Psychonauts 2 release pushed back 21 Dec, 2017 / 5 comments

I mean, I'm sure you saw the backer email, but in case you didn't, you heard it here first: Psychonauts 2 is now aiming for a 2019 release, a little later than had been originally speculated. You know, as Psychonauts games are wont to do.

DoubleFine said: "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."

It is what it is, and if this will give us that always sought-after extra polish then it's probably not a bad thing.

You can see the entire update, along with lots of behind-the-scenes information, and a whole festive video update on the completely public Fig project page.

    Probably worth adding a quote to provide some context:

    “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.

    And just like that, it magically appeared... IT'S ANOTHER MIRAAAACLE~!

    I'm hoping this delay came about because Mario Odyssey made them realize they couldn't possibly ship a modern platformer without adding a sombrero for the lead character to wear.

    For the record, I'm more than fine waiting an extra year for that sombrero.

    The payout on that bet was $0.000002.
