After teasing the game on social media, Sega and Two Point Studios has revealed Two Point Hospital, a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital.
The game is due to release on PC in late 2018, and is much what you'd expect from a Theme Hospital follow-up. Judging by the trailer, the game features the same funny and dark tone of that series. Former developers from that franchise, in addition to talent from Bullfrog, Lionhead and Mucky Foot, are working on the project.
"We're delighted to finally announce the fruits of our partnership with Two Point Studios and reveal Two Point Hospital to the world," Sega Europe EVP of Publishing John Clark said.
"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."
Two Points co-founder Mark Webley added: "Gary and I have been talking about this project for a number of years and are really excited to be announcing Two Point Studios' first game.
Fellow co-founder Gary Carr added: "The amazing team we have managed to bring together, and our partnership with Sega, has really allowed this first part of our vision to finally come to fruition."
