After Microsoft’s acquisition of Double Fine a couple years ago, the developer reassured fans that Psychonauts 2 would at least still be headed to PS4. The release date and new trailer were revealed at the E3 2021 Microsoft and Bethesda showcase. Fans were expecting a release date to be announced soon after a pre-load recently went live for Psychonauts 2 on the Xbox Store. It’s still unclear if that pre-load was authentic or if those who purchased the game will need to download a different file come release day.
Microsoft acquiring Double Fine may not bode well for future games on PlayStation platforms, but it did allow the developer to put a lot of cut content back into Psychonauts 2 with the new injection of financial and development support that was given. Psychonauts 2 features a new song by Jack Black along with the prolific actor voicing a character within the game. PlayStation players will at least be able to reap those rewards, however, the Microsoft Bethesda showcased a number of titles, including Starfield, now confirmed as Xbox exclusive games following recent acquisitions by the platform.
After a number of delays, Psychonauts 2 is finally releasing on August 25th, 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
