Double Fine has announced that Psychonauts 2 will be no longer coming out in 2018. Double Fine currently has five full level teams working on the real world locations and brand new mental worlds. In addition, its full gameplay team is working on powers, platforming, puzzles, and combat.
As Double Fine stated:
“Now we are in full swing, we know a lot more about the size and scope of the game we are going to make, how long it will take us to make it, and the amount of time we need to make it be great. From those projections we know that Psychonauts 2 will not be shipping in 2018, like we originally estimated when we published the Fig campaign two years ago.”
Double Fine concluded that Psychonauts 2 will carry on the legacy of Psychonauts in a meaningful and special way. As such, the team needs a bit more time in order to further polish it and turn into something that Psychonauts fans will love.
Last but not least, Double Fine released a new report video that you can view below!
