Jurassic World Evolution 3 Coming from Frontier

In May, Frontier Developments announced that it signed a license with Universal Products & Experiences for a third Jurassic World Evolution game, which is expected to be released sometime between 2025 and 2026.

The hit Jurassic World Evolution series allows gamers, across multiple platforms, to realize their own parks filled with prehistoric species. The original Jurassic World Evolution was released in 2018, accompanying the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom that year and Jurassic World Evolution 2 was released several months before Jurassic World Dominion in the fall of 2022 and is still releasing DLC and updates currently. With the [currently scheduled] release of “Jurassic World 4″ for July 2nd of 2025, the timing fits for Frontier to release a new installment in their park builder series.

There has been no word on what additions, enhancements, or changes will be in this new JWE game yet. The most recent DLC and Update for JWE2, the Park Managers pack (which included species such as Microceratus, Segisaurus, and the Megalodon) was released on May 16th, 2024. It is not known if this will be the last major update/DLC yet for JWE2 while Frontier switches gears towards production on the new game.

‘Tales From A Jurassic World’ – Season Two of Fan-Produced Audio Drama Releasing June 7th

Hey Jurassic Outpost readers! Guest contributor Tom Jurassic here, and I am super excited to share that there will be a second season of ‘Tales From A Jurassic World’ debuting from June 7th to celebrate Jurassic June this year.

Haven’t heard of this audio drama before? No problem! In this article I’ll introduce you to the world of TFAJW, and will give you a flavour of what you have to look forward to when the second season debuts in a couple of short weeks.

Tales From A Jurassic World was created to answer a fundamental question which many of us had after watching Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – how does our society respond when dinosaurs are loose in the wilds of mainland USA?

The series is told from the perspective of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, with Agents Ben Morrison and Lucy Brown attending to a variety of scenarios where dinosaurs are integrating with the everyday lives of people across the country. The first season runs from an encounter with a Stygimoloch at a gas station (yes, that Stygimoloch), all the way through to a thrilling climax which sees the agents come face-to-jaw with the Allosaurus we saw in Battle at Big Rock. 

The series was born in October of 2022 – with a Halloween Special which premiered on The Jurassic Park Podcast, and although the series Jurassic World: Chaos Theory now plays within the same space, the crew behind TFAJW are working hard to conclude the story first set in motion with the initial season.

The second season of the audio drama promises more of what fans enjoyed about the first season alongside some nostalgic tributes and moments which are likely to shock and delight fans of the franchise in equal measure. 

Season Two’s opening episode rewinds the clock to the early 2000s – after the events of Jurassic Park III, and allows us to return to Isla Sorna alongside Howard King and a team of mercenaries undertaking an important mission. This episode sets to sow the seeds of BioSyn’s future in InGen’s past – something which will lead to the company eventually overtaking the former leader in genetics experimentation after the events of Jurassic World.

The second season promotes Howard King to a season regular, and will see the US Fish and Wildlife Agents grapple with increasingly deadly and dangerous animals – including some fan favourites returning from Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous.

It’s fair to say that TFAJW is only possible because of the wonderful community of Jurassic fans. We have so many voice actors who give their time and energy to this project voluntarily, and even have a professional composer who has opted to support the project as and where he can.

I’d particularly like to shout out Jared Ransom, Ashli Friel, Antonio Bustos and Brooks Leibee – all people who have been invaluable contributors throughout the process of developing this show. 

This project is really created by fans of this franchise for fans. We hope that you join us this June, and share in a story which excites us as we imagine the wonder and horror of a world where dinosaurs are a part of our everyday existence.

So, what are you waiting for?

Nick Robinsion, “Zach” From ‘Jurassic World,’ Wishes To Return To The Franchise

It’s been nearly a decade since the events of 2015’s ‘Jurassic World;’ after the Indominus Rex escaped its pen, causing a chain reaction of carnage on Isla Nublar. Zach Mitchell, played by Nick Robinson, survived the massacre. But where has he been since the dinosaurs reclaimed their “dominion?”

Well, Nick is entertaining this idea!

CoveredGeekly had an exclusive conversation with Nick, asking if he would come back to the franchise in the upcoming film. Nick says:

“I’d love to [return], but I don’t know. ‘Zach’ I think is probably still in therapy from the trauma of the first movie. But […] I’d love for that character to come back. It’d be really fun.”

While it is nice to know he is willing to return, it is all up to the script and the filmmakers if he really will. This is not a confirmation by any means. Still, it is nice to entertain what happened to Zach after the first ‘Jurassic World’ film. Was he forever traumatized by the event? Did he stop giving his brother a hard time? Did his parents divorce, or did they stay together [for SOME reason]? Has he stopped staring at girls, thinking something will actually happen? Did he finally respect his girlfriend? Maybe his experience at Nublar inspired him to hunt dinosaurs out of revenge for what happened to him and Gray?

