Earlier today, the PEGI Rating System released a new rating for a brand new entry in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. The title of the game, RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride, has been given an age rating of 3, which is fairly unsurprising given how non-controversial the titles are.
Alongside the release of the rating, a recent investors briefing from Atari (via Reddit) revealed that the game will also be coming to consoles in the first half of 2018. While no concrete release information has been revealed yet, Atari did reveal that a virtual reality module would be coming to the console versions of the game, meaning that PlayStation VR owners will be able to craft some coasters in virtual reality. For more on the upcoming title, read a brief description of the game from Atari:
Experience the thrill of your life with a new roller coaster manufacturer offering an entirely immersive attraction thanks to a virtual reality module for the first time in the series. Expected release in the first half of 2018.
