Two Point Studios has joined the Sega family. Sega Europe today announced that it has acquired the Farnham-based developer of Two Point Hospital.
Two Point Hospital launched last August to impressive sales and positive reviews. It was the debut title from Two Point, which was founded in 2016 by Mark Webley, Gary Carr, and Ben Hymers.
The light-hearted hospital simulation was familiar ground for Webley and Carr, who viewed the game as a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital, a title they worked on together at Bullfrog more than 20 years ago. It was intended to be the first in a franchise of simulation games sharing a similar tone and set in the fictitious Two Point County.
"It's a landmark step for Two Point Studios and we're thrilled to be joining the Sega family," Webley said. "We're looking forward to executing the next phase of our plans as we continue to evolve Two Point County. It's a hugely exciting time to be a part of Two Point and we are here today thanks to the hard work, passion and dedication of our small, but amazingly talented team here in Farnham and the incredible fans that have supported us throughout and guided our continued development of Two Point Hospital."
