The family friendly mobile tower defence franchise is all set to get another sequel, as Bloons TD 6 has just been announced for a 2017 release on Android.

And that’s… all Ninja Kiwi has to say on the matter right now, with no mention of new modes, towers, or abilities aside from, well, heavily hinting that there will be all of the above.

Judging from the press release, Bloons TD 6 is likely to be the most ambitious entry in the franchise so far. Ninja Kiwi hinted as much when it said: “The team has not announced a launch date, as the immense scale and strategic depth of the game require an extensive balance and test period, but their goal is to release the game in 2017.”

Immense scale and strategic depth, eh? Is that PR talk or a genuine sign that something special’s on the horizon? Only time will tell. Shouldn’t be too long a wait though, as Bloons TD 6 will launch this year.
