Sega announced today that the quirky hospital management sim Two Point Hospital will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on 25th February 2020. Depending on how eager you are to get it, you can now pre-order on PS4 and Xbox One, but now Switch for some reason.
At the time, Two Point Studios said it was a simple case of wanting to ensure the game is as polished as possible.
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 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.
Two Point Hospital originally came out for PC in August 2018, immediately gaining a following among the ageing Theme Hospital fanbase. With fun and friendly hospital management and tons of quirky diseases to diagnose and cure, it got the basics spot on, but continued to improve through a number of updates and expansions.
When it lands on console, you’ll be stepping into the weird world of Two Point County, creating hospitals dedicated to curing the 119 wacky illnesses. Features from PC updates like the Interior Designer, copy and pasting room layouts and character customisation will all be included in the console releases, as will the snowy Bigfoot and tropical Pebberley Island expansions. It’s all being tweaked and tuned to work as well as possible on a gamepad.
Here’s hoping the game doesn’t suffer any more unexpected delays, because it’s rather delightful on PC. In our Two Point Hospital review, Dom wrote, “There are few games that can boast the level of personality and humour that Two Point Hospital does while still giving you something serious to sink your time into. For anyone with fond memories of Theme Hospital, this is the silly hospital management sim you’ve been waiting for.”
