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.
