During the show, Jeff Goldblum – star of multiple Jurassic Park films including the original – introduced a brand new trailer for the upcoming game, which will be a sequel to the original 2018 game.
He will be reprising his role as Ian Malcolm, a character from both the films and the original Jurassic World Evolution.
The game revolves around placing players in charge of their own Jurassic World.
In the original, players had to “Bioengineer dinosaurs that think, feel and react intelligently to the world around them and face threats posed by espionage, breakouts and devastating tropical storms.”

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is planned for a 2021 release.
