It took forever but Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally coming to the West this month in upgraded fashion, as it has now been rebranded Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis and will be coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
The initial announcement of Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis came as a shock to many since it was unveiled during an Xbox Series X showcase and many never expected a Western release, let alone on Microsoft’s current and next-gen consoles.
Is Phantasy Star 2: New Genesis Coming To PS4 And PS5?
With all this news about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis on Xbox consoles, many are wondering if this game will show Sony some love and come out on PS4 or PS5.
Japan is getting the game on those consoles, as well as the Nintendo Switch if you can believe that, but as of this writing, there is no Western release for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis on PS4 or PS5, which is a shame.
Not getting this game on Western Sony consoles is a bit weird since the PS4 and PS5 are home to a couple of hit MMORPGs like Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
Fans could point out that translation could be a problem but that’s already been done for PC and Xbox One, so the fact Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis isn’t on PS4 or PS5 is a bit of a mystery if we’re being completely honest.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be coming to the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on June 9.
