AT THE ZOO
Frontier Development (the developer behind Planet Coaster and Jurassic World Evolution) has announced that Planet Zoo will be its next project. Continuing the trend of resurrecting our childhood past times, this latest title will be another management sim, just in the vein of Zoo Tycoon instead of RollerCoaster Tycoon. The title is scheduled for a Fall 2019 release on PC.
Planet Zoo is said to have “the most authentic animals in videogame history.” Apparently, each animal will be an individual with its own thoughts and feelings that wants to explore the pens you build for them. Players will be able to nurture these creatures throughout their entire lives, helping them grow from wild beasts into disciplined friends. You’ll even be able to breed the animals and pass their traits onto new generations, creating a self-sustaining circle of life for your park.
Frontier CEO, Jonny Watts, said, “This is the zoo management game we’ve wanted to make for many years. We’ve challenged ourselves to build on the games we’ve made before and to carry the great legacy of classics like the Zoo Tycoon series forward. We’re taking everything we’ve learned from our past work and focusing on modern values – incredible authenticity, rich management, limitless creativity, and community sharing – to make our best-ever simulation game.”
