Jurassic World Evolution hits one million sales

Frontier's third game IP gets off to a strong start

Jurassic World Evolution has hit one million sold, developer Frontier has announced.

The game became part of Steam's Platinum best-sellers within just weeks of its June 12th launch on PC. The one million sales were achieved over five weeks across all platforms - both digital and physical releases. The physical versions for PS4 and Xbox One arrived on July 3rd, with boxed sales managed by Sold Out.

"We are really pleased with Jurassic World Evolution and are delighted to have crossed the 1 million unit threshold so quickly," said Frontier CEO David Braben. "There is no doubt that initial sales have benefitted from the worldwide awareness created by the film release, but it's the quality of the game that's really important and I believe our team have done a terrific job in creating a game that a wide range of players are now enjoying around the world".

It's the third game franchise Frontier has worked on since it went public, with Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster the other two. Elite has sold almost 2.75 million copies as of August last year, whereas Planet Coaster was on one million units sold.

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz last month, David Braben says that fans can expect an increase in releases going forward. He also revealed that Frontier is planning to move into third-party publishing.
