Psychonauts 2, the sequel to Double Fine’s cult hit platformer, was successfully funded through Fig almost two years ago. At the time, it was scheduled to release in the third quarter of 2018, but it seems we’ll have to wait at least a bit longer before we can see the continued adventures of Raz and the gang.

Double Fine say they’ve ramped into full production, and that means “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.”
So we’ll be waiting at least until 2019, but how much longer? “We do know about how long it’s going to take,” says project lead Zak McClendon in the update video, “but we don’t really want to say anything until we can get a firm date for people.”
That video also goes into detail on the process of recreating Raz’s family for their place in the new game, offering a slightly more detailed look at what to expect. In case you missed it, October saw the first Psychonauts 2 gameplay footage released.
