Cities: Skylines II didn’t arrive in a great state last month, with performance issues, bugs, and other issues dampening fans’ excitement. Around a month later, Colossal Order have issued a developer update, promising to continue working on the game’s performance, bug fixes, and early modding tools. That certainly sounds good, but it also means post-launch content, and possibly the console versions, will arrive later than expected. Colossal Order have provided this updated roadmap.
A variety of asset and creator packs will now arrive later, including Beach Properties in Q1 2024 and Modern Architecture and Urban Promenades in Q2 2024.

This means focusing on the CPU stutters and simulation performance to improve simulation speed and smooth out the experience while scaling up the size of your cities.”
“We continue to go through your bug reports and have logged around 100 reproducible issues that have been moved to the team to look into.Read more on wccftech.com
