To all Wardens,

We just announced “Cleared for Transfer”, the next free DLC that is coming to Prison Architect on May 14th. The development team is working on fine-tuning the changes, and we can’t wait to get the new content in your hands!

Before you start exploring the new transfer mechanics, we wanted to share an important decision we had to make to keep the development of new content sustainable: reducing the number of supported languages.

As of now, Prison Architect supports 26 languages, a number that is impossible for us to maintain to an acceptable level of quality without impacting the development of upcoming content and highly anticipated features. We, therefore, decided that moving forward, we will focus our efforts on supporting the following languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Dutch Turkish, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese.

This decision will only impact future updates, starting with Cleared for Transfer. All the content you played and enjoyed so far will still be available for you to play in all of the previously supported languages - we don’t intend to remove it. Additionally, to support our global communities, we will release the localization files to facilitate community translations. We will also release a guide on how to make your community translation before the release of Cleared for Transfer.

We understand that this decision might disappoint some of you, but we took it with the game’s best interest at heart. We have exciting plans for Prison Architect, and great things are ahead of us!
