Jurassic World Evolution 2 announced at Summer Game Fest 2021

Summer Game Fest 2021 announcements keep rolling with the world premiere of Jurassic World Evolution 2.


Summer Game Fest 2021 world premieres keep coming with Jurassic World Evolution 2, a sequel to the dinosaur-themed park construction and management simulation. Jurassic Park franchise alumni Jeff Goldblum appeared in his trademark cool guy starter kit with black t-shirt and leather jacket during Summer Game Fest 2021 to debut a new game for dinosaur and theme-park sim fans everywhere. Jurassic World Evolution 2 was shown off with a minute and a half long cinematic teaser announcing a 2021 release date for PC via Steam and Epic Game Store, PS4/PS5, and Xbox One/Series consoles.

Jurassic World Evolution is a theme-park builder and management game that tasks players with creating their own dinosaur-filled getaway destination that is loosely based on the Jurassic World films. It was released on June 12, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, as well as Nintendo Switch on November 3 that same year. Jurassic World Evolution shares a strong pedigree with Frontier Developments work on Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo, and Elite Dangerous. Now, almost exactly two years after the first game's launch, Jurassic World Evolution 2 has been announced with a cinematic teaser presented at Summer Game Fest 2021.

No gameplay was shown during the teaser but viewers are treated to majestic pre-rendered prehistoric creatures and fly-over scenes of park buildings. The camera pans quickly from each dino to the next, capturing them in impressive detail, one aspect that the first game was praised for. The teaser ends with an appearance from an iconic underwater giant predator that is featured in the movies with a release window of 2021 on Steam and Epic Game Store for PCs, PS4/PS5, and Xbox One/Series consoles. An official website is available for more information on Jurassic World Evolution 2.
