More On: Planet Zoo

Frontier isn't a stranger to making theme park sims and this game seems be up their alley. Planet Zoo was announced today and just like the title suggests, you'll be building a Zoo for your virtual people to peruse.

I used to play some of Microsoft's Zoo Tycoon and this one looks like it'll be a great deal of fun in that vein. Create a zoo that'll be both fun and informative. I'm sure we'll see people trying to mix and match animals in order to see what kind of chaos it'll produce. 

Planet Zoo is scheduled for sometime this Fall for the PC.

Frontier Announces Planet Zoo
Build and Manage a World for Authentic Living Animals in the Ultimate Zoo Simulation

Create Your Own Zoo Where Animal Welfare and Conservation Comes First in the Brand New Game From the Publisher and Developer of Planet Coaster, Coming Exclusively for PC in Fall 2019
Cambridge, UK – April 24, 2019 -- Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) is proud to announce Planet Zoo. From the makers of Planet Coaster (2016) and Jurassic World Evolution (2018) comes the ultimate zoo simulation, featuring authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity. Build and manage a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation comes first. Simulation runs wild in Planet Zoo, exclusively for PC in Fall 2019.
Planet Zoo presents the most authentic animals in videogame history. From playful lion cubs to mighty elephants, every animal in Planet Zoo is an individual who thinks, feels and explores the world you build around them. They care about their surroundings and each other, with complex environmental and social needs. Nurture your animals throughout their lives, study and manage every species to see them thrive, and help them raise young to pass their genes onto future generations.
Manage your own zoo in an expressive world that reacts to every choice you make. Focus on the big picture or go hands-on and look after the smallest details. Thrill visitors with prestigious animals and famous exhibits, develop your zoo and research new technologies, and release animals back into the wild to repopulate the planet.
Unleash your creativity with the next evolution of Planet Coaster’s best-in-class creation mechanics. Craft stunning scenery and habitats, dig lakes and rivers, raise hills and mountains, and carve tunnels and caves as you build your own zoo. See your animals and visitors respond to your creative vision, and share your designs with friends in Planet Zoo’s online community. Bring the world’s greatest designs home to your own zoo for your animals and visitors to enjoy.
"This is the zoo management game we’ve wanted to make for many years," said Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier.  "We’ve challenged ourselves to build on the games we’ve made before and to carry the great legacy of classics like the Zoo Tycoon series forward. We’re taking everything we’ve learned from our past work and focusing on modern values – incredible authenticity, rich management, limitless creativity and community sharing – to make our best-ever simulation game. We hope you’ll join us when Planet Zoo launches later this year."
