Prévu initialement l’année dernière, puis pour la fin de ce mois de janvier, voici que le sixième volet de la série Tropico voit sa sortie reportée au 29 mars prochain. La raison étant que les développeurs ont besoin de plus de temps pour peaufiner le jeu ainsi qu’y ajouter les suggestions des fans de la série (cf. voir aussi cette lettre ouverte à ce propos).
Par ailleurs une nouvelle version de Tropico est arrivée elle le mois dernier pour les iPad, comme le montre la courte bande-annonce ci-dessus, une déclinaison étant prévue cette année pour les joueurs sur iPhone.
Pour plus d’informations sur Tropico 6, dont la sortie est aussi prévue sur consoles a priori durant l’été prochain, voyez le site officiel, cette page sur iTunes et cette fiche sur Steam.

Tropico 6 PC Moves to 29th March 2019 Release
Kalypso Media is best known as a publisher of strategy and simulation games, with the critically acclaimed Tropico series as the company’s flagship brand. 2019 sees the launch of the latest instalment in this beloved series, with the highly-anticipated Tropico 6 scheduled to release on PC and consoles.
After going through rigorous in-house testing and taking on board all the feedback collected from the closed beta and the wider Tropico community, Tropico 6 is shaping up to be a great game. However, great is not enough when it comes to El Presidente. As always, Kalypso is striving to deliver an outstanding gameplay experience to make Tropico 6 the best in the series to date, and as such has taken the difficult decision to move the release of the PC, MAC and Linux versions to 29th March in order to allow sufficient time to implement as much of the fans’ feedback as possible and work on final balancing and polishing to raise the level of quality expected from this flagship brand to what the Tropico fans and community deserve.
Simon Hellwig, owner and managing director of Kalypso Media, has prepared an open-letter to the Tropico community and shared it through the company’s forums and social channels.
As a thank you to the loyal Tropico fans who have supported us through the development of the game, we will be offering the first major Tropico 6 DLC free of charge to anyone who has pre-ordered the game by 18:00 GMT / 19:00 CET on 10th January. The additional content will automatically be added to qualifying players’ game upon release in Q2 2019.
Tropico 6 is available to pre-order now via the Kalypso Shop and other digital platforms as either the standard version (with instant access to the closed beta) or as a special El Prez Edition, including two tourist outfits for your Presidente, a flamingo pond for your customizable palace, digital soundtrack, digital calendar and instant beta access.
