When is the game coming out?
Evil Genius 2: World Domination will launch in the first half of 2021
We had originally planned for Evil Genius 2 to launch this year. However, the impact of COVID-19, transitioning from the studio to our homes and adapting to new ways of working all contributed to the difficult decision to delay the game.
We'll announce a final release date as soon as we can.
Are you bringing it to consoles?
We haven’t discounted anything yet, but at the moment we’re focusing on making the game great on PC.
Can I buy the soundtrack separately?
We haven't announced any plans for the soundtrack just yet. In the meantime, you can get the soundtrack for the original Evil Genius for free, by signing up to our newsletter.
Will the game have any DLC or micro-transactions?
There’s nothing to announce now but if you look at our previous games like Sniper Elite 4 and Strange Brigade we like to offer downloadable content at a fair price.
What engine are you using?
We're using Asura, our in-house engine, which we've continued to develop and iterate on for nearly two decades.
Why has it taken so long?
We originally had plans to crowd-fund Evil Genius 2 and we began making steps towards that. The success of the Sniper Elite series in recent years changed things. We started to feel it wasn't fair to ask fans to fund a new game if we did not need them to. So we shifted our plans. We've now got the right team, all of the additional support from our new studios and the game is now in a really good place.
Almost every aspect has been expanding and improved upon. We're introducing new evil geniuses, new minions, and new henchmen. We have a completely new line-up of super agents for you to keep at bay, new and improved traps to deploy, and lots of new furnishings, equipment and rooms to build in your evil lair.
