June 18, 2019 Frontier expects to report a massive jump in annual revenue thanks to Jurassic World Evolution sales.
Jurassic World Evolution has been a major hit for Frontier Developments, and it’s still going strong thanks to continued free updates and regular DLC releases (including today’s new Claire’s Sanctuary expansion). Because of that success, Frontier has released a statement to investors, telling them to expect a massive increase in the company’s annual revenue.
“Frontier expects to report record annual revenue of approximately £89 million for FY19, which is more than two and a half times the previous financial year,” the company says in a statement (via GamesIndustry.biz). Frontier’s fiscal year ends on May 31, so these projections account for revenue from June 2018 through May 2019 – the company is letting investors know what to expect ahead of the full results report in September. Last year’s financial report recorded £34.2 million.
“This substantial growth in revenue reflects the success of Jurassic World Evolution, Frontier’s third self-published title, which launched in June 2018, combined with the ongoing performance of Frontier’s first two self-published titles, Elite Dangerous (2014) and Planet Coaster (2016), which each benefitted from Frontier’s strategy of supporting and nurturing existing titles.”
