After some interesting teasers on social media this past week, involving a lightbulb, SEGA and Two Point Studios have announced Two Point Hospital, a new hospital-themed PC game. Take a look at the tongue-in-cheek announcement video, above.
If you don’t know, Two Point Studios is made up of gaming veterans from Bullfrog, Muckyfoot and Lionhead – as Bullfrog has a rich heritage of sim games, including Theme Hospital, you can see a fair amount of influence from Bullfrog’s old franchise and it looks like it’s meant to be a spiritual successor, of sorts.
I have to admit, I assumed that whatever Two Point Studios’ first game with SEGA was, it would be a mobile game. So (as a non-mobile gamer) I’m pretty happy to see this is coming to PC, via Steam and the SEGA Store. I’m also excited to get my hands on a new sim game like this – I loved the old ‘Theme‘ franchise (Theme Park, Theme Hospital etc.) and this looks to be quite a similar affair.

Two Point Hospital Announced Alongside Ground-Breaking Treatment for Light Headedness
SEGA Europe and Two Point Studios set to Light Up the World of Medicine in 2018
London, England – 16th January 2018 – SEGA Europe Ltd. and Two Point Studios today announced a revolutionary new treatment for ‘Light-Headedness’ in their newly revealed game, Two Point Hospital, coming to Steam in late 2018. In what ‘experts’ are describing as a ‘light bulb moment for completely fictional medicine’, the Farnham based studio are drawing plaudits for their inception of the ‘De-Lux Clinic’, which is being rolled out across Two Point County to tackle the recent epidemic of this filamentally flummoxing affliction.
Light-Headedness was first experienced by patient zero, known only as Trevor. You can follow the illuminating story of Trevor and his battle with this rare disease by watching our enlightening infomercial about Two Point Hospital here: <trailer link>
Two Point Hospital, inspired by and from the creators of Theme Hospital, is set to be a return to one of gaming’s most loved sim genres. Two Point Hospital draws on the experience of some the gaming industry’s most experienced and successful sim developers, who between them, in addition to Theme Hospital, have worked on titles like Black and White, Theme Park and Fable at studios including Bullfrog, Lionhead and Mucky Foot. Two Point Hospital will deliver a compelling experience packed with the humour, charm and replayability fans of the genre have come to expect.
“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 Vice President 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.”
