Publisher Ziggurat Interactive and developer Abylight Studios announced Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, a reboot of the classic chain management series. The title will arrive in 2021 for consoles (without specifying which ones) and PC.
This is the newest and all-new chapter in the Prison Tycoon series and will focus on the challenges of rehabilitating and reintegrating prisoners back to healthy and functioning members of society. The game is being developed by award-winning Abylight Studios, which has produced many notable projects, including Hyper Light Drifter, Tiny Thief, and Super Hydorah.
Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, assigns players the task of creating and maintaining a successfully managed prison – complete with security checkpoints, guard towers, prison cells, and in-house services. Aspiring guards will need to maintain a balance between services and security as they strive to run an efficient facility while keeping prisoners on the road to reintegration. To increase their imprisonment and improve their capacities, players will need to secure funding from state agencies, manage the flow of funds and keep employees satisfied while providing adequate care for their charges.
