The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Has Been Delayed to 2020 in the Most Stanley Parable Way Possible
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is coming a little later than we expected, but this new video from the developer surely makes it worth wait.
Among all of the indie games to have come out in the past few years, not many have been able to leave quite as distinct of a mark as The Stanley Parable. The 2013 title, which originally started out as a mod of Half-Life 2, quickly grew a cult following for its whimsical humor and unique gameplay with multiple endings, and while the upcoming Ultra Deluxe version of the game is on the horizon, we’ll have to wait just a bit longer for it.
Developer Crows Crows Crows has confirmed that The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe has been delayed to 2020. However, considering that this is The Stanley Parable, this is no simple announcement of a delay, as the news comes from a cheeky video that Crows Crows Crows put together to answer fan questions and letters sent since Ultra Deluxe was announced. Let’s just say that it perfectly fits the humor of the game, and it’s better to watch without any hints at what’s to come.
The Stanley: Parable: Ultra Deluxe was first announced at The Game Awards in December 2018, and serves as both a remaster and expansion of the original game. Ultra Deluxe, when it releases, will bring over the acclaimed cult indie game over with plenty of new content, new endings, and more to add on to the charming experience of the 2013 title.
Ultra Deluxe also marks the first time that the game will be coming to consoles, with the original having been released for PC, Mac, and Linux initially. Crows Crows Crows has not yet revealed which consoles that Ultra Deluxe will be coming to, but said that players can expect it to arrive “sometime probably before” summer 2020. The game is also being developed with the Unity engine to streamline the process of porting it over to consoles.
The Stanley Parable will arrive sometime in 2020 for PC and consoles. However, I’ll leave it to you to watch the full delay announcement video — it’s quite the watch:
