When is Phasmophobia releasing on PS5 and Xbox?
Phasmophobia has been available in early access on Steam since September 2020, making the wait for the console ports fairly long. While Kinetic Games has yet to announce a specific release date, it has confirmed that they will be released sometime in late October, very close to Halloween.
"We're pushing our biggest update ever back 2 weeks to mid-August for some final polish. As of now, the console release in late August is still on track." said Kinetic Game in an update on. The Ascension Progression 2.0 update has already launched, bringing with it changes to the levels system, equipment, and tiers. It doesn't look like there are going to be any new maps for now.

Unfortunately, the console versions have been delayed yet again, this time because of a fire incident that took place at Kinetic Games' office building, and partly because of "unpredicted development issues".
Here's the full statement from:
"First and foremost, we'd like to thank you all for your support and that you are just as excited as we are for the console release.
Due to a recent fire incident in our office building and unpredicted development issues, our ability to test and develop has been significantly impacted.
after careful consideration we have made the tough decision to delay the console release, initially set for August, while we get everything sorted. We are now aiming for a special launch during the week leading up to Halloween this October. This gives us the needed time to perfect and fine-tune everything. Your patience and understanding mean everything to us, and we can't wait to bring Phasmophobia to consoles."
With its early access launch in September 2020, Phasmophobia reached an all-time high of 112,717 active players. It not only initiated the ghost-hunting genre but also significantly influenced other games in the industry, with a few enjoying their own measures of success.
The addition of console ports will undoubtedly increase the workload for the small development team. It will be intriguing to see if they can maintain a consistent pace of updates while managing additional platforms, particularly with the demands of crossplay support. Unfortunately, Phasmophobia will not be launching on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, so this will at least help.
While we're waiting to hear about a specific release date in October for the console releases of Phasmophobia, why not brush up on some tactics by learning about how you can useand as defenses items during Ghost Hunts.
