Surgeon Simulator 2 was another surprise announcement from the Game Awards 2019. Bossa Studios' sequel to its infamous operation sim is set to arrive in 2020, and it promises to "inject a delirious dose of adrenaline straight into the heart of the original, cranking everything up to a whole new level".

While haphazard surgery will remain at the heart of the game, it's said to be an expanded experience, offering "true co-operation". The trailer shows Bob's head passing through a strange medical facility. We see it travel via conveyor belt, bowling alley, and eventually a high-speed laundry cart.

The original game released all the way back in 2013. Similar to titles like Goat Simulator, it felt purpose-built to gain popularity among major YouTubers such as Markiplier and Jackscepticeye. Its intentionally wonky controls, comedic gore, and general ridiculousness propelled it on to become one of the most discussed games of that year.

Since then, it's been ported over to PS4, PSVR, Switch, iOS, and Android. Even now, it's still generating over 400k views per day on YouTube. AppSpy, our sister site, covered the mobile version at launch. You can see their thoughts in the video below.

If you can't wait to start smashing some ribcages and chucking some hearts, you can sign up right now to the game's newsletter for more info as it arrives. And you'll of course find the original Surgeon Simulator available for download now from both the App Store and Nintendo eShop.

It's probably safe to assume that Surgeon Simulator 2 will eventually make its way over to iOS and Android, though nothing is confirmed at the moment.
