The father of Rayman, Rabbids, and Beyond Good and Evil, and a driving force behind creativity at Ubisoft for decades, Michel Ancel, has retired to pursue a life-long passion of running a wildlife sanctuary.
There's something about someone following their passions to do something different, especially after accomplishing so much, that I have always been inspired by.
But what's next for his two projects (and near decade long development cycles): Wild and Beyond Good and Evil 2?
We love to see folks following their dreams, as wild as they may be...in Virtual Legality.
