With all sympathies to the gamers who were waiting for the Psychonauts 2 to roll out, Double Fine has come up with a sad news. The game is delayed for a long long time keeping in mind the scope planned for the game. God knows what the developers thought at the time of releasing the deadline in the first place. Anyway, the game will take at least 1 year or even more to feature all those scenes that the developers have thought for the game.
Team Working With Full Flames
It isn’t like the developing studios has become lazy or any other external factor has influenced them, rather, the Psychonauts 2’s Fig page says that according to Double Fine, there are “five full level teams” which are “working on the real-world locations and brand new mental worlds.”
The blog post by Double Fin addresses the time frame that it will now take to roll out the Psychonauts 2 and according to it, we’ll have to wait till at least 2019 to see the game in action. Here’s a quote from the blog post:
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.
Double fine knows how many hearts it has broken by delaying the game and has even apologized for disappointing the audience. The audience has to understand that:
They want a game that carries on the legacy of Psychonauts in a meaningful and special way. We’re making great progress, but we want to make sure the game has the time it needs to shine.
