Rebellion today announced that it’s working on a new fully-fledged sequel to the PC real-time strategy game Evil Genius. Evil Genius 2 is currently in the early stages of development for PC, although a console release hasn’t been ruled out.
Evil Genius was originally released on PC back in 2004. Developed by Elixir Studios and published by Sierra Entertainment, Evil Genius was a game beloved by many people. A mixture of real-time strategy and simulation elements, Evil Genius was pitched as the definitive ‘real-time mad scientist lair management strategy’. If you’re still not sure exactly what the game was like tonally, think of the James Bond villain Blofeld crossed with Dr. Evil from Austin Powers, and you’re part of the way there.
Whilst actual details for the game are quite thin on the ground, Rebellion is very definite on one point in particular: ‘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’. So, not free to play then.
