The city builder Cities: Skylines II still has its problems and that is having an effect. According to a new roadmap, the promised additional content will now come later.
Cities: Skylines II had quite a belly flop at launch after the game was plagued by primarily technical problems. Because of this, it is known that the console release has already been pushed back.
Now developer Colossal Order is reporting further delays. As part of a new dev blog, the developers confirmed that the additional content from the Expansion Pass will come into the game some time later. The reason for this is of course that the developers want to continue working on the performance of the game and the mod editor also has a higher priority.
Improving performance is currently high on the to-do list. The aim is to fix further GPU problems and improve CPU performance so that stuttering and slow simulation come to an end. There are also over a hundred known bugs on the list that require a little more effort to fix. The map editor is currently being examined by a beta group and should be further optimized.
As soon as the PC version of the game is at the level that the developers want to achieve, the DLC content and the console launch begin. According to an updated roadmap, the Beach Properties Asset Pack, like the Deluxe Radio Station, is now scheduled to be released in the first quarter. The Creator Packs Modern Architecture and Urban Promenades will follow in the second quarter, as will the Soft Rock Radio Station. The Bridges & Ports expansion and another radio station are also planned for this period.
So patience is still required.
