A full-blown sequel to Cities Skylines, the appropriately named Cities Skylines II has been announced for PS5. It only has a vague '2023' release window right now, but the official press release describes it as "the most realistic city simulation ever created". Quite the promise!
The original Cities Skylines was very well received, so there'll be high expectations for this follow-up. The fact that it isn't releasing on last-gen consoles might hint at the game's overall scope as well.

Odd they would release a next gen remake/remaster of the first one, to only just then announce this sequel. I’m sure it’ll ride over fans, but for PS5 people to never have purchased the first game (and buy the remaster if they redeemed it through plus) seems like a weird double dip so close between announcements…
@TheTSTGuy agree with that
I'm a sucker and will no doubt get it but it's gonna have to have a lot of the features the DLC added when it launches, or it will be a sale purchase for me. No way I'm buying a strip backed base game and a load of DLC at full price.
Definitely excited for this one. I just hope there aren't 55 DLC packs like the last game. But I'm sure that will remain the case.
Love a bit of Cities. I know it’s unlikely but it would be cool if we get some of the mods post launch. Watching my mate play on his PC its crazy how much extra customisation options he gets through downloadable mods.
Looking forward to it. I've sunk a lot of hours with the original and will probably sink more hours into the new one.
Another game that's day one on gamepass
Yes yes yes!!! There is a god! Loved cities skylines on ps4, even got the chirpnado trophy which I’m sure is quite rare? Bring it on. Loving paradox atm
@Grimwood lol. Reading this article I was wondering, why would they announce it for PS5 and not PC? Is it out on PC already? Did I miss it?
I'd like it if PushSquare, NLife, and other affiliated sites would just list all the platforms, now I have to resort to google because the article is missing information.
@Martsmall free to rent yes. I know it may sound old fashioned but here’s an idea. Go to a shop buy a disc copy, finish it and trade it back in for 20-30 notes. Win win
After picking up a new disc copy of the last game, only to find out they’d changed eligibility for a free upgrade, I’ll be giving the new game a miss.
Pretty excited about this. Hope there’s a big graphical upgrade and full mod support. No issue with DLC, most of it is cosmetic and big ones are only once a year or so.
Some of the cities that people make on YouTube are incredible.
i'll prob get it on pc , but i sunk so many hours into the first one , im pretty excited for this.
So, the whole thing isn't the actual gameplay? Or just the beginning bit. I know it's "only" a city builder, but kinda weird.
@TheTSTGuy sometimes there's a penalty for early adopteders, sometimes there's one for late adopters. Far less sympathy for the latter.
Learned my lesson with the first one and their DLC policy
@Jayphex thanks for letting me know the ps5 upgrade is free
Paradox are very well known for selling a rather modest base game that they eventually flesh out after several years of DLC. It never really feels like a complete experience until multiple updates down the line.
@Mikey856 oh im sorry I always thought that the developer was not forced to put the game on GP and wasnt given anything ...I'll rush and pay more money so the likes of mike Ashley can add more money to his billions when they overcharge some kids for a second hand game when I trade it In .... Save the billionaires thier a dying breed !!!!!
@Dudditz09 That's exactly what's happening. They'll release base cities skyline 2 with a lot less feature than cities skyline remaster with DLC, enticing players who may enjoy cities 2 to purchase cities 1 on their PS5. Hence why they released remaster so close to cities 2.
@Martsmall what a stupid comment. most devs are not billionaires and need supporting properly for their work. Have you seen software sales on Xbox bro. 2 million copies of infinite got sold, Xbox PREMIERE title. Embarrassing, but let them create their Netflix for gaming. I’ll stick to OWNING my games thanks
@Mikey856 Devs get paid for games going on GP just like they do going on ps plus etc , and the services that you sell the games to like game etc etc don't give the Devs ANYTHING so for some one saying Devs need their money etc etc by taking your games to these places you are actually making sure they don't get paid ...you buy it once it can b passed and sold to other ppl ,the game shops make money ( Rip off prices) while the Devs make zero apart from the first time its sold....you are actually part of the problem ,at least with game pass they can get paid for the more players unlike that disc you sell to the game shop
And I never said Devs were billionaires but the person I mentioned is 0
mike Ashley who owns the game group that you sell.the games to that don't give the Devs a penny
@Cutmastavictory only if you’ve bought the game digitally.
@Martsmall I’m sorry I’m part of the problem for going out and buying a game at rrp and being able to call that item MINE?. I think you need give your head a wobble son cus you own nothing 😂😂😂😂.. and you go on about Mike Ashley… how many people are YOU providing with employment 🤦🏻♂️
@Mikey856 and yet again someone thinks they knew other ppl/and aren't reading ,I don't have a problem with owning a game so plz feel free to read again or get a adult to explain it to you ...I own over 800 games excluding GP /gold etc etc I give the Devs my money ...carry on selling that game that the Devs get paid once and can carry on selling to say 20 /40 other ppl I'm sure the Devs happy they get paid once , yes they do employ ppl so boss can take money from the Devs for work they haven't done on the game and to the fat cats
@Martsmall @Martsmall ahhhh so you’re a commie… got ya 👌
@Mikey856 no but I'm also not a hypocrite ...rental services are bad the devs need money ....ill buy a game full price what a hero I am then post about ppl using a rental service ...then sell it so the Devs will never see a penny no matter how many owners that game has over the years .... but remember the Devs need support rental services are bad !!!! Wow your amazing
@Martsmall calm down Corbyn! You’ve retired
