In what seems to be the year of Arena FPS and Sims we get another theme park simulator with Coaster Park Tycoon. The not very well named game is being made by Frontier, the same guys responsible for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 and Elite Dangerous. This makes the 4th coming out soon including Rollercoaster Tycoon World, Parkitect, Scream Ride (Also made by Frontier) and Coaster Park Tycoon.
I don’t entirely blame Frontier for the name choice as the devs from Parkitect realized that all the names for theme park management games was pretty much taken making it hard to come up with a name for the game. There isn’t much info on the game so we’ll just have to have a wait and see until more media content comes out.
more exciting times ahead! We have announced a new game – Coaster Park Tycoon – in an operations update press release. Here are the relevant details:Coaster Park Tycoon
Frontier became the acknowledged leading developer of Tycoon games for its work on the RollerCoaster Tycoon® franchise, particularly its development of 2004’s 10M unit-selling PC gameRollerCoaster Tycoon 3 which is still considered the benchmark of the Tycoon genre, more than ten years after its release in 2004.
Coaster Park Tycoon, scheduled for 2016 release on PC, is intended to raise that benchmark for ‘Tycoon’ gameplay even further by combining accessible creative features with a sophisticated simulation.
Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier Developments, said:
“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.”
