Amplitude’s new civilization-building 4X has had a successful, if a bit rocky, launch.

With a debut week that broke it into the top 20 games on Steam and a player count since in the tens of thousands it’s safe to say that new 4X Humankind has been a financial success. Developer Amplitude has now outlined its development plans for Humankind in the near future, and it looks like the delayed mod tools are high on their list.

Amplitude wrote, “We have discussed our intentions for the modding abilities of Humankind previously, and although the scope of those plans hasn’t changed, we can’t deny that the timing didn’t work out as we had hoped,”
