Midnight City Publishing Double Fine's Costume Quest 2

Costume Quest is getting sequel. Yeah, we're pretty surprised about it too.

Double Fine Productions and indie publisher Midnight City have announced that Costume Quest 2 is coming to PCs and consoles. This will be Double Fine's first big sequel, since we're still waiting for another Psychonauts game. It's Halloween again, so Wren and Reynold have to dress up and protect Auburn Pines from things only they can imagine. The game is coming out on Halloween this year.

"For the last couple of years. Whenever Halloween came around, I felt like something was missing," said Double Fine creative director Tim Schafer. "No matter how many pumpkins I carved, apples I bobbed, or candy I ate, it just couldn't fill the big spooky hole inside of me. But then I realized what was missing: I needed more Costume Quest. And also, I really wanted a T-Shirt with glowing skulls on it."

"It's not every day that you're able to work with talent like Double Fine," said Casey Lynch, VP of Publishing at Midnight City. "We're moving into a brand-new middle that's taking shape in the widening gap between word-of-mouth indie and triple A."

Double Fine regained the rights to Costume Quest and Stacking in November of last year. The rights were actually purchased from THQ's bankruptcy auction in April by Darksiders's new owner Nordic Games, but it seems the two companies came to an understanding. Once that happened, Double Fine worked quickly to get a Costume Quest sequel in the works.
