We know that Xbox fans have been looking forward to the release of the psychological horror online co-op game Phasmophobia for a while now, but unfortunately it's just received a slight delay from August to October 2023.

In a message on Twitter, the development team explained that this was due to a "recent fire incident and unpredicted development issues", with the new plan being to release the console version in the week leading up to Halloween.

"Due to a recent fire incident in our office building and unpredicted development issues, our ability to test and develop has been significantly impacted. After careful consideration we have made the tough decision to delay the console release, initially set for August, while we get everything sorted.

We are now aiming for a special launch during the week leading up to Halloween this October. This gives us the needed time to perfect and fine-tune everything. Your patience and understanding mean everything to us, and we can't wait to bring Phasmophobia to consoles."

When it finally does arrive, we should be in for a treat on Xbox. Phasmophobia currently holds an "Overwhelmingly Positive" rating on Steam based on almost 500,000 user reviews, and it's still only in early access!

We'll throw more details about the game below, and you can watch the original Xbox trailer above.

"Phasmophobia is a 4-player, online co-op, psychological horror game. You and your team of paranormal investigators will enter haunted locations filled with paranormal activity and try to gather as much evidence as you can. Use your ghost-hunting equipment to find and record evidence to sell on to a ghost removal team."
