[Update #2]: Evil Genius 2's newest preview shows off Red Ivan's take on world domination.

[Update]: Evil Genius 2 has been pushed back to 2021, with no concrete release date set just yet.

Much like its predecessor, Evil Genius 2 is a highly satirical simulator about trying to take over the world through a variety of dastardly means. In order words, you'll be spending a lot of your time creating the perfect evil lair, recruiting and training a whole host of henchmen to do your dirtywork, dispatching any pesky secret agent that comes a bit too close, and as is tradition, building the most elaborate and impressive doomsday weapon the world has ever seen.

If you're curious what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, as well as what sort of features Evil Genius 2 is adding on top of the original formula, you should check out the newly posted developer preview. Have a gander, it's a rather informative one:

While no release date has been given just yet, you can expect Evil Genius 2 to arrive in 2020 for PC. You can learn a little bit more about it, as well as keep an eye on any future developer updates, over at the Evil Genius website.

And if you're curious about the actual moment-to-moment gameplay, I'll leave you with one of the earlier trailers. Enjoy!
