Tropico 4
Tropico 4 Delayed Into October

A representative for Tropico 4 publisher Kalypso Media has confirmed to Joystiq that the game in which you play as a benevolent or unscupulous dictator called El Presidente, has been delayed until next month on Xbox 360. Tropico 4 is out now on PC.

Tropico 4 had been pencilled in for a 'mid-September' release, but the new release date of October 18th has been announced and verified. So, there you go. That flourishing dictatorship will just have to stay on the backburner for the time being.

@2 Do you really want them to say why? It doesn't look good for themselves or to their consumers if they say it's unfinished, broken etc.

Saw this coming. Took me forever to find Tropico 3 in stores here they were so under stocked, hopefully when this finally releases it'll actually be in store shelves in my somewhat small town.

I suppose thats okay. Tropico 3, which I absolutely love was released with a pretty serious bug in which save games wouldn't load. If they're taking the time to make sure this DOESN'T happen then I'm fine with that. Especially this close to the Gears release...

Not amused....I was going to play this ahead of Deus Ex when it was first due to be released....might get Tropico 3 to pass the time....and yes I would play that ahead of Dead Island, Deus Ex...and Gears :P

@ #13 - I completely agree about playing it ahead of the others. I already played Deus Ex. Nice game but really, eh... Dead Island sounds intriguing but I'm about sick of anything with zombies and although Gears is fun its still just Gears... The Xbox doesn't have enough of these strategy type games so Tropico 4 will get a lot of play time in my machine. Unfortunately Battlefield comes out a week later which could get hairy but being unemployed I'm sure I'll find the time to enjoy both...

Probably not a great call with so many AAA titles coming up. I hope that the sales still keep this series afloat.

Something tells me the 360 version will be a neutered copy of the PC game...

Just like in #3 with screwing up the garage size and taking out the wind turbines
