Evil Genius 2: World Domination Is The Newest Victim Of The Coronavirus Global Pandemic

Evil Genius’ sequel will not be available this year, thanks to COVID-19.

Evil Genius 2: World Domination was announced in 2017 (it was that long ago?), and it was revealed at E3 2019. Until now, it seemed that Rebellion will release the simulator in 2020, but, unfortunately, it isn’t going to happen, as the developers have stated on Twitter.

„Dear Evil Genius community, we hope this finds you safe and well. Over the last five months or so, Rebellion has been working hard from the safety of our homes. We’ve tried to ensure there wouldn’t be a disturbance to our capacity and plans, but in such unexpected circumstances, we’ve had to make some changes. Today we’re announcing that 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 this difficult decision. We want to deliver a sequel that will do justice to the franchise and be loved and played by the Evil Genius community for years to come, just like the original. And while we know many of you will be disappointed to wait a little longer, launching next year affords us the time to do precisely that.

One of the things we most prize about Rebellion is our independence, which allows us the freedom to do what’s right for our games and our staff. That’s what we’re doing for Evil Genius 2. We hope you understand our decision. We’ll announce a final release date as soon as we can. Expect an update sooner rather than later. Thank you as ever for your support and your trust,” Chris Kingsley (chief technical officer and co-founder) and Jason Kingsley (CEO and co-founder of Rebellion) wrote.

Evil Genius 2: World Domination thus launches in 2021.
