Since the game first launched back in 2015, Cities Skylines has become a staple in the simulation and city builder genres. The latest entry to the franchise made its way onto PC in October 2023, but not without issues. Players complained about performance problems and their builds being riddled with bugs, as well as mod support not being present at launch. Those on Xbox and PlayStation are yet to see what Cities Skylines 2 has to offer since the console release was delayed.
The latest update on the console version was issued by Paradox Interactive on January 22, 2024. They say that “work on the console versions is ongoing” and the team are “not committing to any timelines as there are too many unknowns at this time.”
When will Cities Skylines 2 release on Xbox and PlayStation?
Cities Skylines 2 is expected to hit Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 storefronts in the spring of 2024. A specific release date hasn’t yet been announced, but console users are will be treated to an optimised experience with enhanced graphics.
As for Nintendo Switch owners, they won’t get to experience the world of Cities Skylines 2. This is simply due to the Switch being a less powerful console, meaning it’s not able to run the game at a sufficient level. Perhaps the rumoured release of the Switch 2 will change that and allow handheld users to build their legacy from the ground up.
