Phasmophobia PS5 and Xbox release date estimate and latest news

After three long years of PC exclusivity, find out when the Phasmophobia PS5 and Xbox release date will arrive, as well as if the game offers PSVR support.

Phasmophobia PS5 Xbox Release Date: A person can be seen

When is the Phasmophobia PS5 and Xbox release date? After almost three years of being available on PC, Kinetic Games is finally bringing the hit multiplayer horror, Phasmophobia, to consoles where it will be developed alongside the PC version.

When it releases, it will be in early access on consoles, but Phasmophobia is already a huge hit on PC after blowing up on Twitch and YouTube with many streamers playing it and it becoming one of the best PC horror games. This shot the game to success during the COVID-19 pandemic and it is still played quite a bit on Steam. But, what can you expect from the game before it likely ends up on our best PS5 horror games and best Xbox horror games list?

Phasmophobia PS5 and Xbox release date estimate

The Phasmophobia release date for PS5 and Xbox has been indefinitely delayed. Kinetic Games confirmed the reason for the delay was due to “current challenges” following a fire at its offices. We now expect the console versions of the game to be released in early 2024, with support continuing throughout the year.

Originally announced for an August 2023 release, the developer says that “as we still try to adapt to our new remote working life after the fire incident and to establish a new office, we’ve encountered unforeseen challenges in adapting the game for consoles.”

Phasmophobia PSVR 2 support

Phasmophobia will support PSVR 2 on PS5, as confirmed by Kinetic Games in the reveal trailer. Little is known about its PSVR 2 functionality currently, but we will be sure to update the article when we find out more.

During the October delay of the game, Kinetic Games confirmed that it was “diligently reviewing the game’s performance and optimizing it across all maps to ensure a seamless experience”, primarily to help the performance for PSVR 2 players.

As such, the team has remodeled and remade the Maple Lodge Campsite in hopes of a better experience across the board. Despite only bringing issues for PSVR 2 players, Kinetic Games has remade the map for all platforms, including PC and the eventual console ports.

The game will allow for optional crossplay across PSVR 2, PC, PS5, and Xbox, so you can expect a similar experience to what you can find on PC right now.

That covers what we know about the console version of this hit multiplayer game ahead of the Phasmophobia PS5, Xbox release date. For even more great co-op games, check out our list of the best Xbox co-op games and best PS5 co-op games available right now.
