Atari announces plans to revive the RollerCoaster Tycoon brand with RollerCoaster Tycoon World, a new installment in the theme park simulation coming to Windows next year, saying this will be a full premium AAA game with no microtransactions. They show off the ups and downs of this game in a new Gamescom trailer, and here's word on what to expect:

Atari®, one of the world's most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, today announced the development of RollerCoaster Tycoon World™, a new PC version of the world-renowned RollerCoaster Tycoon® franchise, to be released in early 2015. RollerCoaster Tycoon World will be available for PC and feature a combination of fan-favorite and completely new gameplay – such as an innovative track builder, more rides than ever before, and all-new cooperative multiplayer functions in addition to classic single player modes. In advance of Gamescom, taking place August 13-17 in Cologne, Germany, fans can view the RollerCoaster Tycoon World teaser trailer for a sneak peek of the upcoming game.

With RollerCoaster Tycoon World, Atari is bringing back the incredible theme park experience to PC gamers and introducing a variety of thrilling new features. “The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise has captured the heart of gaming enthusiasts globally for close to 15 years, and we’re eager to provide the next installment of the phenomenal series to new and life-long fans,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. “Many of the new features in RollerCoaster Tycoon World were not possible a few years ago, but we have taken advantage of technological improvements to offer a wildly fun gaming experience that stays true to the storied franchise. This is the game fans have been asking for.”

Was this the one that was going to be a port of the recently released mobile title?

15 years ago, the game was ahead of it's time.

I'm not sure they'll be able to even get close to the same wow factor as the originals.

I do like how they specifically mention no microtransactions though. I would have thought this game/genre would be ripe for the nickel and diming route. Perhaps they're going to do the Sims thing with a bazillion little upgrades instead.

My favorite light management/serious coaster physics series!

Chris Sawyer could kick this games ass and do it in assembly though.

Frontier are not too shabby either, but I want them focused on the Star Citizen murder.
