Evil Genius 2 Revealed At E3 PC Gaming Show (VIDEO)
We currently live in an age where dormant franchises are regularly seeing a resurgence, with long-overdue sequels such as Shenmue III and a new Psychonauts game being just a few of these greatly anticipated offerings. Rebellion Developments looks to be in that mindset as well with their plans to revive 2004’s villainy-simulating Evil Genius series for a modern sequel titled Evil Genius 2.
Having announced their “evil” plans back in 2017, the game made it’s official unveiling at this year’s E3, letting loose a trailer at the PC Gaming Show. Seen below, Evil Genius 2 looks to be getting a pretty nice visual upgrade following its 15-year absence, the reveal depicting the strategic spy vs. spy gameplay of the original game. Check out the video below along with an official description from Steam.
