The game offers deeper simulation, greater player control, an inhabitant behavior system and creative options to define the next generation of management gameplay. Prison Architect 2 launches on March 26 on Steam, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 for a suggested retail price of $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99. Enterprising Architects can pre-order Prison Architect 2 on PC today.

Prison Architect 2 offers advanced simulation systems, enabling players to construct intricate compounds with a high degree of creative freedom in a 3D environment. From building elaborate structures to managing inmates’ needs while maintaining the facility’s financial stability, Prison Architect 2 expands gameplay and creative tools across the board, for an engaging sandbox experience. The game also introduces a connection system between the prisoners, who will make friends or enemies with each other, impacting who they will hang out, partner or fight with. Prison Architect 2 brings prison construction and management gameplay to a new level by entering the third dimension and bringing deeper simulation than ever before.

Welcome, Architects!
Design and develop your own personalized penitentiary in Prison Architect 2. The classic prison-builder will soon break out into 3D, and it’s up to you to contain it! Get a taste of what’s to come:

“In Prison Architect 2, our team set out to create the next level in management gameplay. A greater degree of player freedom, impactful choices, and inmate simulation come together to provide an enhanced presentation of prison management, in a 3D world. Much loved features make a return to help you manage your inmates, quell riots, prevent escapes and share your prisons, but now cross-platform! In addition to a new upgrade system, a new Career Mode, and more.” said Gareth Wright, Game Director at Double Eleven. “We look forward to seeing how players get creative with multiple floors and catwalks to finally construct and expand in 3D. And then optimize and balance their prison’s safety, security and self-betterment.”

The World’s Greatest Prison Management Game – Now in 3D!
Use your resources to build, manage, and control your prison in classic Prison Architect playstyle-now in 3 glorious dimensions! Design every corner of your prison and manage everything from daily schedules to policies, and ensure your prison is safe, self-sustaining, and secure.

Build the Ultimate Penitentiary
Establish all of your prison infrastructure over multiple floors, and use tons of snazzy new tools that allow you to build a state-of-the-art correctional facility. The design of your prison will affect every aspect of your inmates’ lives, so make your schemes accordingly!
The Smartest Inmates Ever
Unique inmates have schemes of their own – they now form distinct relationships that influence behavior and make decisions based on wants and needs. Watch as they interact and attempt to navigate the daily trials of your prison. Remember that every choice you make might either help or hinder your inmates’ correctional journey. It’s your choice what kind of experiences your inmates have with your prison.
The Prison Magnate
Establish and run a true institution from the top, building up unique correctional facilities in a freshly upgraded Career Mode that will take you across a brand new world map. Will your prisons end up being monuments to rehabilitation or retribution? Most importantly, will they pay the bills?
Every Action has a Reaction
Choices matter and yours will determine the fate of your prison. More control than ever – over inmates, prison policies, architecture, and more – means more ways for things to go well… or not! Plan carefully or you may have to cope with escapes, riots, and all sorts of expensive and destructive problems.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Why are you making a sequel to Prison Architect?
Prison Architect 1 was officially released eight years ago and it was available to play in its Alpha form for several years before that. A lot of things have changed over the 10+ years of development, however, the interest and basic draw the game has with players has not changed. We looked at Prison Architect 1 and took the features that charmed players the most and brought them into a 3D world that can only go up.

What are the recommended system requirements to play Prison Architect 2?
Recommended system requirements are coming soon!

Will Prison Architect 2 have any cross-platform features?
Yes! You will be able to share your prison cross-platform via the World of Wardens!

How deep are the prison/room customization options?
Do you fancy bare concrete walls and floors? Or do you prefer plush carpets and cozy wood-paneled walls? The choice is yours, Architect.

Why switch from 2D to 3D?
This was a highly requested feature, and an Easter Egg in the original game, together with the option to have multiple floors. When we started designing Prison Architect 2, we decided those two elements would be a design pillar for the game—as they add depth to construction and gameplay.
