Sega has come forward with a potential Phantasy Star Online 2 PC release window. People will be able to find it via the Microsoft Store in late May 2020, and it will again be free-to-play. Cross-play will also apparently be immediately available when it launches. [Thanks, Forbes!]

When the Phantasy Star Online 2 localization was announced back at E3 2019 during the Microsoft media briefing, only the Xbox One version was really confirmed for North America. However, at the time, Microsoft Executive Vice-President of Gaming Phil Spencer did suggest that it would eventually be coming to other platforms outside of Japan as well. Later, once the closed beta was announced and the official website was in full swing, manual information suggested that a Phantasy Star Online 2 PC version would end up coming to Steam.

As for the Xbox One version, it appears official service is about to begin. It might even start on April 15, 2020. An in-game notice confirmed service would begin after the April 14, 2020 maintenance ended. Early in the morning today, the official Twitter account said people should look for more information “tomorrow,” suggesting a full announcement could arrive on April 15th or 16th.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is immediately available on the Xbox One in North America.
