Questions from the comments: 


What's the Roadmap for BTD6 this year?
Content filled! We don’t have a roadmap we are ready to release at the moment. 

Do You Guys See A Potential Bloons Monkey City 2 In The Works In The Future?
We would love to do a BMC 2 but we wanna make sure we get it right so it’s been put on the back burner until we can dedicate more time to it! 

how many quincys (quincies?) sons of quincys are there?
Currently, one. 

Will any specialty towers from BTD5 (such as the Bee Keeper or Radadactle) return to BTD6? If so, would they be towers, powers, or heroes?
Not at this point! 

What would a 4th path for the Dart Monkey be like? And would there be any references to previous games in it?
I’m not sure what else we could really add to the Dart Monkey! 

Do the monkeys get annoyed when they are nerfed?
They love a good balance

Can we have a small hint to any new tower, paragon, hero, or hero skin that is in the works?
But that would ruin the surprise

Considering we have 2 Paragons for Primary, 1 for Magic, 1 for Military, does that mean we will be seeing a support Paragon in the future (and how the heck that would even work)?
Not necessarily, we are more picking the towers we have ideas for right away! 

what the heck did monkey Bruno did to make Adora so angry
Who?

What do the zombie Bloons from Bloons adventure time think of the Reanimated Bloons from the Prince of Darkness?
“RAAAAUUUUGHHHH” - The Zombie Bloons

Do you guys have any plans for the upcoming 15th anniversary of the Bloons franchise this March?
We don’t currently! 

Are you going to add a sand box in btdb2?
Not at the moment

Was the we don't talk about Bruno a reference to Encanto?
It's a good movie! 

what is your favorite tier 5 in the game?
I really like the Tack Zone! The M.A.D is pretty awesome as well. 

what is below the fog in the sanctuary map?
Many brave monkeys have gone to find out but no one has returned… yet..

Did Scientist Gwen design the Inferno Ring?
She did now. 

will plushes like the dart monkey potentially come back in the future?
Unfortunately, no. These were limited time and will not be available again. 

Do you think Fortress: Destroyer or Red Storm will ever be ported to the Archive?
Sadly no. :( 

What would happen if Elite Bloonarius managed to escape from your game to real world?
We try not to think about it… 

Will there be a BFB plush?
Maybe, we have a lot planned for plushies! 

Will the Gwen and Obyn plushies be available at Amazon
Nope, these were exclusive to Makeship. 

Is there a bloons version of youtube? If so, what kind of content would the heroes upload on it?
A lot of agriculture videos, engineering tutorials and music! 

Which hero/tower likes grilled cheese the best
Dartling Gunner. 

Before new maps are added, how much playtesting is done? Do you do just a few games, or do you try to black border them first?
Lots of playtesting is done for each new map. There are a number of us that aim for that BB before releasing the map.

Restricted areas like in Co-op for Challenge Editor when?
When indeed? 

If F tier stands for Fantastic, does that mean S tier stands for Sam tier?
Sam/Sav tier, the best tier. 

What kind of resistances does monkey fur provide?
Depends on the Monkey! 

Would you add fan creations for future updates?
We don’t tend to add fan creations but we do add things from the community if they are from competitions we host! 

is there any console ports of btd6 planned? i want to get it for my younger siblings but they primarly play on nintendo switch so I was wondering if there will be a day i might be able to.
It is something we are looking into! 

What's the name of Pirate Lord's ship? :) (Like the Black Pearl or Queen Anne's Revenge)
Simians Vengeance

Why can't the true sun god see camo?
Sun is in its eyes. 

on a scale of 1 to 10, how good are pat fusty's hugs
10/10 would hug again
 

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
