Double Fine Productions Joins Xbox Game Studios; First Psychonauts II Gameplay Trailer Debuts

A new studio has joined the ever-growing Xbox Game Studios, Psychonauts developer Double Fine Productions is now in the fold.  Plus, a new trailer their latest sequel.  Check it out here.

Last year, Xbox listened to the criticism from gamers that said that there weren’t enough Xbox exclusive titles.  So, they went to the drawing board and began making deals with some of gaming’s most well-known studios, like Ninja Theory.  During the Xbox E3 Briefing, Xbox announced that one more studio would be joining the ranks, Double Fine Productions.

After the exciting announcement, Xbox brought the beloved President of Double Fine Productions, Tim Schafer, who celebrated the announcement with a new gameplay trailer for Psychonauts II.

Psychonauts 2 tells the story of Razputin Aquato, a gifted acrobat with psychic powers, as he fulfills his life-long goal of becoming an international psychic super-spy. In other words, a Psychonaut. Raz joins the Psychonauts at a dangerous time: a mole has infiltrated the organization and is planning to resurrect history’s most cruelly powerful psychic villains. Not knowing who to trust, Raz must dive into the history of the Psychonauts, and that of his own family, to fight the demons of their shared past.

Psychonauts 2 is set to release in 2019 on PC and consoles.  Despite their newfound partnership with Xbox, Psychonauts 2 is also expected to release on PlayStation 4.
