Stellaris: Federations, the sci-fi grand strategy's upcoming diplomacy-focused expansion, has been delayed to early 2020, Paradox announced.
Revealed during PDXCON 2019, Stellaris: Federations aims to give players more options when dealing with their federations, opening up the possibility of uniting empires in one Galactic Community and also adding the Juggernaut, a massive mobile repair base.
Stellaris: Federations Delayed To Early 2020
"During PDXCON 2019 we said that we would give more information on the expansion later during the year – and today we want to share some news that Federations is targeted for release in early 2020.", Game Director Daniel Moregård said in a post on the Paradox forums.
"Although we understand that some of you might be disappointed that Federations will not be released in December, we want you to know that we are taking more time to make sure that the next update is going to be amazing.", he continued.
The extra time will also be used to improve areas like performance and AI, which will be the sole focus of certain team members.
"It is very important to us that 2.6 does not compound any of the current issues with the game, and that we can take the time we need to address some of the issues remaining from 2.2. It’s important to remember, however, that working on these kinds of issues is not a sprint, but a marathon – it's something that is constantly being worked on over longer periods of time."
Stellaris: Federations is now scheduled to launch at some point early next year.
