THQ Nordic have announced This Is The Police 2, a sequel to the police management sim, with a trailer which you can watch above.
The game is being developed by the same people, Weappy Studio and published by THQ Nordic.
The developer says it will offer the same morally ambiguous "adventure and management" gameplay as the first This Is the Police, but with new mechanics that will put more of an emphasis on strategy.
"It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen and keeping in mind their individual skills." the announcement says. "Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation, and the outcomes will depend on every decision you make. [...] Your subordinates aren’t just some resource; they are living people with their own strengths, weaknesses, fears and prejudices, and you'll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive."
The sequel's story will follow a new protagonist Lilly Reed who is the new sheriff of Sharpwood, a small, remote northern town that is plagued by smugglers and gangs and where corruption is rampant.
