To say that people have been looking forward to Psychonauts 2 for a long time would be a bit of an understatement. Thankfully, though the platformer has been delayed a few times, developer Double Fine Productions has reiterated on a couple of occasions that Psychonauts 2 is not getting delayed again– it is definitely coming out in 2021.
But when exactly? A specific release date is yet to be announced, but we may possibly know what that’s going to be be. As spotted by a ResetEra user, in Steam’s list of upcoming games, when sorting the list by release dates, Psychonauts 2 is tucked between games releasing on August 25, suggesting that Double Fine’s platformer, too, might launch on that date. Of course, this might just be a placeholder date in Steam’s database (though it’s worth noting that until not that long ago, the game had a placeholder December 31 release date on the storefront), so don’t take this as confirmation just yet.
Recent reports have suggested that Psychonauts 2 is going to have a presence at E3 2021, so it’s possible that the game’s release date gets announced there. Either way, whenever it launches, Psychonauts 2 will be available for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
