Kalypso records its best ever pre-order numbers, quadrupling what Tropico 4 did on Steam
Ahead of the global release of the PC version of Tropico 5 on 23rd May, the Kalypso Media Group has announced that the game has set new internal pre-sale records for the entire company. Not only has the title topped the Amazon pre-sale charts for many weeks in several countries, but Kalypso can also reveal that the Digital distribution pre-orders on Steam have exceeded expectations. Tropico 5 has achieved four times the number of orders secured over its predecessor Tropico 4, which was released in 2011.
“We have put great passion and almost all available resources into the development and marketing of Tropico 5 and the pre-sales success once again demonstrates the talent and ability of our great teams in Germany, the UK and the USA. We are constantly working to expand our franchises internationally and these figures for Tropico 5 are testament to this” commented Simon Hellwig, Global Managing Director of Kalypso Media.
Tropico 5 will be available for PC globally on 23rd of May (US retail 3rd June). Xbox 360 and Mac will be available this summer – with a version for the PlayStation 4 platform following in autumn.
