We have good news: Tim Shafer, head of studio Double Fine, is set to release Psychonauts 2 in 2021. We learned about this through Twitter page studios. It’s worth recalling that Microsoft recently acquired Double Fine; better than that only Bethesda. Schaefer then said that Microsoft does not influence the development process in any way, plus now he will not have to constantly look for investments on the side. There is already a playable build for Psychonauts 2, it is “real and you will see it soon.” Among the English voice actors we will see Jack Black (actor, member of the rock band Tenacious D).
There is no exact release date for Psychonauts 2 yet. It’s better not to rush the studio, because fans have been waiting for the continuation of Psychonauts for many years, and the incident with Cyberpunk 2077 has not yet been forgotten. Recall that it was originally planned to release the sequel back in 2020.
Psychonauts 2 will be released on PC, Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Probably backward compatibility will be made for the next generation consoles.
