Michel Ancel, creator of Rayman, the Rabbids, and Beyond Good & Evil, has announced he is leaving the video game industry.
After spending 30 years with Ubisoft, Ancel is leaving to focus on his “second passion”; wildlife!
In an Instagram post, Ancel made the announcement that he was going to become a member of a wildlife sanctuary.
As Ancel confirms, previous projects Wild and Beyond Good and Evil 2 will continue on without him. Of course, the second Beyond Good and Evil game is still nowhere near completion. But, that doesn’t mean it isn’t being worked on as we speak.
We wish Ancel all the best in his new life, and thank him for giving the world Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil, and, we suppose, the Raving Rabbids. Have fun, Ancel!
