Michel Ancel, the creator of Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman, has announced on his Twitter he is creating a new studio and will continue his work at Ubisoft at the same time.

Game Informer reports that Michel Ancel has opened Wild Sheep, a new and independent development studio. Ancel will continue to work at Ubisoft while concurrently working at Wild Sheep.

“Ubisoft Montpellier is a hotbed for artistic game development, including great games like Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil, and Valiant Hearts,” said Ubisoft managing director Xavier Poix.

“We are fortunate to have some of the industry’s finest talents, including Michel Ancel, working with us at our studio. In addition to spending some of his time on this new venture, Michel is leading the creative development of select projects at Ubisoft Montpellier, including an extremely ambitious new title that is very close to his and the team’s heart.”

Hopefully, Poix's quote is in reference to Beyond Good & Evil 2.
