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.
“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.”
At present, Sega has revealed that two more games in the Two Point universe are in the making post-acquisition. What exactly those games will be, however, remains to be seen.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
