Two Point Studios is a British company founded in July 2016 by Ben Hymers, Mark Webley, and Gary Carr, who had previously worked on such titles as Theme Hospital, the spiritual predecessor to Two Point Hospital, Black & White and the Fable series.
“We’re delighted to welcome Two Point Studios officially into the Sega family. As a relatively new, British-based developer with a global hit already under their belts, we knew we had to move quickly on this deal because they are an extremely attractive investment proposition with a great deal of talent,” Sega Europe president and chief operating officer Gary Dale said.
“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” said Mark Webley, Co-Founder of Two Point Studios. “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.”
We’re really excited to announce we are now officially part of the @SEGA clan!
You can bet your bottom this means new, exciting management sims coming from us!
