Prison Architect is still in Early Access on Steam, but it will finally see full release on October 6. The game has been in development for many years, but it has already managed to create substantial income for Introversion. Speaking to Eurogamer, the founding director of Introversion Mark Morris has confirmed that the game has sold around 1.25 million copies and made them $19 million for them.
Morris also goes a bit into their past and future plans. The company was on the verge of a collapse in 2010, as it almost went bankrupt. But then they came up with the idea of Prison Architect and everything worked out fine. The company currently employs 16 people, but they plan to expand a bit. There will be a dedicated team to continue supporting Prison Architect, while Morris and Chris Delay move onto another things. And next time it will not be about building prisons:
"The next game we make will not be about prisons, and it will not be about building", Morris explains. "It will be about something completely different."
