When Atari announced RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 would be coming to mobile platforms in the Spring, there wasn’t much of a positive reaction from fans of the franchise. The mobile game will have in-app purchases of coins that will hurry the wait timer, and everything else that most gamers dread in a mobile title. Atari let fans know via Twitter that a PC version was also in the works, but people weren’t thrilled with the news largely because they assumed it would just be a port of the mobile game.
Atari now tells DigitalSpy that the PC version of RollerCoaster Tycoon will be a “completely different game.” How different? Atari’s director of marketing Anthony Chien had no details, but he acknowledged that they are aware of the demand for a new RollerCoaster Tycoon PC game.
“There’s a lot of diehard RC fans that want a PC experience, they want all different sorts of things.”
“It’s trying to deliver as much as we can. First is the mobile version, then it’s the PC experience. I think a lot of people are vocal about wanting to see the PC version first before the mobile, but our strategy is mobile first.”
Pshaw to your fears! They’re totally going to deliver an awesome PC experience, right?
