Tropico 6 from developer Limbic Entertainment and publisher Kalypso Media now has a release date announced for January 25th, 2019.

I mentioned in my last article, how Linux was missing from the recent press material. This time around, it's being very clearly mentioned for release:

Tropico 6 is scheduled for a worldwide release on Windows PC, Mac, Linux on January 25th 2019 and on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One later in 2019.

It's really nice to see it so clearly mentioned again!


  • Play on large archipelagos for the first time in the series. Manage multiple islands at the same time and adapt to various new challenges.
  • Send your agents on raids to foreign lands to steal world wonders and monuments, to add them to your collection.
  • Build bridges, construct tunnels and transport your citizens and tourists in taxis, buses and aerial cable cars. Tropico 6 offers completely new transportation and infrastructure possibilities.
  • Customize the looks of your palace at will and choose from various extras.
  • Tropico 6 features a revised research system focusing on the political aspects of being the world’s greatest dictator.
  • Election speeches are back! Address the people and make promises that you can’t possibly keep.
  • Co-operative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players. 

They also have a rather silly trailer:

Sadly, it seems the Beta is still going to be Windows only. Hopefully the Linux version will be seeing enough testing, it does worry me slightly when a Beta is only for one platform, although that's quite common for bigger releases like this.

You can follow it and pre-order with a discount on Humble Store and Steam, both stores already listing Linux support.

Quoting: rickownsbut at the end of the day if you really want to play the game are you willing to wait for something that might never happen? Or just simply go to steam, buy and play right away?

Not commenting on Gog or Steam here, but if I wouldn't be willing to wait or resign sometimes, I wouldn't be playing on Linux in the first place. (On the other hand, you'll have to draw a line somewhere...)

Looking forward to this so that's pre-ordered right away. I hope the flamingo pond got some good quality inflatables that'll last a few tourist seasons.
