This Is The Police Release Date Announced

By Kelly Packard,
This is the Police, an adventure game where players' choices really matter, has had its console versions dated.

The game has been out on PC since last August and the announcement comes in the form of a cheeky letter from protagonist Police Chief Jack Boyd to the PC community where he revokes their exclusivity. The letter also includes some cool stats about how much the game was played (1.7 million hours), how much money players collected in-game ($85 billion), and as everything does nowadays, a stab at U.S. President Trump.

Dear PC community,

Allow me to briefly introduce myself. My name is Boyd, Jack Boyd, Freeburg’s Police Chief in charge, and I hereby would like to revoke our exclusivity.

To cut to the chase: the PCMR (not only the subreddit, but the entire PC gaming community) had me exclusively for quite some time now. Here are some alternative facts for you: After playing my gritty ass for 1.7 million hours, raking in 85 billion dollars of corruption money (President Trump, let me pay for that wall), and protecting the mob from tens of thousands of charges and felonies, I think it is time to move on.

After offering my services on the PC platform over the past couple of months, I’m tired, exhausted, bored, and just need a change of scenery. I recently got an offer from two competing platform holders in that department. I would like to do without the usual name-dropping of Microsoft and Sony, but sometimes a man’s gotta do, what a man’s gotta do.

I hope you are not disappointed when our period of exclusivity is over, and that I would like to start working on other platforms beginning with March 22nd 2017.

Best regards,

Jack Boyd
Chief of Police, Freeburg PD
If you didn't catch that in the letter, This Is The Police will be out on March 22nd, when you'll surely be able to get to know this interesting fellow even better.
