Super Meat Boy Forever Delayed from April 2019 Window

Super Meat Boy Forever has been delayed, but it doesn't seem like it will be a long push back.

While the follow-up to the beloved indie Super Meat Boy was planned to finally arrive at some point this month, it seems this will no longer be the case.

As announced by developer Team Meat today on Twitter, Super Meat Boy Forever has now been pushed out of its April 2019 window. The developers didn’t provide a new release window or date as of this moment, but stated that they don’t expect the delay to be a long one. By the time the next trailer for Super Meat Boy Forever drops, it will contain the specific release date that will then be locked in.

Team Meat also said that they could have hit this April window had they overworked themselves, but they decided not to do this. Since the game is self-published by the developers at Team Meat, they can determine for themselves how hard they want to work without having to destroy themselves to meet certain deadlines. “We could have sacrificed our minds, bodies, and social lives to make April 2019 but that’s stupid,” said the message released on Twitter. “We are fortunate enough to have control over how we work and we choose not to run ourselves into the ground.”

While delays are never fun when you’re hotly anticipating a game, they almost always help improve the final product. Plus, it doesn’t seem like this push will be too long, so I wouldn’t fret too much if you’re discouraged by this news.

Super Meat Boy Forever will launch on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, iOS, Android, and PC via the Epic Games Store. DLC following the official release is also in the cards according to Team Meat.
