Is Planet Zoo Coming To PS4?

Planet Zoo PS4

Is Planet Zoo coming to PS4? That’s the question PS4 gamers everywhere are beginning to ask after witnessing the high levels of interest from PC gamers in the latest title from the talented folk at Elite Dangerous developer Frontier Developments.

Planet Zoo PS4

Set to release on PC later this year in the fall, Planet Zoo has been described by Frontier Developments as a ‘PC exclusive’. Now, while that designation seems like a fairly done deal in regards to a potential Planet Zoo PS4 release, it’s important to remember that the British based developer has put previously PC exclusive games on PS4 before.

The aforementioned Elite Dangerous is one such example. Originally Kickstarted back in November 2012 as a PC exclusive, and then released two years later in December 2014, Elite Dangerous would go on to have full release on PS4 in July 2017 – some nearly two and half years after the original PC release.

As to a Planet Zoo PS4 release, the smart money is on it happening, but likely not for a good couple of years – and in that instance, it’ll likely be on PS5, too. So stay tuned for more on that score.

What is Planet Zoo?

Inspired by the fantastic Zoo Tycoon games, Planet Zoo has players stretching beyond the constrains of a plot of land and tasks them with quite literally building a world for all manner of wildlife to inhabit.

Very much geared with conservation in mind, every zoo that you build in Planet Zoo will contain a wide variety of animals. From hulking bears and towering elephants to playful cubs and cheeky monkeys, Planet Zoo provides players with no shortage of wildlife to fill their habitats with.

Boasting some of the most authentic looking, moving and behaving animals in any game to date, Planet Zoo’s myriad of creatures all react to each other and the level of care that they receive as one would expect – making it one of the most detailed and accurate zoo simulations on the market.

The new Planet Zoo 1.3 patch has just been released which fixes the following:
