Cities Skylines 2 potential release date and what we know so far – does it even exist?
The best PC city builder ever could have a sequel in the pipeline, let's see what we know so far
Cities Skylines was a monster hit when it was released back in 2015 – yes that far back and has seen quite a bit of DLC arrive to keep things fresh. Surely it is due a sequel though having performed so well the first time out. Well, rumors and murmurs abound that we will indeed see a Cities Skylines 2, but with nothing concrete as yet let’s have a look at why so many people think it may be on its way.
Cities Skylines 2 release date
Well with no clear news that Cities Skylines 2 is even in development, things started to heat up in a data leak from Nvidia which suggested that the 15th February 2022 could be a date of some significance.
Rumors of development, even though unconfirmed have been around for a considerable period of time, so while it is possible February may have some bearing, there is surely no chance we will get anything close to a finished game then.
Early access? Maybe. It’s unlikely to be in the Nvidia files if it’s just a press release. If all is quiet come February it also could have slipped. Either way, it’s a strange find if the project doesn’t exist in the first place.
With Cities Skylines development having slowed down over the last year or two it is not unrealistic to think that the devs could have been working on a sequel, although there is a limit to the need to keep it quiet for quite so long.
Either way, if and when the game is confined, this page will be updated the minute the information lands.
Cities Skylines 2 improvements
The fanbase is pretty vociferous on the kinds of things that could be improved, but when compared to the failure that was the last version of Sim City it was always clear that Skylines had got a lot of things right from the beginning. Patches and quality DLC all helped, alongside a willing community to turn a good game into a great one.
So besides more up-to-date graphics and better movement around the map what would you like to see in any potential franchise, leave a comment below as to how you would improve things.
