The Console Release of Cities Skylines II Has Suffered Another Delay


Publisher Paradox Interactive has confirmed that the console release of its popular City builder, Cities Skylines II has suffered another delay.

The game initially launched on PC in October of 2023 ( and is available to play on GeForce NOW) however the console release was due to follow in Spring 2024, this was then moved to October 2024 but it has now been confirmed that the console version of the game has been delayed again with no new release date provided as of yet.

A post on the official Paradox Forums states:

Dear Console Players,
We wanted to update you on the console release schedule. Unfortunately, we have not yet met the stability and performance targets we set for the console release. Without a Release Candidate (RC), we are now unable to meet an October release window.

While we are making slow but steady progress, there are still unresolved issues impacting the game in ways that harm the player experience we want to deliver. We expect to receive a new RC, which will undergo a thorough review in August. This evaluation will determine whether we can begin the submission process and provide a solid release date, or if further issues need to be addressed.

We understand this is disappointing, and it’s not what we had hoped for either. However, we are committed to keeping you informed throughout this development process, even if the updates aren’t always what we’d like.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

As disappointing as a game delay is, we certainly feel that is better to take the extra time needed to deliver a more polished product at launch!
