Few games so completely dominated the early era of gaming-centric YouTube as Surgeon Simulator, an incredibly silly game that let players perform less-than-accurate surgery on helpless patients. Filled with endless laughs, it was a great surprise to see Surgeon Simulator get a full-blown sequel with Surgeon Simulator 2: Access All Areas, which was released as an Epic Games Store exclusive. Today, Bossa Studios, the team behind the original Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread, has announced that Surgeon Simulator 2 is finally leaving its Epic-flavored exclusivity in favor of a wider launch on more platforms.

Surgeon Simulator 2, complete with all of its past updates and content additions, is finally heading to more platforms on Sept. 2, 2021.

The game will be Optimized for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S with up to 4K visuals and 60 FPS. Surgeon Simulator 2 will also support Xbox Smart Delivery, meaning it's heading to last-gen Xbox One consoles.

If you're not familiar with Surgeon Simulator 2, the game lets up to four players complete a series of challenges, which usually involves performing very inaccurate surgery on a poor victim — I mean, patient. Surgeon Simulator 2 is all about goofy, mindless fun, and it delivers in spades (especially if you play with some good friends).

Surgeon Simulator 2 is already available to wishlist on Steam, with some exclusive in-game cosmetics up for grabs if enough people hit that "Wishlist" button. Bossa Studio's latest non-simulator launches on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and more PC platforms on Sept. 2, 2021, and could be one of the best Xbox games if it nails its in-your-face comedy and co-op gameplay.
