It was rumored back in June that Cryptic Studios Seattle was working on an open world Jurassic World tie-in game when it was shut down. It seems that this was true as renders and walk cycles from the project have appeared online (thanks JurassicWorld.org).
The rumor originally appeared on Reddit and the person who started it got to see the game and described it as follows:
“I got to see some screenshots of Cryptic Studio’s newest game, which was based on Jurassic World. It was a 3rd person game where the player controlled Chris Pratt’s character. Several dinosaurs from the series were going to be in it including: Gallimimus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Spinosaurus and Baryonyx.
Not quite sure what you would have done in the game other than it being described as being similar to ‘H1Z1.’ Early Access on Steam would have come out soon but that’s all the info I know.”
Now, demo footage that shows various walk cycles of dinosaurs and its main character, have been unearthed on the Vimeo channels of ex-Cryptic Studio artists.
The game would have been released for Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live. So, yeah, it would have been a digital-only title, and it would have cost between $19.99 – $39.99.
