[Update]: Evil Genius 2 has now been unleashed, and so far it seems like a faithful adaptation of the original.

After being remarkably coy with the release date for quite a few months now, Rebellion has finally revealed when we'll be able to get our hands on Evil Genius 2! Best of all, it won't even be a long wait as you can expect to see Evil Genius 2 on Steam this March 30, 2021.

As the name would imply, Evil Genius 2 will have you try to take over the world through a variety of dastardly means. You'll need to construct the perfect evil lair, hire and train an army of henchmen, deal with the constant incursions from the forces of justice, and as is tradition, create the ultimate and completely impractical doomsday weapon to show the world who's boss!

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this nonsense looks like in actual gameplay through the recently posted trailer. Have a peek:
