Hang in there, guys; Sega has confirmed through Twitter that the Western versions of the eternally delayed MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 are still happening. After missing its original 2013 launch date, plenty of subsequent rumors of cancellation and even the release of the SEA version (May 2014), Western players were losing hope on getting this MMO.
Finally breaking the complete silence that lasted for many months, Sega replied on Twitter with the following:
@Japan_Game_Love PSO2 is still delayed. SEGA is currently working on bringing PSO2 to the West and will update as soon as we know more.

So it’s great news then, although we admit that we would prefer a new screenshot or gameplay video to bring the hype back to life. We have a few Phantasy Star Online 2 gameplay videos recorded from the Japanese version, so don’t forget to take a look.
Now we only need to ask NCsoft what’s going on with the Western version of Blade and Soul!
