Psychonauts 2 was a surprise addition to the Xbox Games Showcase last year. We’ve had to wait a long time for the sequel to the original Xbox platforming masterpiece. Now it appears that we might have to wait a bit longer, but the game is still coming in 2021. Double Fine put out their Holiday Update 2020 video out on YouTube, you can watch that below.
The game is nearly finished and almost all of it’s levels are complete according to the video. The COVID-19 pandemic is the culprit as to why we didn’t get the game last year. Like everything else, it’s onset delayed almost the entire entertainment industry. So, I feel fortunate that we’re getting the game at all.
Like the issues with Cyberpunk 2077 and crunching the staff working on the game, Psychonauts 2 and Double Fine are looking to avoid that. The studio has been working from home on Zoom, so the game is taking a bit longer.
The first game, Psychonauts combined action-platforming with a mind-bending story. It was a smash hit on the Xbox, but it hasn’t gotten a sequel until now. Double Fine doesn’t have a set release date for the game other than it’s coming out later this year. It’ll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and macOS.
So, are you looking forward to Psychonauts 2? What other games are you looking forward to in 2021?
