Rebellion, the studio behind the Sniper Elite series, have announced they have started development on Evil Genius 2.
Development only began in spring, so it’s unlikely we’ll get to see our first look at Rebellion’s sequel anytime soon, but the studio did announce that Evil Genius 2 is being developed with their in-house Asura engine, and will be the first RTS game to be built with it.
Rebellion originally planned to run a crowd-funding campaign for a sequel several years ago after acquiring the rights to the franchise, but with the studio busy with becoming its own publisher at the time, and putting resources into in-house projects such as Zombie Army Trilogy and Battlezone for PSVR, the plans were shelved.
Did you play the original Evil Genius? Are you looking forward to the sequel? Let us know below.
