Psychonauts 2 is the sequel to the cult classic from 2005 Psychonauts. The game was developed by Double Fine Productions, who you might know from other cult classics like Brutal Legends, Costume Quest and many more. Double Fine has built a reputation on making hilarious and unique games since the companies inception all the way back in 2000. The studio has been quite the buzz lately since the announcement during Xbox’s E3 2019 conference that the studio had been added to the ever growing Xbox Game Studio’s family. We got a brand new look at Psychonauts 2 during Xbox’s conference as well which drove fan hype to the max. Today, Double Fine gave an update via Psychonauts 2 Fig page on when we could expect to get Psychonauts 2 in our hands. The developers had this to say in regards to the release date of the game.
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!
While this announcement may be disappoint to some fans, after many disastrous launches the past few years from games that should have been delayed. It is safe to say that this delay will only give Double Fine more time to put their signature style and polish on the game. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available in the upcoming months about Psychonauts 2.
