Psychonauts 2 Developer Already Working On Multiple New Projects

Double Fine's Psychonauts 2 has undoubtedly been one of the biggest success stories of 2021 for Xbox (Phil Spencer even suggested it was "probably" his game of the year), but now the team is switching its focus to new projects.

In an update on Fig (as highlighted by VGC), it was explained that Psychonauts 2 has "essentially wrapped up as a project", and now the studio is splitting into teams to work on different projects "that we think you'll enjoy."

"Psychonauts 2 has essentially wrapped up as a project although there will be tweaks and fixes as we move forward. The studio is already splitting up into various teams and starting different projects that we think you’ll enjoy. We like experimentation here at Double Fine. Every game is a chance to explore new ideas, new visual styles or gameplay, emotions, and more."

The message from Double Fine went on to say that the team members "think the pay off was pretty great" with Psychonauts 2, stating that they "stuck the landing". We certainly agree, having given it a coveted 10/10 earlier this year!

Double Fine's main focus now in regards to Psychonauts 2 is to get the remaining Fig rewards shipped out to backers, which has faced some issues up until now due to COVID-19 related issues:

"Our focus moves to these new projects but we’re also intensely tracking incoming support tickets sent our way and working with distributors to get folks their rewards as soon as our strange world allows. These are still somewhat uncertain times where even something like paper can be in short supply and affect production of goods. As the year ends, I hope each of you get to enjoy some rest and comfort with family and friends."
