Credit here, please check the site if interested in more info. Obviously no announcement has been made and the source is a third party website, so all the relevant disclaimers apply:

As you can see, it's classed as a special ship and there's also an upcoming flag for it.

So far the stats appear to be exactly the same as Goliath, but I guess they will be tweaked to fulfill whatever role WG wants.

I could see a faster reload with a more normal heal. 

That idea would seem to fit WG MO as of late of promoting faster battles.

Looks like a coal, RB or steel ship to me?  I'd guess coal or RB.. but,  I suppose a dockyard ship might not be out of the question?

If they bring out this thing for coal and it bears a similar relation to Goliath as Salem does to Des Moines, my climb up the RN CA tech tree is effectively over.

Although with a name like Cyclops, she needs a variant on Chapayev's Halloween camo, with its single all-seeing eye replacing the rangefinder.

My guess is it's just a testing platform.

Testing platforms don't normally get commemorative flags done up for them.

If you have the Goliath, why get this (assuming it is a true 100% clone)?  If it is close but has a few different stats, then I can see a need/want for it. 

I know that the credit earning would be a bit different, and it would be a good cruiser captain trainer.

Very odd ship, it's basically a Goliath that's 75% cheaper to run and you can run Cunningham or the Dunkirks more easily in it, and the fact WG never mentioned this ship appearing anywhere. If you like Goliath and ever wondered "I'd really like a cheaper to run version I can run Cunningham on without retraining him from Daring or Thunderer" go for it.  Although if WG is serious about this ship, maybe they'll trade its portable drydock for better DPM or give it better armor at the cost of DPM, just to give it a different feel from Goliath.

Hey comrade, you didn't like the restriction of 1 Goliath per team in Clan Battles?
Don't worry, you can just buy our brand new heavy cruiser Cyclops, there's no restriction applied to this one, enjoy!

I can't believe that it would stay a clone.  Is it possible that they may convert it to AP only with better pin angles?  Also add long range torps as well including smoke???  There's a lot they could do here, if this is truly a ship in the making those add-ons would be interesting.

I doubt it’ll be dockyard. We got confirmation that Marlborough and  Repulse will be offered together next so I doubt they’d offer yet another RN ship so soon after.

Take all that, change the turrets to three quads and you have Gibraltar, coming soon.

As an FYI, the original Cyclops page links now to Gibraltar.
