A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Frontier Developments has excellent sims with Planet Coaster and Jurassic Park: Evolution, and now it’s creating a modern zoo with Planet Zoo. Frontier made the announcement today during the PC Gaming Show during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

You make and manage a zoo in this new game from the makers of Elite Dangerous.

In the trailer, we saw animals such as hippos (and yes, one pooped). You’ll manage the animals and exhibits along with other ways to bring people into your zoo.


GamesBeat's creed when covering the game industry is "where passion meets business." What does this mean? We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. How will you do that? Membership includes access to:
  • Newsletters, such as DeanBeat
  • The wonderful, educational, and fun speakers at our events
  • Networking opportunities
  • Special members-only interviews, chats, and "open office" events with GamesBeat staff
  • Chatting with community members, GamesBeat staff, and other guests in our Discord
  • And maybe even a fun prize or two
  • Introductions to like-minded parties
