Development History / Background:

Planned as a sequel to Jumpgate: The Reconstruction Initiative (2001), work on Jumpgate Evolution started in 2007 and was supposed to be completed by June 2009. The game made an appearance at E3 in 2009 and again in 2010 after its release was delayed.

On February 2011, developer NetDevil laid off all staff besides its LEGO Universe team. No formal announcement regarding Jumpgate Evolution was made at the time, but by July 2012 the official site had gone dark.

Jumpgate Evolution was never released and so the code was never made available to emulate. Fortunately, there are active private servers for the original Jumpgate: The Reconstruction Initiative.
