Although the PC release of Spelunky 2 is coming without online co-op, it seems the wait will be worth it. Players on both PC and PS4 will get access to Spelunky 2 cross-play soon, according to the game’s creator. Speaking on Twitter, developer Derek Yu said that they chose to release the game without co-op to “improve the game without delaying the release.” He didn’t say when online co-op will be added to the game; all we know is it won’t be available when it releases on September 29.
Spelunky 2 is coming to Steam next Tuesday! Unfortunately, we decided not to release with online co-op enabled – that way we can improve it without delaying the release. The upside is that when we add it back, it will have cross-play with PS4! (…)https://t.co/8lKyxjbxh9

The PC release of Spelunky 2 is coming via the Steam store. Currently, the game is only available for PS4 and PC. There’s been no word on any Xbox or Nintendo Switch ports of the game. However, the original game did make it to Xbox 360 eventually. Who knows, maybe we’ll get cross-play across all consoles eventually. For now, only PC and PlayStation users will be able to enjoy the critically acclaimed platforming adventure.
