Cuphead Delayed to Mid-2017 as Developers Opt Not to Make Compromises

If you’re eager to play Cuphead, you’ll have to wait a little longer, as announced today by the good folks at Studio MDHR.

The development team discussed the possibility to reduce the scope of the game (which will come for Xbox One and PC) to make the end of the year, but ultimately opted not to make compromises, determining a delay to mid-2017.

Hey everyone, we wanted to finish our game 80 years after 1936 but it will now be 81.

Throughout this year we discussed reducing the scope to make a 2016 release, but we made the difficult decision to delay the launch in order to ship with our vision intact. We are happy to announce that Cuphead will be coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam in Mid-2017.

We are constantly humbled by your continued support. Love you all and can’t wait to get this to you. Without further ado, we will get back to work!

It’s always nice to see when developers decide to stick their visions instead of rushing things. Cuphead looks charming, so we may as well wait a little longer, and get the full thing instead of a chopped up version earlier.
