Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition is just the start of our plans for Prison Architect, we have much more in the works that you’ll hear about soon.”
Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition will be the first PC expansion to be released since Paradox purchased the Prison Architect IP and partnered with developer Double Eleven earlier this year.