Nick Robinson has been busy since ‘Jurassic World,’ on shows like ‘Melissa & Joey,’ but most notably as Simon in the film ‘Love, Simon’ as well as the spinoff series ‘Love, Victor.’ However, it should be mentioned that he did reprise his role as Zach for the ‘Lego: Jurassic World’ video game!

What do you think happened to Zach after ‘Jurassic World,’ and would you like to see it happen in a film? Share your comments below, and as always stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost for the latest!

Gareth Edwards in Final Talks to Direct the Next Jurassic World Film

After talks with David Leitch and his producing partners fell through, Universal Pictures and executive producers Steven Spielberg & Frank Marshall were on the hunt for a new director for the next Jurassic World film, and it looks like they have found their match: Gareth Edwards (director of 2010’s Monsters, 2014’s Godzilla, 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and 2023’s The Creator) is in final negotiations to direct the new film!

Executive producer Steven Spielberg, along with producers Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley, will spearhead the project under Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. Sara Scott and Jacqueline Garell will oversee production on behalf of Universal.

While specific plot details for the untitled Jurassic World sequel remain under wraps (other than ‘militarized dinos’ are not featured), the film is rumored to kickstart a “new Jurassic era” hinting at a fresh new, dinosaur-filled adventure – likely with no returning characters from past films. That’s right – anyone is fair game to be dinosaur food, as the character armor wielded by actors like Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum will no longer be directly related.

The script penned by Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park scribe David Koepp is reported to be ‘leaner and meaner’, invoking vague similarities to John Carpenter’s ‘Escape from New York’. It has been reported that Spielberg and the studio are very happy with the script, which is several drafts in, and as such are very protective of it and do not want the story meddled with. According to The Hollywood Reporter and Jeff Sneider, Spielberg is more involved this time as he does not want a repeat of ‘Jurassic World Dominion’, and became worried the series would follow the trajectory of the Transformers films becoming bigger and dumber with each installment.

Pre-production is expected to begin at Sky Studios in the UK at the end of this month, with filming starting in June. The movie is slated for release July 2nd, 2025.

Stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost, as more news is sure to be hatching soon.

NEW Details from the Cancelled ‘Jurassic World Survivor’ Video Game from Splash Damage

At long last we have some new details on the now cancelled Jurassic World video game, Jurassic World Survivor. We last heard about the video game in 2017 when a screenshot from a build of the game was leaked, showcasing Jurassic Park style Velociraptors.

We have now uncovered some new details about the game – after Cryptic Studios Seattle branch closed the game was passed to Splash Damage Games and saw an overhaul of its concept as development continued. The game would have launched on PC and consoles, focusing on custom character survivors left behind on Isla Nublar, post the Jurassic World incident.

Gameplay revolved around the struggle to survive and eventually find rescue alongside all your favorite Jurassic Park dinosaurs, poachers, BioSyn, and more! We published this information in a new video which you can see below, which includes details about the game’s story and includes lines straight from the script:

Jurassic World Survivor was going to take place roughly 1-2 months after the events of Jurassic World. A category 5 storm has further destroyed the island’s infrastructure, leaving the park in ruins with the dinosaurs roaming free. With the island in disarray, rival corporations use this opportunity to send in their teams to steal secrets and silence any potential witnesses.

In the game, you would play as stranded civilians – the ultimate goal being to find a way to escape the island while facing various threats along the way. You would take on the role as civilians who crash landed on the island during the storm, and you would have the ability to create your own survivor and continue to customize them overtime with items you find on the island.

Signage and visitor maps around the abandoned park would be faded, overwritten by notes from survivors and evacuation teams sent out by InGen and other parties. Dinosaur skeletons would litter the various areas, having been picked apart by the various scavengers.

The power would not be online – tasks potentially would have included rebooting the geothermal power station, which in itself would be a very difficult task. The monorail would also play a role in this game – players could potentially restore emergency power to individual monorail sections allowing faster travel between the various island sectors.

Buildings would litter the island and would contain resources for the player, such as InGen Survival Shelters, Jurassic World park buildings like store rooms, utility sheds, warehouses and garages.

Along with the threat of dinosaurs, different factions visiting the island could also pose a threat to the player – these would include InGen Rescue Teams, BioSyn Operatives, and Eco Terrorists, to name a few.

There is a lot more information included in the video, be sure to check that out and let us know what you think of the cancelled game.

Hopefully something similar can see the light of day soon enough!
