Not sure if you are talking about PC. But, for consoles it seem to be releasing on June 26, 2019.

It's an Amazon.ca preorder, you won't get it on release week. But you should get a $5/10 credit after complaining for the late delivery.

Edit : Thanks OP. Great deal, I preordered.

Dang your CS reps have been nice. I've only been offered a free month of prime which I don't even know if they applied.

Are release day preorders often off for games? I haven't received anything I preordered from E3 those years back yet.

In my experience, BestBuy has been the most consistent throughout the years for my preorders. I even received a game a day early from BB. You might get different results if you live in a urban area or near a dispatch center.

Walmart also has problem with preorders. My last preorder from them had a Wednesday release but the game was shipped Wednesday night and received Friday, two days late. Will see if they do better in April when I'll get my Days Gone preorder.

Amazon has had problems with game preorders for the last year or two. There seems to be an ongoing problem with their suppliers where they deliver the game to Amazon after release only. This might explains why so many games couldn't be preordered. However, this seems to be fixed since most titles show "Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca" when you preorder. The best example was the RDR2 release from Amazon, they didn't ship the game until the weekend was over.

Usually, I don't mind waiting a few days to save $30-$40 on a new title. I rarely have time to play on release date with work and the family.

Sorry, yes to clarify it’s PC release. I can’t get used to building sim games on console. So was thinking of PC only.

I'd add also that you can still even access your FutureShop old orders from BestBuy. Imagine the same situation of sorts, with Amazon or Walmart. The horror!

I used to love SimCity but after that the franchise was shut down I can't get enough of Cities Skylines or Tropico.

I love games these games for PC.

I love this game. Played everyone in the series, but there is no way I spend more than $20 given the lack of changes between each one, and the insane amount of DLC. I'll wait and get the complete edition next year.

And that's what I get for preordering...
Bought it direct from Kalypso for $42USD.

I did get to play the beta, but that's certainly not worth 35%.

Feedback? A lot better than the previous and does it get boring after a couple of hours?

It's been a couple months since playing it (I preordered in October) but there was a few new mechanics from what I recall.

All in all, the base game is still identical from Tropico 3, but has picked up most of the features from 4 and 5.

Worth $42USD or in this case $40CAD? Maybe.
I liked the franchise hence the prepurchase.
If you're on the fence, play some more tropico 5 and wait a year for the golden game of the presidents edition deluxe platinum that includes the DLC because I guarantee there will be DLC.
