JURASSIC EVOLUTION 2 PC LAUNCH SALES LOWER THAN EXPECTED BUT FRONTIER POSITIVE ABOUT ITS FUTURE
Frontier Developments, the owner of PC-centric titles like Planet Zoo, Planet Coaster, and Elite Dangerous, has provided an update on its financial progress for the current fiscal year. While there are some positives, there is also some disappointment.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 can combine both.
Frontier revealed that around half a million people had created their dino parks in all formats since its November 9 launch. Although sales on PC have been slower, the publisher and developer from Cambridge admit to an entire launch window. It expects the game will still surpass the original.
The Christmas season is fast approaching, giving Frontier hope. Jurassic World Evolution 2 is currently on around 440,000 Steam wishlists.
Frontier also believes Jurassic World Dominion, the sixth Jurassic Park/World film, will significantly affect future sales. This should lead to a strong year. Frontier is confident that the game will be the most successful of the year, despite PC concerns.
Other than that, the original Jurassic World Evolution and Planet Coaster continue to operate, while Elite Dangerous, Odyessy struggles to gain a foothold.
The outlook for Frontier is positive. Future releases of F1 management games, FAR: Change Tides and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, are also on Frontier’s upcoming list.
Frontier founder and CEO David Braben were full of praises and optimism in a Jurassic World Evolution 2 sales and the broader business statement.
“A huge thank you to all involved in the launch of Jurassic World Evolution 2!” Although initial PC sales were lower than expected, the game is still being played by approximately half a million people across all platforms and has received very positive and constructive reviews. It will be a great addition to our already impressive game portfolio. Frontier’s future is bright, and our portfolio grows. “
Jurassic World Evolution 2 is now available on Steam.
