The developer behind the addictive Bloons Tower Defense 5 game has confirmed the 6th version of the app will be released in 2017.
While Ninja Kiwi Limited hasn’t announced a specific launch date, they say their team is hard at work making the mobile app perfect for users.
The main reason behind the delay, the company says, is because of the “immense scale and strategic depth of the game require an extensive balance and test period”.
The game’s precursor, Bloons TD 5, has been an app store phenomenon since its release in November 2012.
It’s successfully remained in the top 25 ranks of US app store paid charts throughout its life and recently returning to the #1 position on the US Google Play top overall paid apps.
The app has racked up around 9.3 million downloads, and has maintained a consistent 4.5/5 star rating across the nearly 50 major content updates released to date.
What’s in store for Bloons TD 6?
The company’s confirmed it’ll maintain the “series’ captivating balance of family friendly visual style and challenging, skill based strategic play”. However, Ninja Kiwi isn’t releasing any information about new towers, new abilities, or new game modes.
The company has said that their intention is to “knock it out of the park”, as Bloons TD 6 is designed to be better in every way than its top selling predecessor.
But users will be the judge of that.
