Double Fine has just announced that Psychonauts 2 will not be released in 2019. Instead, the game has been delayed until 2020 as the team is now targeting next year for release (the game will still remain a multi-platform game, despite the fact that Double Fine is now one of the first-party Xbox Game studios).
As Double Fine stated:
“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!”
Psychonauts 2 will carry on the legacy of Psychonauts in a meaningful and special way and Raz will hone his secret agent PSI-abilities—and learn new ones too—using them to solve mysteries and uncover evil plots.
The game will feature a new hub world inside Psychonauts HQ. Players will access new mental worlds as Raz peeks inside the minds of a host of new characters who need his help to combat their inner demons and unravel their deep-seated emotional issues.
