Cuphead’s Delicious Last Course DLC has been delayed again
Studio MDHR pushes the expansion to 2021 due to Covid-19
Studio MDHR has delayed the release Cuphead’s Delicious Last Course DLC from this year to 2021.
Featuring fresh bosses and weapons, plus a new playable character, the expansion was originally scheduled for release in 2019, but was previously delayed to 2020.
Studio MDHR founders Chad and Jared Moldenhauer explained the reason for the latest delay in a social media update.
“In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren’t content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work,” they said. “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 back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should.”
Released in 2017 for PC and Xbox One before making its way to Switch in 2019 and PS4 this year, Cuphead has been widely praised for its art direction and boss battles.
The run and gun 2D platformer has won a string of high-profile awards and sold over four million copies worldwide.
