Psychonauts 2 Launches August 25, Available On Xbox Game Pass

Xbox-Bethesda's E3 2021 press conference finally revealed Psychonauts 2's release date, which is pinned to August 25.


The release date for developer Double Fine's highly anticipated action-platformer Psychonauts 2 was finally revealed during Xbox-Bethesda's E3 2021 presentation. The game launches August 25 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, as well as Game Pass on the same day.

Double Fine dropped a new story trailer for Psychonauts 2, showcasing the various abilities and locations players will experience when the game drops. We even get a glimpse of some of the bosses, as well as mechanics that change the game's perspective from 3D to 2D and back.

Announced in 2015, Psychonauts 2 suffered several delays before hitting its new release date. The game was funded via crowdsourcing, accruing nearly $4 million for development. Though Double Fine was purchased by Xbox in 2019, Psychonauts 2 is still launching on PlayStation consoles.

Xbox-Bethesda's conference was peppered with other announcements, including the reveal and release date confirmation for Starfield.
