Tim Schafer is ready to develop Psychonauts 2.

Im ready to do it. Id love to do it. Its really a question of getting a publisher whos interested in doing it. Over the years its gotten into the hands of a lot of people, through being two dollars on Steam for a while, and being pirated. So its gotten out there. So if all these people were going to buy the sequel it would be a big hit.

YES!

I hope the controls are better, though.

Wonder if it'll start with that kidnapping?

And I wonder if he'll do a Bag of Spilling for Raz (somehow, I don't know how. I mean, beating the game required every power), let him keep all the powers and add new ones, or introduce a new protag.

Just because all the powers were required last time 'round doesn't mean they will be this time.

Think of how Banjo-Tooie did it. Yes, you still had all your old powers, but they weren't always useful anymore—you needed to find new ones.

Yeah, Raz should keep all his old powers and get new ones. What do you speculate the story will be lik?

A Wii version would be interesting. You could point and psi-blast, grab and fling stuff in a manner similar to but better than Crystal Chronicles, etc.

The Wii would probably be the right console to put it on, in addition to the PC, is what I'm saying.

Uh...just because he wants to doesn't mean he will or can. That's not news that he wants to make another Psychonauts. He also wants to make another Brutal Legend, but it's still not coming out.

He WANTED to a year ago.

Now he's READY to, which means a whole different thing. "Okay, my dev team has nothing to do. Send us money and we'll start work."

That doesn't mean "Psychonauts 2 is ready to go" and the problems with the sequel had nothing to do with Tim Schaefer refusing to make one.

Who knows if Psychonauts 2 Will happen at all. Heck other than this and brutal legend, fans have been asking for a Conker's bad fur day sequel. But it wont happen at all.

Yeah as much as I love Psychonauts and would like to see a sequel, I really don't see what publisher would think supporting a sequel to "the greatest game no one played" is a good investment idea.

Or better yet, do a Wii port of the original!

In all seriousness, I also would seriously question if Double Fine actually owns the IP to Psychonauts or if the original publisher still has it.

Furthermore, JAF, you've claimed that a very vague comment is a sign that Schaefer is shopping the game around, but the source article claims no such thing despite being equally as sensational. It's a rather obnoxious trend in the gaming press to try and claim "exclusive announcements" out of statements exactly like this one. Even your thread title is trying to make it appear as if Psychonauts 2 is in development with a publisher and release schedule, when in reality all we have is...Tim Schaefer really wants to make it.
