Phasmophobia: Early Access Is Here To Stay For A While Longer

Phasmophobia, the viral ghost hunting game has become a favourite of many.

With many influencers creating content with this title, it's become a hit in the gaming community.

It seems the developer didn't expect so much attention!

Here's what we know about Phasmophobia staying in early access.

Early Access Prolonged

Solo developer, Dknighter, has come forward with plans to extended early access.

Phasmophobia originally released in September.

Dknighter didn't expect it to get the traction it did!

"I was planning for the server capacity hitting a maximum of 500 players on launch day and it to drop off from there," he told IGN, "Now the game has over 2 million sales, with a player peak of around 90k".

"I was originally planning the early access to be short, where I just add a few more maps, ghost types and equipment," Dknighter continued, "However, due to the game's popularity, everyone's expectations are increased so I am going to have to reconsider my plans for the game's future".

Future plans for the title can be found here.

Right now Dknighter's main concern is fixing major bugs in the game.

"These bug fixes would usually be sent out when they are ready but, due to me having to update a lot of the game's code, a lot of new systems need testing, so the next update will be a big stability and bug fix update".

It seems that newer content will "likely get bundled together in big updates".

One thing we know won't be coming to the game is the PVP mode previously mentioned.

"The second PvP mode was added to the Trello to see what everyone's reactions would be," Dknighter explained, "[but] right now I have no plans to add another game mode, as it would turn the game into something completely different, and push the game away from what I want it to be."
