Hotel Architect launches in 2024 via early access

Hotel Architect

Publisher Wired Productions and developer Pathos Interactive have announced a release window for Hotel Architect, their hotel tycoon sim.

Hotel Architect will launch sometime later in 2024 for Windows PC (via Steam) via early access, though a firm release date wasn’t confirmed.

“The Pathos team are a pleasure to work with and the journey into Early Access will be a unique one for Wired,” Leo Zullo, Managing Director of Publisher Wired Productions said. “But we really encourage the community to join and help shape the game even more. I know I can’t wait to add a nightclub with banging music into the hotels.“

Pathos Interactive co-founder and CEO Accel Sjöström added, “After several years of silent development, we are thrilled to finally show what we’ve been working on! Everyone at Pathos has done a great job in getting all systems and content in place, making Hotel Architect the five-star hotel game we have always envisioned. But the journey doesn’t end here! There are many fun ways in which we can expand our hotel concept, and the best way of doing this is with the help of a great player community. Therefore, I believe an early access release will suit Hotel Architect perfectly.”

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
