Tropico 5 on PS4 will now launch in 2015

Those hoping to play island management and dictatorship simulator Tropico 5 on PlayStation 4 will have to wait a bit longer, as this version of the game has been delayed into next year, publisher Kalypso Media announced today.

Tropico 5 launched for Windows PC in May and today for Linux and Mac. An Xbox 360 version is slated to launch on Nov. 11, but the PS4 version — announced earlier this year in January — needs more development time, according to Kalypso. The projected release date is now sometime during the first quarter of 2015.

"We want to give PlayStation owners the best possible Tropico experience so we decided to give Tropico 5 a little more time in the final stages of development," a representative for the company told Polygon. "With this in mind we have moved the release until early in Q1 2015."

Those who purchase the later-launching PS4 or Xbox 360 versions will receive for free the game's first "micro" DLC pack, "The Big Cheese," which allows players to cultivate their own brand of artisanal cheese.
