Empire of Sin Releases in December, Pre Orders Live

Romero Games' Empire of Sin finally has a release date after getting delayed earlier this year.

Would be mob bosses have been waiting a while for new information on Empire of Sin's new release date. The strategy/roleplaying/management game from developer Romero Games and publisher Paradox Interactive was delayed in February for more polish and was slated for launch sometime this fall. 

Though it won't exactly make that Fall 2020 release window, Empire of Sin isn't that far off. It will release on December 1 for PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Pre orders are live now and include several editions, including a standard edition, a deluxe edition, and a premium edition. There are also several pre order bonuses available. Right now, only the standard edition is available for the Nintendo Switch.

Empire of Sin is set in 1920s Chicago, smack in the middle of the Prohibition Era. Players will construct their criminal empires by managing various enterprises, brokering alliances, and, of course, letting fly a few pounds of lead. 

At least visually, it's certainly a different take on the turn-based strategy genre, which often dabbles in grimdark, sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, or medieval settings. But let's face it: being able to go toe-to-toe with Al Capone is enough for us. 

Developed by legendary designer John Romero (Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein) and Brenda Romero (Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Commander, Ravenwood Fair, Wizardry 8),
