The compilation was originally released on September 7, 2004 in the United States, and on October 15, 2004 in Europe as RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Deluxe Edition. The US version is a single-disc release, also containing a preview for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. The European release features the base game and expansion packs in two keep cases inside a slipbox. Later European re-issues would feature a single-disc.
In 2014, Triple Thrill Pack was released onto Steam. In 2015, the Steam and GOG versions of Deluxe receive several language packs that were added manually, while UK English is still not represented with this edition, which means that no matter where you live, the American English version of the game is the one used.
