Psychonauts Sequel Delayed Past 2018

Psychonauts 2, the story sequel to Double Fine's 2005 psychic platformer, has been delayed past its planned 2018 release, Double Fine confirmed today.

In the newest update video, Double Fine founder Tim Schafer and the game's project lead Zak McClendon talked about finishing the first playable build for the game. After completing the build and realizing the size and scope of the game, McClendon made the determination to delay the game past its original scheduled release timing of late 2018.

No new release date was given, just that the game will no longer be coming out in 2018. “We do know about how long it’s going to take but we don’t want to say anything until we have a firm date for people,” McClendon said. 

You can check the update video below, which includes new art and talk about the characters and world of Psychonauts 2 after the discussion of the delay. Psychonauts 2 is intended to be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
