Frontier Developments' new Jurassic World game set for June release
(ShareCast News) - Videogame developer Frontier Developments is set to launch Jurassic World Evolution alongside the release of the franchise's next film and the opening of a major industry trade show on 12 June.
The game, which will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, has been created in collaboration with Universal Pictures and is now available for digital pre-order on all platforms with exclusive content available for gamers who order early.
David Braben, chief executive of Frontier Developments, said: "This year's E3 Expo coincides with the launch of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film and it provides a perfect opportunity to invite videogame and movie fans at E3 and around the globe to build their own Jurassic World."
Players will enjoy the voice talents of Jeff Goldblum, who reprises his role of Ian Malcolm in the game, and can take control of operations at the franchise's iconic setting of Isla Nublar, constructing their own park, bioengineering new breeds of dinosaur and building new attractions and facilities.
Does anyone know the dates for each, maybe the Film and game on same day?
I'm not a game player but I might buy the game as it looks so good.
The SP is rising steadily - well in chunky leaps over past 2 weeks, I wonder if it will keep on until release - and then what will it do? I think the film will be a blockbuster if that term is still used...
You are so much better than RNS's...!
Nice rise today
TERN seems to be taking a well deserved breather...
This is about the 5th time I've bought FDEV, sold at profit but just should have kept them since I first bought...
"● Citigroup started coverage of Frontier Developments, the video game developer, with a buy rating and £15.40 price target. Consensus forecasts have significantly understated the revenue contribution from Jurassic World Evolution ahead of its release in mid-June, said Citi. It modelled for the game to deliver £70m of sales in the financial year ending 2019, which would deliver a 30 per cent upgrade to consensus earnings forecasts."
It just has to be on the list of the best upcoming games. The title will be released for the PS4, Windows 10 PC, and Xbox One. Developed by Frontier Developments, the game will allow you to place yourself at the heart of the Jurassic franchise. You can bio-engineer dinosaurs that feel and think. Youll get to build and manage your own Jurassic World. Even more interesting is that Jeff Goldblum will provide a lot of voice-over for the title."
In particular, there's an intriguing quote from the CEO. So now we know we can expect news of the fourth franchise with the JWE launch - and that this will also be well-known and likely pretty exciting:
"Braben himself.....also talks of beyond the impending release and says that in conjunction with that, Frontier will also be announcing the title of its fourth franchise.
Although giving nothing away on what this may actually be, he does confirm that it will be something that once more strikes a familiar chord with the audience."
I agree with the prior post - the overriding point is that JWE is progressing smoothly and on time. It's reassuring that PC and ED continue to sell well, but no-one should really have been expecting anything else from the update.
It'll be good to hear first details of the other games in the pipeline at some stage, perhaps in he next results narrative.
Figures in today's statement look completely fine.
Drop in share price is probably from people selling who were expecting something amazing. However that was never likely to happen at this point when there have been no new launches for a while. In 6 months or so Jurassic World Evolution is expected to be launched at which point things will get very interesting, in a positive way I expect.
