Revealed during the Xbox’s E3 2019 briefing, Phantasy Star Online 2 will be arriving later next year on the Xbox One and PC, along with the power of Microsoft’s Azure servers.
As one of the most requested Japanese games to be brought to the West on the PS4, many fans of the series wondered why Xbox One would be the only console to receive the MMO that fans have taken the time to translate just so they could play it.
Great news! The Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer ‘broke’ the news that will be coming to other consoles over on the Giant Bombcast at the 40:40 mark:
Yes, it will end up on all platforms. The point was to have SEGA on our stage since it’s been a while.
So worry not my friends, you’ll have two separate systems where you get to play PSO2 truly for free when it launches sometime on in 2020. MAYBE. The Switch version is a Cloud version in Japan, which has had Cloud releases for Resident Evil 7 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey overseas which have yet to release in the West. While I can’t comment on the availability of the Switch version, I don’t see a reason why the PS4 version won’t release here at some point in the near future.
