RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 was one of the best tycoon games ever. Coming out in 2004 it went on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide and really set the benchmark when it came to tycoon games. Frontier Developments is aiming to reboot RollerCoaster Tycoon under a new name and an entirely new IP. The new game will be called Coaster Park Tycoon.
Atari has already tried a similar attempt to bring RollerCoaster Tycoon back with its recent release of RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 mobile game. The game did not do so well and received quite a lot of flack from the gaming community.
If anyone know how to make a really great tycoon game it is original developer Frontier.
“Coaster Park games appeal to a great many people, as proven by RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. It is a field for which Frontier has unparalleled expertise and immense passion, and one to which we have long wanted to make a ‘no-holds-barred’ return. We want Coaster Park Tycoon to be another major step forward for the simulation genre, and sit alongside Elite: Dangerous as a second major self-published franchise.” Chief Creative Officer Jonny Watts stated in the official announcement.
Not much is really known about the game yet other that it is set to be out sometime in 2016. Being a huge fan on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 I am pretty excited about this!
