In August 2023, the Electronic Software Ratings Board (ESRB) rated Beyond Good & Evil: 20th Anniversary Edition for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch and PC. Then, in November, Ubisoft accidentally released Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition early, blaming it on a “technical error” while confirming an early 2024 release window.

Beyond Good & Evil premiered on November 11, 2003, so we skipped the actual 20th anniversary. On IGN Review 9/10 Beyond Good and Evil, we said, “Even though it takes a while before you would like it to, Beyond Good & Evil tells its story with incredible touch and polish. Moreover, it is a story worth telling.”

Meanwhile, Beyond Good & Evil 2 remains missing in action after yet another no-show at the Ubisoft Forward event this month.
