31 March 2022 - Drug Dealer Manager, a 3D crime tycoon from Movie Games, was just announced on Steam with a gameplay trailer. The game, developed by Movie Games' internal studio Exiles Studio, will let you take over an American metropolis and become the cartel king. Drug Dealer Manager is planned to be released in 2022.

Claw your way to the top in the ruthless world of gangs. Hire carriers, dealers, triggermen, and spies. Establish routes for your couriers. Buy or take over buildings and set up your bases of operations. Drug Dealer Manager will let you in on the business side of crime

The game’s unique mechanics use information as one of the available weapons. Collect dirt on the people who threaten your operation. Use your knowledge as leverage in negotiations. Pay off the cops so they look the other way and shape your public image as a paragon of the local community. 

Grow your reputation and become a brand among the city’s nightlifers. But remember: the more powerful you become, the more people will want to take you down.

Drug Dealer Manager is the second crime game from Movie Games, following the 2020 hit Drug Dealer Simulator. This expanding Drug Dealer universe lets you taste the life of crime from unique and fascinating angles. Drug Dealer Manager is set for a 2022 release.

  • Comprehensive tycoon gameplay with unique criminal mechanics
  • Huge and detailed custom-designed 3D map of the city
  • More than 2000 interactive buildings realized in a unique art style
  • Information as a resource: collect rumours and dig in the past to get rid of your competitors
