It couldn't be a Summo Digital game without a hiccup somewhere. Hopefully when the online portion releases it doesn't come out like with Little Big Planet 3 MP. Which is hopefully what they should be trying to avoid here. These guys literally can't do net code to save their lives. Sony should stop contracting them, no matter how cheap they may be.

Hi there – with the release of Sackboy: A Big Adventure a little over a week away, I wanted to share some news regarding Online Multiplayer* functionality.

We’ve made the difficult decision to delay the full online multiplayer functionality within Sackboy: A Big Adventure. The team have been working hard to ensure that online is the very best experience it can be for players and we just need a little more time to get it right so you can enjoy it to the fullest with your friends and family.

Online multiplayer functionality will instead be coming via a patch by end of 2020. (Account for PSN and internet connection required.) This patch will also include:
  • Cross-generation multiplayer where PS4 and PS5 users can play together
  • Game save transfers from PS4 to PS5**

On launch day you’ll still be able to enjoy Sackboy with your household in offline couch co-op party play. 2-4 player parties can play through the whole game including unmissable co-op only levels.

We understand this will be disappointing for those of you hoping to take advantage of the online multiplayer functionality at launch and appreciate the patience.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to celebrating the launch of Sackboy: A Big Adventure with you all next week!

It's Sumo, OP. Like... well, like Sumo.

This is 100% my "my girlfriend wants a go of my new purchase" game, as long as couch is there day one I'm good. I really hope it's a little gem.
