Phasmophobia ports for Xbox Series X|S and PS5 get delayed


Kinetic Games has announced a delay for the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 ports of Phasmophobia.

The Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 ports will forgo the previously planned August release for one sometime this fall – just in time for Halloween, in October.

Phasmophobia was originally released for Windows PC (via Steam) back in September 2020. The PS5 version will support PlayStation VR2, and both console ports will have crossplay.

Here’s the full message from Kinetic Games:

Dear Phasmophobia Community,

First and foremost, we’d like to thank you all for your support and that you are just as excited as we are for the console release.

Due to a recent fire incident in our office building and unpredicted development issues, our ability to test and develop has been significantly impacted.

After careful consideration we have made the tough decision to delay the console release, initially set for August, while we get everything sorted. We are now aiming for a special launch during the week leading up to Halloween this October. This gives us the needed time to perfect and fine-tune everything. Your patience and understanding mean everything to us, and we can’t wait to bring Phasmophobia to consoles.

The Phasmophobia Development Team.
