Two Point Hospital, the spiritual successor of beloved management sim Theme Hospital, has been delayed on consoles till 2020.

Sega previously announced the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions would be out by late 2019, but developer Two Point Studios has delayed the title due to the tricky business of bringing it to three consoles.

In a blog post, the studio wrote: ‘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 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.’

They add: ‘We know you’ll be 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.’

The console versions are now slated to be released in ‘the first half of 2020’, which hopefully won’t place it in the incredibly crowded month of March alongside Doom Eternal, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Watch Dogs: Legion and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The PC version was released last autumn and the console versions will include all the same features, along with everything that’s been added in updates since then – such as an interior designer and character customisation.

You’ll also get the expansions Bigfoot and Pebberley Island too, which add snowy and tropical backdrops and all the fictional diseases they cause.

The British developer consists of many people who worked on the original Theme Hospital at now defunct developer Bullfrog – who also created management sim Theme Park.

Two Point Hospital releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2020.
