Fans of the Two Point Hospital title can expect the Superbug Initiative update to release sometime soon as it’s currently in the beta phase.
“It’s a landmark step for Two Point Studios and we’re thrilled to be joining the Sega family(…)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.” – Mark Webley, Co-founder of Two Point Studios
