Development is well underway on Democracy 4, the latest iteration of the political strategy game by Positech Games. Democracy 3 was released in 2013 and...quite a lot has happened in global politics since then, which we hope to reflect in the new version. Here are the answers to some expected questions:

Programmer and Designer on Democracy 4 will be Jeff Sheen from Stargazy Studios, who also designed Democracy 3:Africa and worked on the Unicode port of Democracy 3 recently to allow support for Russian & Chinese translations. Cliff Harris (democ 1,2,3) will also be coding and designing.
Democracy 4 will incorporate the extra features introduced in Democracy 3 Africa, which simulated corruption, limits to press freedom and other political phenomena from the extremes which are starting to become more common in western politics since the release of Democracy 3.
The game will be completely updated to reflect modern issues, so no more worrying about the 'V' chip and other long forgotten issues, and more worrying about fake-news, social media, and other phenomena driving politics in 2018 onwards. An improved economic simulation includes inflation, and monetary policy, and we will be modelling veganism, transition to electric vehicles, and offer new policies such as Universal Basic Income, The Right to Die, Gay Marriage, Gender transition, Border walls & many more.
The release date is 'some time in 2020' and we expect to offer an early-access / playable alpha version to players before the games final release. Target platforms are PC, OSX and Linux. A bunch of languages will be suported before final release.
We will roll content from the existing 4 expansion packs (Extremism, Social Engineering, Clones & Drones and Electioneering) into Democracy 4 where appropriate and relevant to provide a single version of the game.
