Train simulator games have consistently been some of the most detailed simulators out there. Since driving a modern locomotive is so complex, there is near endless customization and creativity in how a train simulator can be made. Train Sim World and its series are some of the pioneers of this developing genre of simulation games. Since there are multiple Train Sim World games, the latest release often leads to speculation about the launch and release of the next title in the series. This is true of Train Sim World 5, which is supposed to follow the latest release of Train Sim World 4. So, if you are wondering when Train Sim World 5 is going to be released for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, consider reading until the end.
Since Train Sim Word 4 was a decently commercial success, the developers are inclined to support it by releasing consistent updates. With there being development in the railroading world as well, we can come to expect add-ons and other DLCs to make their way to the TSW 4 title. Considering this, any possibility of the release of TSW 5 would be exactly that: a prediction.
Train Sim World 5 Release Date for PC, PS5 & Xbox Series X?
TSW5 is going to be the upcoming and anticipated release in the TSW franchise. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this article, there is no official confirmation regarding its expected release. But, in the absence of an official release date, we can take a look at older titles and their release cycles to predict the release of the upcoming game in the series.
When will it come out?
Going purely chronologically, TSW games tend to be released once every year or once every two years. Considering that the release of TSW 4 was this year (2023), the assumed release date for TSW 5 would be late 2024 (probably Aug-Oct 2024). What we can say for certain is that it will come to all platforms, including PC, PS, and Xbox. Since the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are the current-gen consoles, it’s expected that the upcoming game will be exclusive to these consoles (including PC) and not on the previous-gen consoles. But this is, of course, just speculation from our side, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Why will it come out so late?
As we explained above, DLCs and add-ons are the reason why it might take some time for the developers to release TSW 5. The developers will likely take time to develop a new standalone release for the series. In the meantime, they will release addons and DLCs for their latest release (TSW 4). This will keep players interested in the game while they work on a new release. Well, currently, there is no official word from the developers at Dovetail Games regarding the release of TSW 5, but we expect some information in this regard soon.
If the developers make sure to follow the release pattern for releasing TSW games, we can expect a Q3 2024 release for TSW 5. If there are any developmental halts or obstacles, the release will be delayed. That being said, we look forward to the upcoming updates and DLCs for the TSW 4 game and hope TSW 5 will build upon its predecessor and be a better and more realistic game.
Anyway, these were our predictions and speculation regarding the release of Train Sim World 5. If you found this article helpful and would like to read more, make sure to visit Android Gram daily.
