If you’re eager to Play Phantasy Star Online 2 via Steam, there may be hope, as mentioned in the recently-released online manual in English.
The mention was sighted by Reddit user AnonMarc, located in the tutorial cerated for the closed beta of the game.
As you can see below, the manual hints very clearly to an upcoming Steam version on top of a Windows 10 launch, going as far as describing the launch procedure.
Do keep in mind that you need to be logged in to see it.
Of course, we should keep in mind that a Steam version has not been officially announced, so this should be taken with the customary grain of salt. Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon enough.
That being said, Phil Spencer himself went on record mentioning that the game will likely make it to other platforms, even if no further information was shared on that topic.
In the meanwhile, Sega is preparing to launch the sixth expansion on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Japan, where the game is still going strong, enough to get a physical release.
