Double Fine Joins Xbox Studios, Shows Off New Psychonauts 2 Trailer

In an announcement that sure shocked me, Head of Xbox Studios, Matt Booty, took to the Microsoft E3 2019 Briefing stage today to announce that none other than Double Fine would be joining the growing roster of acquired studios.

Joining Matt on stage was the man himself, Tim Schafer, who looks suitably happy to be a part of a large (and very secure) family, after previously being partnered with the troubled Starbreeze for publishing of Psychonauts 2.

Speaking of which, he even brought along a new trailer for the future GOTY! Showing off polished and gorgeous in-game gameplay footage for the first time, Psychonauts 2 looks nothing short of pure hype. Check it out below:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
