Sega is publishing a new Theme Hospital-inspired sim game called Two Point Hospital. It’s being developed by Two Point Studios and coming to PC this fall.
“We’re delighted to finally announce the fruits of our partnership with Two Point Studios and reveal Two Point Hospital to the world,” said John Clark, Executive VP of Publishing for SEGA Europe. “We’re committed to finding and working with the best new studios, ones that fit with SEGA’s ethos to deliver new IP with strong franchise potential. Two Point Studios’ vision for Two Point Hospital and their ambitions for it fit perfectly with that notion and we look forward to releasing their game later this year.”
Judging by the humorous trailer, Two Point Hospital will keep the funny charm of 1997’s Theme Hospital. Players have to run a hospital unit, keep staff happy, research cures, and deal with fictitious diseases.
Two Point Studios is made up of former developers from Lionhead, Mucky Foot, and Bullfrog, whose resume includes sim games Theme Hospital, Theme Park, and Startopia.
“Gary and I have been talking about this project for a number of years and are really excited to be announcing Two Point Studios’ first game” said Mark Webley, Co-Founder of Two Points Studios. Fellow Co-Founder Gary Carr added: “The amazing team we have managed to bring together, and our partnership with Sega, has really allowed this first part of our vision to finally come to fruition”.
Two Point Hospital will launch this fall on PC. You can sign up for the official newsletter to earn an exclusive in game item on launch.
