Break out the cigars, pour a celebratory rum and join El Presidente as he basks in his own glory. Friday 29th March saw the global PC launch of Tropico 6, the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed dictator sim series, and the results from the polls are a landslide victory for El Presidente! Kalypso Media today announced that over the launch weekend, Tropico 6 topped the Steam charts in many countries and languages, as well as seeing a 50% increase in revenue and volume of digital pre-purchase and digital launch weekend sales in comparison to the launch of Tropico 5 in 2014.

‘We are thrilled at the success of the Tropico 6 launch, both in sales, community feedback and user reviews’ says Simon Hellwig, Founder and Global Managing Director of Kalypso Media. ‘Building on the success of Tropico 5 and receiving such positive comments from the fans and press, only reinforces our ongoing commitment in supporting this fantastic series leading up to the console launch later this year and beyond.’

Tropico 6, developed by Limbic Entertainment, is available globally now for PC and Linux (Mac version to follow soon). Console versions are set to follow in summer 2019 on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. To request a review code for PC, please contact the UK PR team or request a key via Keymailer.
