Hearts of Iron 4 launches this ‘D-Day’

Hearts of Iron 4 will be available this June, Paradox Interactive confirmed during a press event today. The World War II strategy game will launch in time for D-Day, June 6, in keeping with its theme.

The game was first announced in 2014. Paradox planned it for a late 2015 release, a window it missed. A delay pushed it to the June launch date.

The previous entry in the series launched on Windows PC in 2009. Hearts of Iron 4 is planned for release on Linux, Mac and PC.
