Tropico 6 has been delayed again. Last scheduled to release later this month, the banana republic simulator will now launch in late March, publisher Kalypso has announced.
"After going through rigorous in-house testing and taking on board all the feedback collected from the closed beta and the wider Tropico community, Tropico 6 is shaping up to be a great game. However, great is not enough when it comes to El Presidente.", the publisher said in a press release.
The PC, Mac and Linux versions of Tropico 6 will launch on March 29 "in order to allow sufficient time to implement as much of the fans’ feedback as possible and work on final balancing and polishing to raise the level of quality expected from this flagship brand to what the Tropico fans and community deserve.".
As a result of this delay, anyone who pre-orders Tropico 6 by 18:00 GMT/19:00 CET on January 10 will receive the game's first major DLC for free. The DLC is scheduled to release sometime in Q2 2019. Kalypso Media Group Owner and Managing Director Simon Hellwig has also posted an open letter addressing the delay over on the Kalypso Media blog.
Developed by Limbic Entertainment, Tropico 6 tasks players with building their tropical dictatorial states on large archipelagos, having them manage multiple islands at one time. Agents can be sent to steal world wonders and monuments, election speeches make a comeback and infrastructure and transportation get a shot in the arm with new available options such as bridges, tunnels and aerial cable cars.
