A rumor has started to float around talking about a Cities: Skylines Playstation 4 port coming soon, bringing Paradox Interactive’s published city builder simulator to a mainline console. Whether it’s true or not, however, is a different story. The rumor began due to a leaked classification rating for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
An Xbox One version of the game has already been released, leaving the Playstation 4 as the only platform. If the leaked classification data is to be believed, however, the game will soon be getting ported over to the Playstation 4.
Cities: Skylines is something of a departure from Paradox’s usual fare, when the company is normally focused on making Grand Strategy games such as Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, and Hearts of Iron. However, it’s not really that different from a regular city sim: You build a city and ensure its inhabitants are happy.
While a Cities: Skylines Playstation 4 port most likely isn’t necessary, as long as it makes more money for Paradox there’s not really a problem with it.
The game has been a fairly big success for Paradox and Skylines’s developer Colossal Order, anyway. The game has sold 3.5 million copies, and has proven itself better than SimCity, especially when it was initially kept from releasing due to concerns over the 2013 version of SimCity.
Since that game bombed massively, Cities: Skylines has taken over its niche and made it even better. A DLC was even released recently that allows you to inflict different types of disasters on your city, such as a meteor strike, a tsunami, an earthquake, and more.
Paradox will likely announce if a Cities: Skylines Playstation 4 port is coming at some point, so in the meantime we’ll just have to watch out for any sort of news about it being ported to the Playstation 4 in the meantime.
