Jurassic World Evolution 2 sales nearly 1 million

Frontier Developments have announced as part of their interim results and business update that Jurassic World Evolution 2 sales approached the million mark after just under three months of availability. It comes after an initial business update revealed that Jurassic World Evolution 2 sales were “below expectations” on the PC platform despite good reviews and encouraging pre-order sales.

Revenue also increased 33% to £ 49.1million (S1 FY21: £ 36.9million) for the company since exiting Jurassic World Evolution 2 and the continued performance of other games in the Frontier Developments portfolio, such as Underside of planet and Planet Zoo.

David Braben, Managing Director of Frontier Developments, said:

“We have had an unprecedented few years because of the coronavirus and the changes that have resulted from it, both positive and negative. While the challenges of the coronavirus remain, we believe we now have strong production processes that work in the new hybrid world, as evidenced by the on-time, high-quality delivery of the excellent Jurassic World Evolution 2, and that prepares us for future success. “

Although revenues increased by 33% partly due to Jurassic World Evolution 2 sales, gross profit margin was reduced to 63% from 71% last year (S1 FY21: 71%). This is due to the intellectual property license fees for Evolution of the Jurassic World 2 and console disc sales which achieve lower margins compared to disc sales.

“Our team did a fantastic job adapting to all of these challenges and finding new ways of working,” Braben continued. “We have the potential for much greater growth over the next several years as we reap the rewards of all the hard work we have put in to adapt to these changes and capitalize on an excellent portfolio of existing games as well as new ones. exciting new franchises such as Formula 1 management games and our Warhammer Age of Sigmar real time strategy game. We are well prepared with an excellent portfolio for an exciting future. “

In other news, Dangerous elite had a “difficult calendar year” due to the disappointing launch of its Odyssey expansion in May 2021. Despite this, the game continues to be supported and the Dangerous elite community has seen its morale boost thanks to their work.

Frontier Developments is also seeing a big increase in the form of new employees, with 250 new employees added to the company, bringing its total number to 745 as of December 31, 2021.
