Originally Planned For E3 2020
For fans of Double Fine, the news of E3 being cancelled followed with the disappointment of not being able to see the long-awaited Psychonauts 2 in action for the first time. The team had promised that the prepared segment was going to be “beautiful, exciting, psychedelic,” which only added more to the sadness of the cancellation. Thankfully, however, Tim Schafer, the founder of Double Fine, has confirmed a rescheduling for the reveal: July edition of Inside Xbox!
This came as a confirmation after the Xbox stream yesterday which hinted at this might be happening, and sure enough, today Schafer uploaded a video on youtube to discuss. He said, “As our good pal Matt Booty announced yesterday on Inside Xbox 20/20, there will be an Xbox Game Studios focussed showcase in July, and Psychonauts 2 will be a part of it, oh yes!”
Take a look at the video above for an entertaining update on Psychonauts 2, where Tim Schafer catches you up to more than just the news of the gameplay reveal. It gives a very intimate look into the dev team and their everyday lives.
For fans of Psychonauts, this game has been a long time coming. We hope that there won’t be any additional delays to the sequel of an absolutely classic of a game.
