Evil Genius 2 Officially Announced.
Evil Genius 2 is happening and it is in development at Rebellion. Today they announced that they are working on Evil Genius 2. Evil Genius is a PC game developed by Elixir Studio back in 2004. It has been about Thirteen Years since its launch and today Rebellion has finally announced a Sequel to the game.
Evil Genius 2 is not a remastered version but a sequel to the original game. “We`d like to make this super-duper clear — this isn`t a remaster. Evil Genius 2 will be a fully-fledged sequel and it won`t be free-to-play.”Rebellion said, “Ever since Evil Genius came under the Rebellion roof, we`ve always believed that Elixir`s beloved real-time, lair-management and world-domination simulation deserved a follow-up,”
The game is currently focused on PC only but we might see it coming to the consoles too. “Our focus currently is on a PC release, but as ever we`ll look at other platforms and see what fits and what doesn`t.”
Talking about the delay Rebellion wrote,
“Firstly, we were in the middle of a big transition into becoming our own publisher and we needed to put resources into the projects that became Zombie Army Trilogy, Battlezone on PSVR and Sniper Elite 3 and 4. Secondly, we decided crowd-funding wasn`t the way we wanted to go. After the growing success of the Sniper Elite series and other Rebellion games IP, we started to feel it wasn`t fair to ask fans to fund a new game if we didn`t need them to! With some big projects now out the door and being enjoyed by gamers worldwide, we feel like now is the time to return to the world of Evil Genius.”
After the launch of original Evil Genius in 2004, there had been two more Evil Genius Games. Evil Genius: WMD and Evil Genius Online. Both of them were Facebook games. More news will be coming about Evil Genius soon. Rebellion asks us to bear with it a little longer. We will keep you updated.
