Cities: Skylines 2 DLC Faces Delay for Crucial Fixes in Base Game
Cities: Skylines 2 DLC, part of the Ultimate Edition, faces a delay to prioritize game improvements. The game’s launch last month encountered numerous bugs and performance issues, particularly on PC. This issue has now prompted Colossal Order to shift its focus to optimizing the base game.
CEO Mariina Hallikainen explained, “Once the PC version is where we want it to be, we will be focusing on the console release and DLC content.” While committed to delivering the promised DLC, the studio acknowledges it won’t adhere to the original schedule.
The Beach Properties Asset Pack, initially set for this year, now targets a Q1 2024 release. Concurrently, the Creator Packs (Modern Architecture and Urban Promenades), originally slated for early 2024, are now anticipated in Q2 of next year.
Colossal Order’s decision emphasizes the importance of ensuring the base game’s stability before introducing additional content. Hallikainen reassured fans, stating, “I apologize for the delay, but we must not rush new content out before the base is ready for it.” Updates on Content Creator Packs and Radio Stations are expected later.
This approach aligns with the studio’s commitment to delivering a polished and enjoyable experience to players. As the team focuses on resolving issues, gamers can anticipate a more robust Cities: Skylines 2 experience with the eventual arrival of the delayed DLC content. Stay tuned for further announcements as the developers fine-tune and enhance the game.
