Tropico 6 Delayed Less Than a Month Before Intended Launch

Tropico 6

Tropico 6 has suffered a sudden, last minute delay and will now release on March 29, 2019.

Publisher Kalypso Media’s owner and managing director, Simon Hellwig, issued a statement explaining the delay. Hellwig cites dissatisfaction with the quality of the project as the primary factor in the delay.

“Over the holidays, I have played Tropico 6 for many hours and really liked what I saw. But, in my humble opinion, it is not enough to like a game – I want to love it! And Tropico 6 is good, but not very good, or outstanding. Yet.”

As a bit of an apology for the delay, any users who pre-order the game on the Kalypso Shop will receive the game’s first DLC for free.

The sixth entry in the simulation series launches March 29, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Time will tell if the reschedule will be worth the wait, so keep up with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube for more Tropico updates.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
