Hello console friends!
We have some news to share with you about the release of Sandbox Mode. As always, we’ll cut right to the chase – we’re going to need some more time to get the update with Sandbox Mode out to you. We know it’s not ideal, but we believe it’s the right thing to do.
You see, since the launch of Two Point Hospital across three platforms on console, we’ve had a huge amount of new players getting acquainted with the game and overwhelmingly enjoying it. But a small number of players have run into crashes, and a smaller few have even experienced save corruption. This is, of course, rather concerning for us and we’ve made it our number one priority for the console team to fix.
A couple of weeks ago we released a hotfix which resolved some of those crashes, but we can see from your reports and our internal data that there are some that still remain in the game. We’re working on that as we speak, a new update is currently being tested which contains fixes for a vast amount of crashes and the save data issues, which is why we need some more time to get Sandbox Mode ready to be released.
We believe fixing these issues before adding new content is what’s best for the game, and ultimately, you – the players!
Right now, there isn’t a specific release date for either Hotfix #2 or Sandbox Mode. We’re aiming to get the hotfix released as soon as possible, but we also can’t rush it out the door. We need to spend some time making sure it’s thoroughly tested, so you get only the best in-game experience.
We’ll keep you up to date on the progress of both until we have a solid release date. In the meantime, thank you for your support, keep on giving us your feedback and stay safe!
