Psychonauts fans rejoice! The long-awaited sequel, Psychonauts 2, has now gone gold and is on its final approach for its August 25th release date. The game will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Xbox Series X/S. The only platform the title will not release on is PS5 following Microsoft’s acquisition of the developer Double Fine.



The story continues on from the VR release, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, as they return to headquarters to find out there is a mole planning to bring Maligula, a murderous psychic villain, back to life. Raz and the gang need to find and stop the mole before the plan can be executed.
