Starbreeze Studios, who is responsible for publishing Payday 2, is signing up to publish Psychonauts 2.
The studio will invest $8 Million USD to Psychonauts 2, to bring it to the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC in 2018. After publishing, the studio will take %60 of all profits made by the game, while Tim Schafer’s development studio, Double Fine, will retain the rights to the IP.
All of the news comes from a gameplay video released earlier this morning. So far, the game looks incredible given the short development window the game has had. Psychonauts 2 survives because of its crowd-funding campaign on Fig, accumulating more than $3.8 Million towards the development.
Psychonauts 2 releases in 2018 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
