Double Fine boss Tim Schafer has actually said he's pitched a Psychonauts sequel "several times".
Schafer told Digital Spy no publisher has played ball with it. Yet.
"I get a lot of, on Twitter or whatever, daily questions about Psychonauts 2. And I would love to do Psychonauts 2, I've actually pitched that to publishers several times and no-one has taken the bait so far," he said.
"So it is hard because fans often don't know how the business works, with the difference between a developer and a publisher, it's hard to explain that.
"I'd love to do that game, but I'd have to convince someone to just give me a few million dollars. That's all."
The original Psychonauts launched back in 2005 to massive critical acclaim and a big fan following, but low sales.
