Double Eleven had said previously that they didn’t want to add the “Escape mode” for the console version.
“We’ve previously spoken about our reasons for not including Escape Mode in our development for Prison Architect: Console Edition, a decision which understandably disappointed some players.”
But something has changed since then, because now they are announcing the developing of this mode for consoles.
“The short version of the story is that we’re always listening to the feedback from our dedicated console community, and we’re pleased to let you know that we’re about to begin work on our version of Escape Mode, coming out in 2018 as DLC.
We’re not ready to share any specifics, that information will come in the new year, but we can let you know it will be available to purchase as a DLC pack for PS4 and Xbox One around summer time 2018. The DLC will be based on the Escape Mode featured in Introversion’s PC version, reworking that gameplay and additional new features specifically for our console players.”
