Jurassic World Evolution hits one million sales


Life found a way

Frontier Developments has announced that its hit dino theme park simulator Jurassic World Evolution has reached a combined sales total of one million units. This is factoring in the PS4, Xbox One and PC releases along with digital sales figures (which I'm sure Steam sale figures overwhelmingly contributed to). The physical release launched a few weeks after the digital version, but that certainly didn't stop enthusiasm for this game.

Frontier CEO David Braben told GamesIndustry.biz, "We are really pleased with Jurassic World Evolution and are delighted to have crossed the 1 million unit threshold so quickly. There is no doubt that initial sales have benefited from the worldwide awareness created by the film release, but it's the quality of the game that's really important and I believe our team have done a terrific job in creating a game that a wide range of players are now enjoying around the world."

I think the lack of any significant Jurassic Park games over the last decade is what really helped push Evolution to success. Like Destructoid's own Dan Roemer, I didn't find the game particularly good, but it is certainly the best looking video game based on the popular film franchise. It also does a better job of capturing the essence of the films than any title before it. That is likely key in what helped propel Ian Malcolm's worst nightmare to became a smash hit.
