Jurassic World: Alive will be Ludia Studios third game in this franchise following Jurassic Park Builder and Jurassic World: The Game. The studio was founded in 2007 and focussed on licensed franchise games for most of its time. They’ve developed content on console and mobile for IPs ranging from tv shows such as “The Price is Right” and “Family Feud” to a successful partnership with Universal and rights to develop games for any of their movie franchises, which include Jurassic World and Fast and the Furious.
Ludia Studios changed focus to free-to-play games in 2011, both Jurassic titles have been well received and they’ve made high profile quality mobile content for a strong minute. It follows on then that we can all look forward to some genuinely fun AR dino-hunting soon, for free, with the occasional voluntary micro-transaction to ensure that my velociraptor pack will definitely take out your genetically enhanced monstrosity!
