Beyond Good and Evil 2 cannot be played offline: Ubisoft

by on December 23, 2018

Ubisoft had a new Space Monkey Report for Beyond Good and Evil 2.

This report with video can be viewed here and one of the questions answered was about the internet requirement. Ubisoft responded as quoted below:

Will we always need an internet connection even if we’re playing BGE2 solo? (o_gilgamesh, Twitter)

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is an online, multiplayer game with a rich co-op and seamless experience. As such, the game will only be playable with an internet connection in order to have seamless navigation, receive dynamic updates, and play with friends (which is certainly better when you’re playing as a Space Pirate!). The choice to play co-op, however, remains yours to make, so playing BGE2 solo is absolutely possible if you’re into that lone Space Pirate kinda thing…

It looks like you will be able to play solo but cannot play offline.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still in development. No release window or confirmed platforms have been mentioned so far. Some retailers have started taking preorders on PS4 and Xbox One which would imply a PC release as well.
