Fansite JurassicWorld.org has all the details, which stem from online resumes and artists' reels. After their report went up, much of the material was taken down. However the image of Pratt was captured by Kotaku, while others are still available to see on NeoGAF. More are available in the image gallery above.

The game was apparently going to run on the Unreal Engine 4 and was reportedly in development as a digital-only game for Steam, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network with a budget price point.

"I got to see some screenshots of Cryptic Studios' newest game, which was based on Jurassic World," someone said on Reddit back in May. "It was a third-person game where the player controlled Chris Pratt's character. Several dinosaurs from the series were going to be in it including: Gallimimus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Spinosaurus and Baryonyx.

"Not quite sure what you would have done in the game other than it being described as being similar to H1Z1. The game looked quite good and was nearly finished as well," the person added.

Jurassic World was released in June 2015 and was a massive success, becoming the third biggest movie of all time, behind only Avatar and Titanic. At least two more movies are planned.

Although Cryptic's game never made it out, Warner Bros. released Lego Jurassic World, while a mobile game based on the movie also came out.
