Not so long ago we’ve shared the news about Two Point Hospital’s plans to extend its reach into the console market. Originally. the release of the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch was planned for this fall, however, the developers changed their minds and pushed back the date to 2020.

The reason behind the delay is a common one. The developers need more time to get things right. Here’s what the team wrote in its official blog post:

“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.

So, we’re going to take a bit longer to get that right. We expect a new release date for Two Point Hospital Console to be in the first half of 2020 and we’ll be sure to keep you right up to date with our progress.”

The first half of 2020 doesn’t sound very encouraging since it’s a pretty big window. The game might be released in January, though, it might as well come sometime in June. However, porting a game such as this is always a challenge so we have to stay patient. Having in mind that the team is working not only on the core game but also on all of its DLCs as well, we can forgive a slight change of plans.

However, if its too much waiting time for you, don’t hesitate to check our deal for the PC version of Two Point Hospital.
