Frontier Developments, the ones behind last year’s Jurassic World Evolution and Planet Coaster, have announced: “the ultimate zoo simulation” called Planet Zoo.
As the name implies, Planet Zoo allows you to manage your own zoo in an “expressive world that reacts to every choice you make.” Building upon Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo has tools to craft amazing scenery and habitats, dig lakes and rivers and create mountains.
“This is the zoo management game we’ve wanted to make for many years,’ said Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier. ‘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. We hope you’ll join us when Planet Zoo launches later this year.”
