Following news that Microsoft has acquired Psychonauts 2 developer Double Fine Productions, now-former Psychonauts 2 publisher Starbreeze has announced that it assigned the game’s publishing rights to Microsoft in exchange for $13.2 million.

Starbreeze originally picked up the publishing rights for Psychonauts 2 in 2017 with a commitment to invest $8 million in the game's development.

So besides minecraft, Microsoft is publishing this on ps4?
Technically, yes, it will be a little bit of a "Microsoft Word for Mac" situation, but I think it's likely that DoubleFine will just be listed as the publisher.

(Minecraft for Nintendo and PlayStation products just list Mojang as the publisher even in the retail releases, while on Xbox the "Microsoft Studios" label is on the box and on the website.)
