Phasmophobia, the multiplayer ghost hunting horror game that took PC by storm, is heading to PS5 soon, with full PSVR2 support to boot. However, it won't be coming quite as soon as expected. Originally planned for a release in August, developer Kinetic Games has delayed the launch to October.

In a short statement on social media, the studio says "a recent fire incident in our office building and unpredicted development issues" are the reasons behind the delay. The team's "ability to test and develop has been significantly impacted".

The game is now planned to make its console debut in the week leading up to Halloween this October. "This gives us the time needed to perfect and fine-tune everything," Kinetic Games says.

Phasmophobia will launch into one of 2023's busiest months for game releases, arriving within days of Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Alan Wake 2, Sonic Superstars, Lords of the Fallen, and Alone in the Dark, among others. Players will be spoilt for choice, but at least launching close to Halloween is apt for this creepy multiplayer title.
