Psychonauts 2 has been a long time coming. During E3 2019 Microsoft acquired Double Fine Productions, the team behind the game. This left everyone with some questions about whether or not a Psychonauts 2 PS4 Release is still on the way, given that Microsoft now owns the publishing rights to the game.
Luckily, Double Fine has confirmed on Twitter that the game will still be coming to PS4.

Microsoft announced during their E3 2019 Showcase that they had acquired Double Fine Productions. Originally, the game was being published by Starbreeze; however, after the failure of Overkill’s The Walking Dead on PC the company is now in deep trouble and might not be around in 12 months time.
Now, Microsoft will be publishing the title after purchasing the publishing rights from Starbreeze prior to the acquisition of Double Fine Productions.
