Many attempts have been made to create games based on the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchises, with mixed success. Jurassic World Evolution 2018, a park-building title from Frontier Developments, is one of the best examples, but many fossil fans will no doubt be looking for something a little more action-packed. Could Jurassic World Aftermath deliver a dinosaur-filled action adventure on PlayStation 4, or even PS5?
The title has yet to be officially announced, but a brand has recently been spotted online (smart girl, Jurassic Outpost). Current speculation suggests that Aftermath is a throwback to the canceled Jurassic World Survivor, which was billed as an open-world survival game set on the island from the movies. Unfortunately, there are no details at this time, but with the trademark registered, hopefully an announcement will be made soon.
A new game in the franchise would make sense given the next film, Jurassic World: Dominion, slated for 2021. It's possible Aftermath could take place during or after the events of the next film. Given what happens in the previous film, a focus on action or survival seems more likely. However, with just one title to go on, it's obviously the early days.
What kind of game do you want Jurassic World Aftermath to be? Could it be a PS5 action thriller, or something different? Hold on to your butts in the comments below.
