Today during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference it was announced that a new partnership with HitRECord founded by actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt, would be helping bring Beyond Good & Evil 2 to life even more with the possibility of bringing in artist from everywhere.
Last year during the reveal of Beyond Good & Evil 2 the Space Monkey Program was announced simultaneously in hopes of getting creators involved in BG&E2. Ubisoft wants that artist to take advantage of this partnership to not only get artist to promote themselves but bring Beyond Good & Evil 2 to life even more. The partnership with Hit Record is a chance to get the community involved from the beginning to bring all of its cultural differences to life.
While the news of a partnership with HitRECord is fantastic, there seems to have been a slight miscommunication about whether artist would be compensated for their work or not, taking to twitter minutes after the presentation Joseph Gordon-Levitt twitted this out:
You are super right. Huge oversight. I think script got trimmed at last minute and we fucked that up. It’s hugely important to me that @hitrecord pays artists fairly. Since 2010 we’ve paid community almost $3 million https://t.co/oauU4IUiyE
