Publisher Team17 and developer Mouldy Toof have announced today that the prison-break game is busting out of its current Xbox One and PC exclusivity, and will be launching on PS4. A specific release date has not been provided, so all we know is that it's coming "soon".

Your job in The Escapists is to plan and execute a prison escape, as you might have guessed, working around the strict schedule and attention of the guards to make it out free. You'll have to last through cell shakedowns, take on a job, and earn favors with other inmates to get your hands on the supplies needed to make a getaway.
