Team17 and developer Mouldy Toof have announced that the follow up to their award-winning prison-escape game, The Escapists 2 is out now for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac and Linux. A Nintendo Switch version is also currently in development.
Following a successful launch of The Escapists in 2015, the series has since gone on to celebrate over 4 million downloads.
