Cities: Skylines Coming to Xbox One This Spring

Cities: Skylines Coming to Xbox One This Spring

The heir to SimCity will be coming to consoles for the first time.

Paradox Interactive announced today that Cities: Skylines will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in Spring 2017. Tantalus Media will be handling the port instead of Cities: Skylines developer Colossal Order, with new optimizations for controller play. The Xbox One version will only include the game's first expansion, After Dark.

"Paradox is a company that's proud to publish and support 'niche' games, and we're happy to be able to bring those specialized experiences to console as well." said Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester. "Cities: Skylines has built one of the biggest and most active communities we've seen among Paradox's fans, and that's saying a lot. We can't wait to welcome Xbox One players into that group, and I'm eager to see the towns and cities they can build."

There's no word on whether the rest of the Cities: Skylines expansions will be making the shift over to Xbox One and Windows 10. The second and third major expansion, Snowfall and Natural Disasters, were both released on PC, Mac, and Linux last year.
