An Update On Evil Genius 2: World Domination

Dear Evil Genius Community,

We hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and well.

Over the last five months or so, Rebellion has been working hard from the safety of our homes. As of now we’re only just beginning to welcome a handful of our staff back into our studios.

It’s been a challenging time. We tried to ensure there wouldn’t be a disturbance to our capacity and plans, but in such unexpected circumstances we’ve had to make some changes.

Today we’re announcing that Evil Genius 2: World Domination will launch in the first half of 2021.

We had originally planned for Evil Genius 2 to launch this year. However, the impact of COVID-19, transitioning from the studio to our homes and adapting to new ways of working all contributed to this difficult decision.

We want to deliver a sequel that will do justice to the franchise and be loved and played by the Evil Genius community for years to come, just like the original. And while we know many of you will be disappointed to wait a little longer, launching next year affords us the time to do precisely that.

One of the things we most prize about Rebellion is our independence, which allows us the freedom to do what’s right for our games and our staff. That’s what we’re doing for Evil Genius 2. We hope you understand our decision.

We’ll announce a final release date as soon as we can. Expect an update sooner rather than later.

Here on the Development Blog, normal service will resume in two weeks’ time. We’re going to be to showing you much, much more of Evil Genius 2 over the coming months, as well as sharing some information on the upcoming closed beta. We can’t wait to see what you think.

Thank you as ever for your support and your trust. 

Chris and Jason Kingsley, Rebellion Co-Founders
