Smash hit ghost-hunting horror game, Phasmophobia, has been delayed once again on consoles. Developer Kinetic Games made the announcement via an update on Steam, where it says it needs more time to get the console versions running optimally.

Initially planned to arrive in August, the game was pushed back once already to October due to a fire incident, but has now been delayed indefinitely. The studio explains that a combination of the fire, unforeseen challenges, and adapting to working from home have led to this latest delay. "These combined factors have affected our development timeline more than we initially anticipated," it says.

The game is coming to PS5 with full PSVR2 support, and in optimising the game for these platforms, the developer has needed to completely redesign one of the maps with a new layout. "This decision, though time-consuming for our art team, is essential to provide the best possible gameplay experience," reads the blog.

"We will keep you updated on our progress and provide a revised release date as soon as we have more information to share," it continues. "We are working diligently to minimize the impact of this delay, and we want to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support."

So, we don't know exactly when Phasmophobia is coming to PlayStation, but hopefully it won't be too much further down the line.
