What Is Evil Genius 2: World Domination?
As the number suggests, the game is a sequel. The first game released in 2004 and was developed by Elixir Studios, a team that has since been closed.
Rebellion bought the rights to the name, and it's been in development since Q2 2017. After some delays, it'll launch this year – seventeen years after the original.
The game finally launches on March 30, 2021.
The game is in development at Rebellion, the team behind the Sniper Elite series, Strange Brigade, and the classic Aliens Versus Predator title.
As things stand, Evil Genius 2 is a PC exclusive.
The game is also only available on Steam for the time being. Pre-order here.
Players can pick one of four criminal masterminds.
- Red Ivan: the Heavy Muscle Madman
- Emma: the manipulative ex-spy master
- Zalika: a scientist zealot
- Maximilian: a narcissistic despot
