Tropico 5 is set to be the first entry in the series to appear on Sony consoles, when it releases on PS4 later this year.
Until now, the game had only been listed for PC, Mac and Xbox 360. Curiously, today's announcement didn't include confirmation of a next-gen Xbox version.
Multiplayer has also been confirmed for the upcoming game. Up to four players will be able to work co-operatively or competitively, though no details were disclosed other than that.
