Cities: Skylines 2 developer Colossal Order has announced that they are delaying planned premium DLC while they continue to work on optimising and fixing their recently released city builder and management sim, as well as putting a priority on getting mod support added in.

What’s not currently clear is when the next update will arrive or what optimisations it will include, as CO has decided it’s now best to release patches a bit less frequently for larger performance gains, instead of pushing out a weekly update.
CEO Mariina Hallikainen writes, “For the last few weeks, we’ve been focusing on performance improvements and bug fixes at a rapid pace. As we’re continuing to work on the improvements we’ll adjust the pace of the updates slightly so we won’t see a new patch every week going forward but will have a bit longer cadence between them. We have made it through the quicker fixes and we’re now digging into the ones that require a bit more work.

To explain the process, Hallikainen talked about the in-game Mail Service. They found that mail isn’t actually being delivered to residents, companies and cities services because of bugs with the Post Sorting Facility making it behave erratically, and that Post Office vans seem to only collect and not deliver mail. These bugs have been identified and are being fixed, with the system then being looked at to see if it requires rebalancing.
