Capitalism II is the sequel to the business simulation video game Capitalism. It was created by Enlight and published by Ubisoft in 2001.

Capitalism II in-game.

The player creates and controls a business empire. This in-depth strategy game covers almost every aspect of business that could be encountered in the real world, including marketing, manufacturing, purchasing, importing and retailing. It has two new campaigns (Capitalist Campaign and Entrepreneur Campaign) plus an in-depth tutorial.

The gameplay is very similar to the original version. One noticeable difference from Capitalism I is that there are fewer products derived from agricultural resources.

Capitalism II will run on modern versions of Microsoft Windows whereas the previous versions would not.

Capitalism II has also been ported to Mac OS X by Virtual Programming.

A new expanded version of Capitalism II, called Capitalism Lab, was released on December 14, 2012.[1] Capitalism Lab has many new features, improvements and a new concept of challenge games.[2]
