Developers from independent Australian studio Halfbrick (Fruit Ninja, Raskulls) have revealed the exact release date and target platform for Jetpack Joyride 2, the sequel to their popular mobile arcade game.
Recall that Jetpack Joyride 2 launched in some countries in the spring of 2021, but a year later the game was withdrawn from the App Store and Play Store. At the time, Halfbrick said the project had reached a “closed development phase” and would spend an indefinite period there.
Jetpack Joyride 2 will only be available on Apple Arcade
As it became known, at the exit from the “closed development phase”, Jetpack Joyride 2 turned out to be an iOS exclusive (in particular, the Apple Arcade subscription service). The release will take place on August 19th.

Apple Inc. provides access to Apple Arcade, a video game subscription service. On devices running iOS 13, tvOS 13, iPadOS 13, and macOS Catalina or later; it’s accessed via a dedicated tab of the App Store. On September 19, 2019, the program debuted.
One of the features is that it provides uninterrupted experiences; by excluding features that many consider to be essentials of well-liked, free-to-play mobile games, such as in-app purchases and ads.
Users can play the games offline and without interruptions; because all games on the site are free of ads, in-app purchases, data tracking procedures, and always-on DRM. Through family sharing, subscribers can grant access to up to five more people, and the service is also available as part of the Apple One package. A free one-month trial is available for both solo subscriptions and the Apple One package; and users can terminate both of them at any time.
