One of the many announcements made during Xbox's Gamescom Press Con will be of interest to all the Jurassic Park fans out there. Jurassic World Evolution will be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the Summer of 2018. According to the trailer, players will be able to build their own Jurassic Park theme park, create dinosaurs, and deal with the very, very real possibility that things are going to go horribly wrong — which is pretty much a certainty in the Jurassic Park universe.
The trailer, which is running on pre-rendered footage, accentuates that last point by showing us T-Rexs charging fences and attacking bioengineers. The game will be developed by Frontier Developments — UK-based developers that have a strong history of theme-park development games, notably ListWinds, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Elite, and Planet Coaster. So this is absolutely within their usual wheelhouse.
Jurassic World Evolution is definitely being released to coincide with the theatrical release of the Jurassic World sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom coming June 22, 2018 in the United States. However, Microsoft and Frontier Developments aren't able to put a definitive date on the game, keeping it with Summer 2018.
As mentioned above, Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Summer 2018. Make sure to check out the official Gamescom trailer below.
