Cities: Skylines 2 players waiting for the extra content that is supposed to be coming to the game in the Expansion Pass are going to be waiting a little longer for said content. Colossal Order announced today that it is delaying some of the Expansion Pass DLC in order to continue to polish the base game up and squash its performance issues. With that in mind, the first Asset Pack and the Creator Packs have been pushed back a season. The game’s first expansion is still on track for mid-2024.
Colossal Order CEO Mariina Hallikainen announced the delay of Cities: Skyline 2 Expansion Pass content and the reasoning for it in a recent developer diary post. Mostly, the matter comes down to continuing work on the base game and making improvements to its performance.
Hallikainen stressed that the team wanted to make sure the base game is in satisfactory condition before they work on DLC:
And so the new schedule for Cities: Skylines Expansion Pass DLC is as follows:
- Asset Pack release - Q1 2024 (initially planned for Q4 2023)
- Creator Packs - Q2 2024 (initially planned for Q1 2024)
- Medium Expansion - Q2 2024 (no change)
With these changes in place, we’ll be on the lookout for news regarding Cities: Skylines 2 Expansion Pass release dates. In the meantime, if you need any help with your cities, be sure to head over to our Cities: Skylines 2 topic for the latest patch notes and guides.
