The lights are on
Microsoft announced that the next entry in the Zoo Tycoon series is coming exclusively to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As you can see in the trailer, players will have a chance to get up close and personal with their animals.
The zoo-management sim lets players build and maintain their zoo, ensuring that the business is profitable. Of course, animal welfare is critical as well, and players have to feed and play with their animals to keep them happy. The game is due out this year on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

THE ONE GAME I BEEN WAITING FOR ALL THIS TIME! GOTY!!!!
As childish as this game sounds, I was a HUGE fan of this series for PC when I was younger, and I'm looking forward to it!
I'm just going assume that it will also require the affront to my existence that is Kinect. Hyperbole aside, the decision to keep this title off PCs is flummoxing.
While Zoo Tycoon isn't exactly a masterpiece (although the dinosaur pack was great) Microsoft is doing a really good job with exclusives. Probably the best job I've ever seen at an E3.
Wow, I did not see this coming.. I might have to get an Xbox One for just this reason. Touché Microsoft.. touché, indeed.. IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU FINALLY GETTING SOME GOOD EXCLUSIVES FOR A CHANGE.
Not going to work. As the number two game that turned me into a gamer, you might think I would be excited. I am not. The decision to go console with any kind of game that is simulation or strategy invariably results in badness.
Sounds more like Kinectimals than Zoo Tycoon to me. I got so excited at the idea of this series being brought back. I'd love a return of this series to PC.
Man, this is so nostalgic... But this kind of game would be better on pc
Oh ***, this is what I've been waiting for to get a next gen console.
Well, we knew this would probably release eventually. Why not now, eh?
I used to play the Zoo Tycoon games as a kid, this new installment should certainly be a trip of nostalgia. I eagerly await its release!
Well, thats a game. Im sure tycoon fans will love it.
So can I put the lions and elephants together and see a brawl? No... Well Ill keep playing Jurassic Park Operation Genesis on the first xbox.
Can we get the dinosaur one two? PLEASE!
