“Evil Genius 2” Announced at the PC Gaming Show at E3

Rebellion has given Evil Genius 2 its reveal trailer at the PC Gaming Show. Evil Genius 2 was announced as one of Rebellion’s three brand new games, coming to E3 this year. EG2 joins Sniper Elite VR as the two games we knew about going into the PC Gaming Show conference this morning.

EG2 is a direct sequel to the original game, but this time you’ve got some friends to help you out. Granted, things will have changed quite a bit since it has been fourteen years since the original game. So you should go in expecting some modern gaming conveniences.Rebellion even clarified, “We’d like to make this super-duper clear — this isn’t a remaster. Evil Genius 2 will be a fully-fledged sequel and it won’t be free-to-play.”

That said, the game will launch on Steam. We’re not sure when that will be, but we’ll keep you posted when that news dropped. So keep an eye out.

You can check out the E3 Reveal trailer below.

Evil Genius is back, and this time you have a lot of help.
