Two Point Hospital Delayed On PlayStation 4, Xbox One, And Nintendo Switch

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions of Two Point Hospital, the wacky hospital management sim that was released last year on PC, have been delayed until the first half of 2020. They were originally scheduled to arrive late 2019.

"So why the delay?" developer Two Point Studios said in a recent blog post. "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.

"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."

Two Point Hospital is a spiritual successor to the 1997 classic Theme Hospital, with former Bullfrog Productions alumni Gary Carr and Mark Webley, working on both. James Swinbanks praised the hospital management sim in GameSpot's Two Point Hospital review, saying "The exaggerated, cartoon look and relaxed approach to management make it inviting enough for most players, while the deeper aspects of its economy are enough to keep seasoned players engaged. Two Point Hospital not only re-works an old formula into something modern and enjoyable, it also iterates on the classic brand of irresistible charm and wit, making something that’s truly wonderful."

Two Point Hospital is available on PC now, with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions due out in early 2020.
