Looks like Peter Molyneux Twitter account was hacked. Someone hacked his account and stated that he was retiring, that Godus was going to be removed from the Steam Store, and that the 2010 Xbox 360 game Fable 3 was his “biggest mistake” and that “it pushed me and my team to the limits.” His company revealed that, no he isn’t retiring and that Godus, which apparently is getting abysmal reviews from Steam, is still being made.

But there is news of a game that is still being made…

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is still being made. Even though the original was made 13 years ago, the sequel is still in the process of being made. The reason follows below:

Ancel was asked outright if the follow-up was still being made, to which he answered: “Yeah, but it’s difficult because it’s hard for me to redo the same kind of game two times.

“I always want to do something different. It has to be great. When we started [the first] game there was not that much pressure.”

Which I find funny as it was then being touted as the “Zelda Killer”… how many times have we heard that about a game?
