Psychonauts 2 Picked Up By Publisher Starbreeze; Expected To Release In 2018
Psychonauts 2, the second entry in the series created by Double Fine, has been successfully funded some time ago, and it seems like things are only getting better for the game, as it has found a publisher that will help Double Fine releasing it on all platforms.
Today, publisher Starbreeze confirmed that they will be publishing Psychonauts 2 digitally on PC and consoles sometime next year. The publisher confirmed they will be able to recoup 100% of their investment and get a 60% share of the revenue.
Many of us gamers who’ve grown up during 70’s and 80’s have at some point come across the great games from Double Fine and Tim Schafer. Games like Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Brütal Legend are all in the list of personal all time favorites for many of us.
We’re very proud to be able to add this prominent collaboration to our Publishing business. Starbreeze is looking forward to support Double Fine in bringing the new and exciting game Psychonauts 2 to young and old gamers world wide.
Double Fine's CEO Tim Schafer is definitely happy about the publishing deal, as the Starbreeze's expertise will be a great benefit.
"Starbreeze is the perfect partner for Double Fine and our backers on Psychonauts 2. Their expertise in not just developing and publishing games, but supporting them after launch will be a great benefit for players of the game."
Psychonauts 2 launches on PC and consoles sometime next year.
