Double Fine Productions is finally on the verge of releasing Psychonauts 2. The company behind it however have has had quite a unfortunate run when it comes to publishers. The debut title Psychonauts was Dropped by Microsoft before being picked up and released by Majesco. Another title Brutal legend was dropped when Vendi games merged with Activision, and even EA had a crack.
Now Double Fine Productions are getting ready to release Psychonauts 2. Although their current publisher, Starbreeze Studios is also in a bit of financial trouble themselves. Starbreeze are the studio behind Payday 2 and Overkill’s The Walking Dead.
The founder of Double Fine Productions Tim Shafer recently said “We’ve survived for a long time because we’re very nimble and are able to shift when something like that happens. We have a very committed team. When Psychonauts 1 was cancelled, the team was just focused on making a good game and continued to work even though we didn’t know where the rest of the money would come from.”
Psyhconauts 2 is shaping up to look like a great game so, Lets hope it all works out for them.
