Here we go. Sega announced that Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis starts on June 9th. This is next wednesday!
PSO2: NGS marks the twentieth anniversary of Phantasy Star Online – and ten years of PSO2.
This is a massive expansion with a revamped graphics engine and updated game system. Here is the official release info:
Planned start date:
After maintenance on June 9, 2021 (Wed)
Due to the PSO2: NGS launch, the scheduled maintenance that would have taken place on June 9th (Wed) will be brought forward by about a day or two. More information will be announced at a later date.
Planned for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC in North America, the free-to-play Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will exist alongside Fantasy Star Online 2, each as a separate game. (That is, after scheduled maintenance! It’s good to get this out of the way.)
New Genesis will start in Japan on the same day on PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch as a cloud version.
