Double Fine offered an update on the possible 2021 debut of Psychonauts 2. Which is namely a confirmation that yes, the sequel will launch this year. The company took to Twitter to note it is already playable and on schedule.
Here’’ is the exact statement. It noted while it isn’t time to announce a Psychonauts 2 release date yet, it will appear in 2021.
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.

As a reminder, Double Fine started its Fig crowdfunding campaign for Psychonauts back in 2015 and asked for $3.3 million. It ended up raising $3,829,024 from 24,109 people by January 12, 2016. It originally had a 2018 launch window, but ended up delayed. At E3 2019, we saw gameplay for the game for the first time, which will again be an action adventure title that picks up where the original game left off. In July 2020, Double Fine noted it would launch in 2021.
Psychonauts 2 will come to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021.
