Questions from the Comments:

When will we be expecting to see it on other platforms?
No time frame to give, sorry!
 
Will there be x in BTD6 in the future?
We've got a lot of updates planned, including Heroes, Towers and Challenges. We tend to keep quiet about things so for the most part you'll need to wait for updates to find what we'll be adding. Feedback, suggestions and requests are listened to and discussed though, so keep 'em coming!
 
Will Bloons TD 5 get any more updates?
There will be more BTD5 updates, yep.
 
Why were the blimp sprites in BTD6's sandbox mode copied from BMC?
Were they?
 
Could Ninja Kiwi please announce Tower Keepers bosses slightly ahead of time, so players won't miss out on the lower levels?
We will be alternating between Boss events and week long campaigns, so the schedule should be predictable :) Check on the campaign timer for a countdown (next boss is June 27 at 8am UTC)
 
Will you ever be able to do stuff with left over monkey XP?
This has been brought up but we haven't got anything to announce around it.
 
Will the Samsung S8 get full screen support?
It should do now. You may need to check your display settings.
 
BTD6 is amazing! Well done NK team :) Quick question: Why would I ever want a 0-0-4 Village when free Dart Monkeys at ~$200 each will mean I'll need over 100 rounds worth of free Dart Monkeys to pay it back?
Who doesn't want free Dart Monkeys? But yep, if you're min/maxing cash you may not get that upgrade.
 
When will Ninja Kiwi quit with the Daily Challenges in BTD5? After 6 years it is not a challenge anymore...
Never! They will continue for eternity (though you may see past ones repeating very soon). No need to play them if you don't want to :)
 
SAS5 when?
When it hasn't been mentioned for 666 days in a row we will release it.
 
Are there any plans on any updates for BTD Battles mobile?
Yep! Still got some cool stuff to bring to BTD Battles.

 

And that's all folks! Enjoy your weekend, leave any comments/questions below and stay awesome!
