In 2016 Perfect World Entertainment were in development on a new video game titled Jurassic World Survivor, which was rumoured to take place immediately after the events in Jurassic World. The game was described as an open world third person survival game taking place on Isla Nublar. However, it wasn’t long before we learned that the game had ceased development.

This certainly is nothing new to Jurassic fans who are all too familiar with video game cancellations, but don’t get too sad just yet. Universal Pictures have now registered a new trademark – Jurassic World Aftermath, which is also for a video game. The application was filed on 14th April and appears to be strikingly similar to the trademark for Survivor.
The description provided to the USPTO for JURASSIC WORLD AFTERMATH is Recorded interactive multi-media software for playing games; downloadable interactive multi-media software for playing games; downloadable software in the nature of a mobile application for playing games and accessing entertainment content for use with computers, portable handheld digital electronic communication devices, mobile devices, wired and wireless communication devices, and video game consoles; recorded computer game software for wireless and electronic mobile devices, mobile phones, hand-held electronic devices, and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software for wireless and electronic mobile devices, mobile phones, hand-held electronic devices, and video game consoles; computer game discs; video game discs; wireless communication devices and wireless communication systems comprised of computer hardware and recorded software for the transmission of audio, voice, and images; recorded computer virtual reality game software; downloadable virtual reality game software.
We’re going to hazard a guess that Aftermath is what Survivor has become, and that the game will follow a similar story to what we came to learn about it’s predecessor. As the previous developer of ‘Survivor’ Cryptic Studios Seattle has closed, we’re unsure how much content from that game can be utilized, but logically speaking they may be picking up from where Cryptic left off. No word on a developer at this point, but word is some well known studios were exploring the Jurassic IP over the last year or so.
The domain name JurassicWorldAftermath.com was also registered on 14th April, the same day as the trademark, however the owner of this domain cannot be verified at this time.
We know very little about the game, but what we came to learn about Jurassic World Survivor was that it was an open world third person survival game that takes place on Isla Nublar, shortly after the events in Jurassic World. The game centered around player-created characters that have to survive the subsequent carnage that the Indominus Rex created on the island.
The story may have changed and this may be a completely different game, but the title alone leads us to believe this video game will indeed take place after the events seen in Jurassic World.
