Double Fine has confirmed Psychonauts 2 has been delayed to 2020.
Speaking in the game’s latest Fig backer update the studio discussed their E3 2019 announcements and trailers, including Microsoft publishing Psychonauts 2. Double Fine also released “Double Fine’s Psychonautical E3 2019” video on YouTube, which you can view above.
In the Fig update, Double Fine emphasized that they would honor all platforms previously agreed upon, including PlayStation 4.
“As you just saw, E3 kicked off with us sneaking into the Microsoft press briefing to adorn Phil Spencer in a Psychonauts shirt. We then snuck past Keanu to announce that we would be joining Xbox Game Studios, and that Psychonauts 2 would be published by Microsoft (instead of Starbreeze) as a first party title. Now, before anyone panics! We have confirmed that we will be able to honor Psychonauts 2 for every platform that we have already promised here, and that includes bringing the game to PlayStation 4!”
The announcement continued, explaining the game would now aim for a 2020 release.
“There really shouldn’t be too many other noticeable changes for you at all, at least not for a while…with one notable exception: We’re now targeting next year for release. We know it’s always disappointing when you have to wait a bit longer, but we also know that you are an amazing, supportive bunch, who – just like us – want the game to be as good as possible. So we’re hopeful you’ll understand! <3”
Psychonauts 2 will launch in 2020 for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
