Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order have announced the sequel to their popular city-simulation game, Cities: Skylines. Cities: Skylines II promises to offer players the most realistic city simulation ever created, allowing them to build any kind of city they can imagine and follow its growth from a humble village to a bustling metropolis. The game offers an immersive simulation that welcomes both new and veteran players, with a deep focus on individual households, the city’s economy, and transportation system. Cities: Skylines II launches later this year on PC, Xbox Series X | S, and PlayStation 5.
Cities: Skylines II is a modern take on the city-building genre, offering players a fully-realized transport and economy system, a wealth of construction and customization options, and advanced modding capabilities. The game aims to evolve the city-building genre further, providing players with the most open-ended city-building sandbox on the planet.
Developed by Colossal Order, Cities: Skylines launched in 2015 for PC and has since expanded to numerous platforms, with dozens of DLCs and over 12 million copies sold. The accuracy and depth of its simulation has earned the respect of professional city planners, who use Cities: Skylines to solve real-world problems.
Mariina Hallikainen, CEO of Colossal Order, said, “Cities: Skylines reset the bar for city building games when it launched eight years ago, and we are incredibly proud of its impact. Now, we’ve brought the years of experience we’ve gained to take a new step forward in the city builder genre.”
Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive, said, “The Cities brand has been an important part of Paradox’s catalog of games for over a decade. With unprecedented amounts of customization and player control, Cities: Skylines II will continue to push boundaries for the city-building franchise.”
Players can visit the Cities: Skylines II website for more information and updates on the official forums, Twitter, Instagram, and Discord. More reveals and gameplay are expected in the coming months, and fans can celebrate Cities: Skylines’ eighth birthday on March 10.
