All right, so it has already been seven years and basically everyone who was excited about this game has probably long since given up hope on it. We’re not going to blame you if you thought that Phantasy Star Online 2 was a lot cause. But guess what? It’s happening! The game is getting localized according to Microsoft’s E3 conference, with a planned launch of spring 2020.
Yes, that means another year-long wait until it actually happens, but the important thing is that it will be localized and available in the US on Xbox and PC with crossplay. Since Microsoft has been pushing hard on the crossplay for PC, that’s an unsurprising caveat. We’ll no doubt learn more in the months to come, but for now the reality of its localization is surprising enough.
#PSO2 is finally making its western debut in North America on Xbox One in Spring 2020. Regarding an EMEA release, there's nothing to confirm right now. We understand it’s frustrating, but when we have more news to share, we will. Stay tuned to https://t.co/jlgi18auv2 for updates. pic.twitter.com/Tjii62el6G
