Sega Buys Over Two Point Hospital Devs

Gaming giant Sega has recently taken over Two Point Studios, the makers of the indie hit Two Point Hospital, as part of Sega Europe’s Searchlight initiative.

The Searchlight initiative is Sega’s approach to source for new talent to bolster their ranks.

The England-based team of just 17 is the first such acquisition to have come out of the Searchlight initiative, after the critical and commercial success of the hospital simulator.

They will join the likes of Creative Assembly (the Total War series) and Relic Entertainment (the Warhammer: Dawn of War series) under the Sega umbrella.

“It’s a landmark step for Two Point Studios and we’re thrilled to be joining the Sega family,” commented Mark Webley, co-founder of Two Point Studios.

“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.”
