As the developers of Studio MDHR admitted, The Delicious Last Course DLC for the crisp action platformer Cuphead will be delayed until next year. The reason given for the postponement was COVID-19-related delays.
After the various postponements in the past, The Delicious Last Course DLC for the action platformer Cuphead, which was announced in 2019, should have originally appeared this year. After the project had recently become quiet, the developers in charge of Studio MDHR admitted that the release at the end of 2020 will not work.
Instead, the effects or delays caused by the corona pandemic and the move to the home office led to The Delicious Last Course being postponed to 2021 on all platforms.
“In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren’t content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work. Throughout development, we’ve challenged ourselves to put everything we learned from making Cuphead into the quality of The Delicious Last Course’s animation, design, and music,” commented the indie studio on the renewed postponement of the DLC.
“Meeting this standard has been extremely challenging for us amid the global pandemic that has affected so many of our fellow developers. Rather than compromise on our vision in response to COVID, we’ve made the difficult decision to push back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should,” the studio said on Twitter.
Cuphead is available for the PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
