Two Point Hospital for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch delayed to first half of 2020

No longer due out in late 2019.

Two Point Hospital

The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch versions of Two Point Hospital have been delayed from their previously announced late 2019 release window to the first half of 2020, Sega announced.

“Our community have asked for Two Point Hospital on consoles for a while now and we want to make sure we deliver a game that can be enjoyed to the fullest on all platforms,” Two Point Studios game director Mark Webley said in a press release. “This means we will need a little bit more time to optimise the game to ensure the best possible experience across all platforms.”

In a blog post, Two Point Studios brand director Craig Laycock provided further information regarding the delay.

“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,” Laycock said. “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.”

Two Point Hospital is available now for PC.
