At that time, the company presented the idea to the crowdfunding platform. Fig. The project raised $ 3.3 million. During development, however, Microsoft acquired Double Fine and integrated it into Xbox Games Studios. Now Microsoft is releasing Double Fine’s Action Adventure. This led to the game appearing during the Xbox E3 presentation in 2019 – although this will not affect the release of Psychonauts 2 on other platforms.
The game was originally slated to launch in 2019, but Double Fine delayed it to polish the experience. Microsoft’s financial support made this possible.
