Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to Xbox One in North America

“Regarding an EMEA release, there’s nothing to confirm right now,” says Sega

Sega has confirmed that Phantasy Star Online 2 will be coming to the Xbox One in North America, but has said it can’t yet confirm a European release for the game.

Phantasy Star Online 2 was revealed during the Xbox E3 conference, with a trailer stating that “Japan’s greatest online RPG launches in the west via Xbox One”.

However, shortly after the conference ended the official Sega Twitter account clarified that the announcement was only for North America, and that a European release is not yet confirmed.

“#PSO2 is finally making its western debut in North America on Xbox One in Spring 2020,” it said. “Regarding an EMEA release, there’s nothing to confirm right now. We understand it’s frustrating, but when we have more news to share, we will.”

Originally released on PC in Japan in 2012, Phantasy Star Online 2 has also seen Japanese releases on PlayStation Vita, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

The Xbox One release, planned for spring 2020, will include all the existing content and will be free-to-play.

Sega had previously announced that the PC version was coming to North America and Europe back in 2013, but it was never released.
