Double Fine Productions’ upcoming title, Psychonauts 2, which secured funding through their own crowdfunding service, Fig, has secured an additional $8 million from publisher Starbreeze Studios, who’ll also publish the game.
Starbreeze, mostly known for the Payday series, will be investing additional cash into Psychonauts 2’s marketing and distribution and in return will receive 85 percent of the game’s revenue until costs are recovered. From there, 60 percent of the revenue after that.
You’re probably wondering what Double Fine Productions get out of this deal? Well they’ll remain holders of the IP related to the game and the franchise giving them the freedom to continue to work with property without permission from Starbreeze.
Psychonauts 2 managed to secure $3.8 million through Fig back in 2016. The game currently doesn’t have a release date.
