The console release of "Cities: Skylines 2" is delayed indefinitely due to unresolved stability and performance issues. According to publisher Paradox, the game has not yet met the necessary criteria to ensure a satisfactory player experience, prompting the delay to focus on resolving these problems.

"Cities: Skylines 2," developed by Colossal Order, is the sequel to the popular city-building game "Cities: Skylines."
