Frontier Games has announced Jurassic World Evolution, a new video game based on the hit movie franchise that will come to consoles and PCs in summer 2018.

Developed in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, the game expands on the official Jurassic World mythology and puts players in charge of cinema’s iconic tourist destination – where they will have the opportunity to create and manage their own Jurassic World. 

“As long-time fans of the entire Jurassic series we’re thrilled to be putting players in charge of their own Jurassic World,” said Frontier’s chief creative officer, Jonny Watts. “We’re excited to bring over fifteen years of management, simulation, and creature development expertise to a destination and franchise that remains an inspiration to us.”

The game is scheduled to release next summer alongside Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which will debut in cinemas in June 2018. Jurassic World Evolution will be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
