Phasmophobia Console Release Gets Delayed Until an Undisclosed Date


Kinetic Games has announced that the console release of Phasmophobia has been delayed until an undisclosed date.

The news came via the developer’s developer update blog, which states that the team needed to rework the Maple Lodge Campsite with a completely new layout, which is a time-consuming process.

The blog reads, “While we had hoped to present you with a special launch alongside the Halloween event, the complexity of our current challenges means we need more time. We will keep you updated on our progress and provide a revised release date as soon as we have more information to share. We are working diligently to minimize the impact of this delay, and we want to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support.”

Phasmophobia was scheduled to launch on the Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 on September 18, 2023, but was previously delayed from its original release date to Octo

ber due to an office fire.

The game’s Halloween event, which is scheduled to release on October 26, 2023, has not been affected by the console delay.

Despite the game only being in early access, it has received “Overwhelmingly Positive” reviews on Steam, with nearly 500,000 reviews.

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.

  1. So very upset by this. Game has been out for years, and I have been checking, literally every day, for an update on when this will release for Xbox X – When I saw that the game was delayed, but slated to release late October leading up to Halloween, I thought – OMG, that’s perfect, of course it would be around Halloween. So I’ve been all psyched up since August, again, checking every day for some news about release date.
    I do not own a computer and all I have wanted is to try out this awesome looking game. (Ive been watching Youtubers play it, and have been watching all sorts of guides and tips and otherwise just fun gameplay sessions.)
    Worse – their own twitter page has been silent on this and everyone else with a computer can continue to play this as they have for the last few years, and they continue to update and do events and add stuff – but getting to consoles seems like an afterthought. While I have no actual clue what it takes to get this over to consoles – I am burnt out waiting, and waiting and waiting, literally going for months with no new update on when it will be released – only to FINALLY see an update that isn’t from August, and it says delayed again with even less of a clue as to the “when”. I give up. I wish Kinetic success and hope the game continues to get the love it so obviously earns. I also wish I could be one of those players, but I am done giving all this time and love to a game I cannot even get the chance to play that has been out for YEARS. Goodbye Kinetic.
