Two Point Hospital delayed, now releasing the first half of 2020

It's not an emergency, just a delay!

Two Point Hospital was originally planned to be released during the last half of 2019. Now, an official statement has been released from Two Point Studios announcing a minor delay for the upcoming title. A finalized release date has yet to be given, but we can look forward to the game in the first half of 2020. Check out the full statement from Two Point Studios' Craig Laycock below:

…we’re going to need a bit more time

A big hello to you, the fine folks in our community.

We’ll cut to the chase: we’re going to delay the release of Two Point Hospital on console to the first half of 2020 to make it the best it can possibly be.

As you no doubt know, we’ve been beavering away hard at work on Two Point Hospital with our pals at Red Kite Games, who have been doing a great job working with us on the transition of Two Point Hospital over to console.

We invited press to come into the studio and get hands on with the game not too long ago, and they loved the direction we were heading in, especially with the revamped control scheme, redesigned for console platforms.

We also showcased the game at Gamescom, with hands-on playable code on the show floor, which went down well with hundreds of players. It was exciting and rewarding to see so many people getting hands on with the game.

All of that reaction has been fantastic to see, and it’s just another reason why we really care about getting the final release right.

So why the delay? Put simply: making a management simulation game on three consoles (and making it the best it possibly can be on all three), is a tricky programming puzzle.

We have to take the game apart and figure out how to fit it into what is essentially a smaller box. That takes a fair amount of time and engineering work, and it turns out we need to take a little more to iron out the remaining creases.

So, we’re going to take a bit longer to get that right. We expect a new release date for Two Point Hospital Console to be in the first half of 2020 and we’ll be sure to keep you right up to date with our progress.

We know you’ll be a bit disappointed by this news, but hopefully you understand why we’re doing it: quality is the most important thing and we want you to have the very best experience.

We’ll be sure to show you more soon,

Your friends @ Two Point Studios

Two Point Hospital is Coming to Switch in Late 2019

The doctor will see you later this year

London, England – July 23, 2019 - SEGA® Europe Ltd. and Two Point Studios™ are thrilled to announce that after an exceedingly successful PC launch in August 2018, the critically acclaimed management sim, Two Point Hospital is coming to Sony PlayStation® 4, Microsoft Xbox® One and Nintendo™ Switch, both physically and digitally, late 2019. Celebrate this news with Dr. Clive Marmalade as he gives you a tour around Two Point County: https://youtu.be/GjIk16rGrYU

In the atypical and engrossing world of Two Point Hospital you, the hospital administrator, must deal with many tricky situations on a daily basis, taking on varied challenges and demonstrating your ability to build, cure and improve in the hardest and strangest circumstances. Running a hospital empire can be – often literally – a messy business. So, make sure to train your staff and deal with their wide-ranging personality traits if you want to defeat the healthcare competition of Two Point County, and don't worry if you can't save every patient, ghost capturing janitors are here to help!

Since its successful PC release, Two Point Hospital has seen a wide-range of new features added to the game thanks, in part, to a lot of great community feedback. Many of these features, such as Interior Designer, copy-paste room layouts and character customisation will all be included for the console launch later this year. Players will even be able to experience the recently added expansions 'Bigfoot', set in a snowy region and 'Pebberley Island', where you tackle new challenges in the tropics. Two Point Hospital will be fully rebuilt for console gaming, with controls that brilliantly work for playing on the go or with a controller in hand.

"Bringing Two Point Hospital to console is something we always envisioned when starting up Two Point Studios in 2016", said Mark Webley, Game Director at Two Point Studios. "Our community's number one question since launch has been: 'when is Two Point Hospital coming to consoles?'. Well, it is happening and we are very excited."
