Jurassic World Evolution Expands The Franchise

Yesterday, the long-awaited announcement trailer for Jurassic World Evolution was released.

Now, Frontier Developments has issued a press release for the highly anticipated game, which looks to expand upon the multi billion dollar franchise by allowing fans to explore mysterious Muertes Archipelago first unveiled in The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Read the full press release posted below...

Frontier Developments plc today announced its new game, Jurassic World Evolution, and revealed the first trailer. Based on Universal Pictures’ iconic film franchise and created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, the game expands on the official Jurassic World mythology and puts players in charge of cinema’s greatest tourist destination – where they will have the opportunity to create and manage their own Jurassic World. Launching in summer 2018, Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and the Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system. 

“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.”

Jurassic World Evolution evolves players’ relationship with the Jurassic World film franchise, placing them in control of operations on the legendary island of Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. Players will build their own Jurassic World as they bioengineer new dinosaur breeds and construct attractions, containment and research facilities. Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when ‘life finds a way.’ 

The game is scheduled to release next summer and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be in theatres June 2018.

There's a lot of interesting stuff to glean from this, most noticeably the ability to bioengineer new dinosaur breeds and the fact that every choice you make will change the outcome of the game! Fans can expect to find Jurassic World Evolution on shelves next summer - just in time for the theatrical release of J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

The Xena Reboot Is Dead

The Xena reboot isn't moving forward at NBC.

"Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn't warrant the reboot," Salke told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'd never say never on that one because it's such a beloved title but the current incarnation of it is dead."

Xena: Warrior Princess was poised to get the revival treatment with a new actress in the lead role. Original series co-creator Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi were on board to oversee the reboot. Lost writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach was also attached to pen the script, but he exited the series back in April due to creative differences with the network. 

Despite this, Salke says that NBC is still open to doing a Xena revival at a later date.

Starring Lucy Lawless, the original show ran from September 1995 to June 2001 starting as a spinoff from the Kevin Sorbo series Hercules. The show followed an Amazon warrior on a quest for redemption alongside her trusted companion Gabrielle.

The reboot was first announced back in July of 2015.
