Cuphead – The Delicious Last Course was last said to be planned for 2020. Now, however, Studio MDHR announced that the new content has been pushed back to 2021. The developer pointed to the coronavirus pandemic as one of the main reasons why the extra time is needed.
This isn’t the first delay for The Delicious Last Course. It was previously planned for 2019, though it was then moved to 2020.
A statement from Studio MDHR’s Chad and Jared Moldenhauer reads:
While the Delicious Last Course is a continuation of Cuphead and Mugman’s grand adventure, it’s also a conclusion to the story that began on that fateful day at The Devil’s casino.
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.
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 the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should.
We know many of you have been waiting to return to the Inkwell Isles, and our goal is to make the trip back there next year a truly magical one.
