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.

In a recent job posting for an Engine Programmer, Ubisoft outlines the duties of this new position as someone who will be working on the game engine for Beyond Good and Evil 2. What's most interesting is that this title does not come with the responsibilities of completing or designing the game's engine, but more along the lines of maintenance and fine-tuning. This new position is specifically tasked with tweaking the existing code for improvements on structure and clarity without making any larger changes that would alter the overall behavior of the program.

Given both the qualifications for this Engine Programmer position and its specific mission statement, this is likely a backend programmer who is being brought in to hone in on optimization and bug fixes. Ubisoft specifically hiring for this position as a developer for Beyond Good and Evil 2 could indicate that the base engine for the game has been completed, and is in the final polishing stages before it is ready for release. It should be noted that this doesn't mean that other important factors such as visual and audio assets or even level designs are finished at this point, but the foundation for them is being smoothed over.
