Freedom Planet 2 has been in development since 2015, with the PC version originally launching this spring. However, in March, GalaxyTrail delayed the release date in late summer due to unforeseen circumstances, including lead developer Sabrina DiDuro sustaining a hand injury that required extensive physical therapy. The team said it was eager to release the console version alongside the PC version, but the releases were split because the console ports need to undergo more testing and certification than anticipated.
