Psychonauts 2 Will Be Published by Starbreeze, New Videos Features Some Gameplay

Starbreeze Publishing (Dead by Daylight) announced today that they’ll be publishing Double Fine’s Psychonauts 2, following an $8 million investment. In its Fig campaign last year, Psychonauts 2 raised more than $3.8 million. With the investment, Starbreeze will bring Psychonauts 2 to “PC and other console platforms through digital distribution” in 2018. Provided the Fig details are still accurate, you can expect a Q3 2018 launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. As part of the deal, Starbreeze becomes the major investor in Psychonauts 2, and “will be able to recoup 100% of its full investment including marketing costs with an initial revenue share of 85% after distribution and platform fees and Fig crowdfunding revenue share.” Once Starbreeze makes back the initial investment, their share of revenues will go down to 60%. Double Fine still retains 100% of the IP. Double Fine CEO Tim Schafer said: 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. To coincide with today’s announcement, Double Fine released three new videos, and they all include a look at some Psychonauts 2 gameplay. If READ FULL STORY…
