Paradox Interactive has announced that the console version of Cities: Skylines 2 has been delayed once again due to a number of "unresolved issues.”

The details:

  • Cities: Skylines 2 was released for PC in October 2023 and received widespread criticism from fans due to its numerous technical issues, which the studio warned players about ahead of time. Paradox also confirmed that the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game were being pushed back to spring 2024, before being delayed to October after "struggling to get Cities: Skylines 2 to the necessary level of optimization."

  • In an update posted to its official forums, the publisher confirmed that it will no longer be targeting an October release and will not be able to provide a new launch window for the game until at least August. “Unfortunately, we have not yet met the stability and performance targets we set for the console release,” Paradox wrote. “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.”

  • Cities: Skylines 2 has been such a disaster that back in April, Paradox announced that those who had purchased its DLC in March would be refunded. This followed an overwhelmingly negative reception to the DLC’s lack of quality and content, with Paradox admitting that it had “rushed out a DLC that should not have been published in its current form.”
