While there's nothing official out there Planet Xbox 360 is reporting
CVG has talked to Peter Molyneux and he spilled the beans on some of
the development details. One new feature will be a dog that will
follow you through your journey and change along with your character
(must be one special dog given how dogs age seven years for every human
year). The game will supposedly ship in December of 2006 (I can't
type that with a straight face given the extraordinary development
cycle for the first game).
