It’s been the number one request since the original announce of Two Point Hospital…
“Is Two Point Hospital coming to console?”
Well, we’re over the moon to say that Two Point Hospital is coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!
Not only that, it’s going to include two great expansions for free – Bigfoot and Pebberley Island – and will benefit from a load of great free updates released for the PC version since launch too.
We’ve also designed an intuitive, quick and precise control scheme from the ground up that’ll make building your hospitals more satisfying than ever.

Included in the console version
Included you’ll find two great expansions (Bigfoot, Pebberley Island) and a load of free updates.
Bigfoot and Pebberley Island add three additional hospitals each to the game, meaning the console version includes:
- 21 hospitals
- A breathtaking 119 illnesses!
When we released Two Point Hospital on PC we were blown away by the reaction from press and our incredible community. We were over the moon to see that so many people were enjoying our game, and only too happy to make tweaks in response to fantastic feedback.
As a result of that feedback, we’ve added loads of quality of life updates, new features and new content (that’s propelled our user reviews to a recent 97% on Steam), including features like copy-paste rooms and customisation, and you’ll find those updates bundled into this version.
Why are we making this now?
We’ve always wanted to make a console version of Two Point Hospital, right from before we’d even founded the studio. We have a really broad audience of players, from hardcore simulation management fans who love to min-max their hospitals, all the way through to people who play on pause and love to design the most beautiful hospital they can.
Every time we see people play Two Point Hospital on PC they have a great time with the game, and we’re always asked – “can I play it in the living room with my kids?”, or “can I play it on the train?”
For the train and living room squads, hopefully this will help! Be sure to tell us on Twitter if it does! @2pointhospital
I’m so hungry for more information that I can barely sit down!
Good news! Well, not about your posture. We’ll be running a series of blogs for hungry news-eaters like yourself in the next few days, right here on TwoPointStudios.com. We’ll be updating the below list with links as they are published.
