Phantasy Star Online 2 looks set to launch across Europe and America in early 2013.
The news comes via a press release which seems to have leaked on to the internet earlier than anticipated.
According to the information provided, the game will launch in the west on PC in early 2013.
“Phantasy Star Online was a revolutionary game when it was released, and we want to make sure that its successor in the series is every bit as ambitious,” said Chris Olson, vice president of digital at Sega.
“We look forward to introducing Phantasy Star Online 2′s unique, easy-to-access multiplayer action to the rest of the world next year.”
Satoshi Sakai, the producer of Phantasy Star Online 2 at Sega of Japan, said: “The number one thing we want to provide players in Phantasy Star Online 2 is an adventure that changes every time they log in. Just as great table-top RPG experiences revolve around imaginative and unexpected encounters, we want players to consistently be surprised as they explore dungeons and undertake quests.”
The launch trailer seems to be set to private for now, so we’ll update this story when the announcement is made official.
Thanks, PSO World.
