Double Fine Productions has announced that they need a bit more time to finish up Psychonauts 2 and thus are delaying it to 2020.
The game was slated to launch sometime in 2019 but that is no longer the case. Also even though Double Fine Productions is now part of Xbox Game Studios and Microsoft is publishing the game it will still launch on the PlayStation 4. You can read their statement about this delay below.
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!
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!
So there you have it! Look forward to Psychonauts 2 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2020. It will also be available day 1 on Xbox Game Pass.
