Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier was announced today, which seems like something we should have had by now, but oddly enough have not, considering how popular the revival of the movie franchise has been. This release is coming from Andy Serkis’ own Imaginarium Studios in a partnership with FoxNext Games.
Releasing later this year, it’s billed as a “narrative adventure game” set between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the recently released War for the Planet of the Apes.
