Transport Tycoon remake coming to iOS/Android later this year

Transport Tycoon, one of the all-time classic management sims for the PC, will be headed to iOS and Android devices soon, according to a teaser trailer released today.

The PC version of Chris Sawyer’s legendary game has you building up your own transport company from something as small as a modest local bus route to a massive shipping concern. Whether the new version of the game will be cast in this mould or be updated into today’s preferred management simulation formula of microtransactions and social media hassling remains to be seen.

Expect to hear more soon.
