Jetpack Joyride 2 to be Apple Arcade exclusive, launches this month. On August 19, the follow-up to Jetpack Joyride will be made available only to Apple Arcade subscribers.
One of the most well-known iOS games when it came out in 2011 was Jetpack Joyride. Hard Brick Studios, the same company that created Fruit Ninja, is now developing Jetpack Joyride 2, which will only be accessible via Apple Arcade. Apple Arcade is a premium video game subscription service, similar to Google Play Pass, that omits in-app purchases and allows customers to play games without commercials. The service added the initial iteration of Jetpack Joyride in June of this year.
You may now be asking why Jetpack Joyride 2 isn’t now accessible on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. It’s true that the game’s creators soft-launched it in March of last year, but they later took it down, claiming it had “entered a new closed phase of development for an indeterminate duration.”

The fact that the creators have left the fundamental gameplay intact will please those who are eager to play the sequel. Instead, Jetpack Joyride 2 will expand upon the first game and provide a narratively focused experience in addition to a new game mode.
In case you didn’t even know, Jetpack Joyride is a side-scrolling shooter that players must navigate while collecting cash and dodging hazards. Apple posted a trailer and some in-game pictures on the game’s App Store website if you’re interested in seeing what the sequel looks like.
Having said that, Jetpack Joyride 2 will be made exclusively accessible to Apple Arcade subscribers on August 19 of this year. You might want to take in the original title and warm up your jetpack till then.
