Back in the late 1990s, there was one video game franchise that really popped up and formed a following, Turok. The video game series went on to see a number of title releases on the Nintendo 64 with the most recent standalone installment being Turok for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Since then the latest releases set for the franchise, as it stands right now, are the remastered editions from Night Dive.
Last year, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, the first installment of the Turok video game franchise, was remastered and released on the PC platform from development studio Night Dive. During that time it was known that the developers were also working on a Turok 2: Seeds of Evil remaster.
Since the announcement of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and the release of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, we’ve been in the dark as to the progress of the sequel remastering. Today, we’re finally getting some slight new updates on the upcoming remastered edition of Turok 2, but unfortunately, we’re still clueless on when the title will be releasing.
The news came from the Steam Community hub of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Within the post, the development studio alerts fans that the video game is still in the works, but due to the size of sequel and IP owners, being transparent of the game development progress can be difficult.
“So as many of you may have guessed, working on the rights to these classic titles can be tricky and sometimes contractual obligations prevents the transparency we’ve enjoyed on some of our other titles which are why updates have been mysteriously absent.
We’re well aware of the demand for Turok 2 and it is still in development…in fact we started development just shortly after the launch of the first Turok. Turok 2 is a bigger game, more enemies, more weapons, more locations and most importantly…Turok 2 had Multiplayer.
In our quest to bring you the most authentic experience at the highest quality level available we’ve decided to give Turok 2 the love it deserves and release the game “when it’s done” which is why all we’ve been able to say is this:
Turok 2 is coming!
Thank you for your continued support and patience, we know you’re going to love it”
At the very least we know that the remaster is currently being developed, though we wouldn’t mind knowing a launch window for the video game. We’ll, of course, keep you updated on the very latest.
