There’s been a lot of speculation lately about a potential Planet Zoo game coming to the Xbox One. While no official announcement has been made, there is plenty of evidence that suggests this could be true. Let’s take a look at some of the clues that are pointing in that direction.
What is Planet Zoo?
Planet Zoo is a zoo management game developed by Frontier Developments. The game was released on PC in November of 2019, and it’s since been hinted that a console port may be in the works. There are no official announcements yet, but given the evidence that’s been piling up, it seems likely that an Xbox One version of Planet Zoo is coming soon.
What are the clues?
The first clue is that, in February of 2020, Frontier Developments announced that they had partnered with Microsoft to bring their games to Xbox Game Pass. This was a big deal because it meant that players would be able to access a whole bunch of Frontier’s titles, including Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous, for a monthly subscription fee.
If Frontier was planning on releasing Planet Zoo on Xbox One, it would make sense for them to wait until after the game was available on Game Pass. That way, more people would be aware of the game and would be more likely to give it a try.
Another clue that points to an Xbox One release is the fact that there are already a few planet zoo related achievements listed on the Xbox website. These achievements are usually added by developers in preparation for a game’s release, so it’s likely that they were added in anticipation of an Xbox One port.
What platforms is Planet Zoo available on?
Planet Zoo is currently available on the PC and Mac. A console release is planned for later in the year.
That’s all the evidence we have so far, but it’s looking more and more likely that Planet Zoo is coming to Xbox One. We’ll be sure to update this post if any new information comes to light. In the meantime, why not check out the game on PC or Mac? It’s a lot of fun!
