Spelunky 2 is set to be released on PC on September 29, and unfortunately it won’t launch with online co-op as developer Mossmouth is working to “improve it without delaying the release.”

Spelunky 2 creator Derek Yu took to Twitter to say that even though that may be disappointing news for some, the “upside is that when we add it back, it will have cross-play with PS4!”

Yu also discussed how PS4 recently got two big patches that “fixed a lot of issues based on your feedback (thank you!) and also improved online co-op significantly.”

So, even though the PC version of Spelunky 2 won’t have co-op at launch, PC players won’t have to wait any longer to play the game we gave a 10/10.

In our review for Spelunky 2, we said it “is a masterpiece of procedurally generated platforming that stays true to the legendarily challenging original while also holding surprises around every corner.”
