Hold Up, Why Is Psychonauts 2 Already Available To Download?

Update: Just around an hour after it went live, Microsoft appears to have already pulled the ability to pre-load Psychonauts 2 via the Xbox mobile app. We'll keep an eye out for any further developments!


Original story: Double Fine's highly-anticipated Psychonauts 2 has yet to receive a release date, so it's a massive surprise to see that not only has it appeared on the Microsoft Store, but it's available to download right now.

You can't download it via console, but through the Xbox mobile app as shown below:

We're assuming you can't actually access the game yet - even after downloading it - but the very fact that the full game has been uploaded to the Microsoft Store suggests a release is imminent, which is a definite surprise.

Pure Xbox can confirm that attempting to download the game via the Xbox app pushes it to your console, and it has a download size of around 27GB on Xbox Series X. Let's hope we get a shadow drop in the very near future!
