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.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
