The Escapists coming to PS4, says PEGI

UPDATE: Team17 confirms it. Coming "soon".

UPDATE 12.15AM BST: Team17 has confirmed it, sending the official press release to Eurogamer. The Escapists is coming to PlayStation 4 "soon". It's also now mentioned on the European PlayStation Blog.

ORIGINAL STORY 11.15AM BST: PEGI - not her from down The Vic but the Pan-European age-ratings board - has listed prison indie game The Escapists for PlayStation 4.

No PS4 version of the game has ever been talked about; it's available at the moment on PC and Xbox One.

We've asked publisher Team17 for comment.

The Escapists came out back in January when the frosts were severe. We really liked it - Recommended it, in fact. The gist is you plan and carry out an escape while maintaining a hectic daily prison schedule, with dollops of spontaneous violence here and there.

"It may have its minor frustrations but there's nothing here that really spoils what is an otherwise delightful and endlessly surprising game," wrote Dan Whitehead in our Escapists review.
