“But it is real. It is playable. It is coming,” the tweet ends.
And yes, Psychonauts 2 is this year and yes I’ve been mentioning that here and elsewhere for a while but no I can’t tell you when because someone from THE COMPANY would arrange for a mysterious “cactus accident” to happen to me…
But it is real. It is playable. It is coming.

This will be great news for all Psychonauts fans who have been waiting patiently for a sequel for more than a decade now. The 2005 original is currently 50% off on Steam, if you’re yet to give Double Fine’s debut platformer a go.
Psychonauts 2 was previously pegged to launch in 2019, and then 2020, before slipping to 2021 as per an Xbox Wire blog post in July 2020. Thankfully, it seems that won’t be the case again.
