Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course DLC delayed until next year

There’s good news and bad news for those wanting a few extra sips of Cuphead: it won’t be out till 2020. But there is a new trailer…

A new trailer for Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course (an acronym for DLC, geddit?) sounds exciting but this one comes with a sting in the tail: another delay for the game’s much anticipated expansion.

‘While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the Delicious Last Course expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for’, says Studio MDHR on their website.

‘Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for our team.’

They’re not the first developer recently to put the wellbeing of their staff ahead of keeping to a release date, as the games industry struggles with the human cost of the ‘crunch’ to finish games.

‘We’re taking a page out of Chef Saltbaker’s book, and spending the necessary time to get the recipe just right’, adds the developer. ‘We’ll be moving the release of The Delicious Last Course, for all platforms, to 2020.’

The original game was delayed several times before it was eventually released, so the news isn’t much of a surprise, and given how well it turned out we don’t think many will begrudge the extra wait.

The only downside is that probably means it’ll be even longer until we find out what they’re doing after Cuphead.
