Forbes is reporting that Sega has announced their intent to release a console version of Phantasy Star Online 2 on the PS4 in 2016. The free to play MMORPG has been available on the PC, PS Vita, and mobile platforms for quite some time now in the East.
What's missing from the announcement? You guessed it. There's no mention on a PC or PS4 release coming to the West at all. While you can technically play the game through other areas of the world (using an English patch or the SEA version's English availability), an official Western release seems no closer than it was back in 2013 when the Western released was "delayed indefinitely."
We'll have to wait and see if the Tokyo Game Show reveals any details on a Western release as a playable version of the PS4 client is planned to be available at the event.
